For Schools

Advice and audit

Perhaps you are a headteacher looking for advice on science as a core subject?…perhaps anticipating inspection?…needing help with recruitment?

Christina has worked with many science faculties to draw out strengths and recommend change.  She can help raise the profile of the science department, advise on delivering an engaging curriculum and enrichment or even help recruit new teachers. Christina can then devise and deliver a bespoke CPD programme of training and mentoring to meet the needs of the faculty, ensuring that girls and boys continue to be stimulated in science throughout school and beyond.

Get in touch to explore how Christina can help within any budget and over any timescale.

Training and mentoring

Christina has experience of training teachers in whole departments, small groups or one-to-one, and mentoring heads of science.

Perhaps you are:

  • a head of science seeking mentoring on some aspect of your role?…an external supporter to help implement change? …seeking ways of re-invigorating the curriculum within budgetary constraints?
  • a CPD coordinator looking for an experienced science (physics specialist) trainer?
  • a new science teacher, or sole physics specialist in need of a friendly mentor? …or teaching physics outside your specialism?

Contact Christina for a chat about how she can work with your teaching team or in a mentoring capacity. It might be helping out with GCSE and A level physics practicals, supporting literacy and numeracy in science or devising strategies for stretch and challenge.

With over 25 years’ experience of these issues Christina is happy to discuss the best way to achieve your aims.

Excellent and inspiring! Really interactive session that provided much needed invigoration and amazingly refreshing ideas.

Very calm and knowledgeable. Christina’s advice evidently came with a wealth of experience. Skilled at refocusing the conversation and guiding me to reflect on my own practice.
