Newstead Wood School coordinates and manages the South East London Science Learning Partnership (SLP), which provides quality, subject specific continuous professional development (CPD) for primary and secondary schools, and FE providers in our area.

It is part of a network of SLPs and other support for schools that is managed by STEM Learning. SLPs work collaboratively to design opportunities, together with our expert presenters, to help you to provide the very best science education for your students.

SLPs combine local expertise in teaching and learning in science, facilitating CPD, and providing school-to-school support. They are led by local teaching school alliances, schools and colleges with excellence in science, higher education institutions, and other local partners with cutting-edge expertise in science.

We offer quality, high impact science CPD through a range of full day or twilight sessions. We also work with schools on an individual basis to provide bespoke support to meet the differing needs of schools across the area. In addition to our published timetable of CPD courses, we offer bespoke CPD to meet your schools specific needs.

Through the DfE funded Triple Science Support Programme we work with Secondary schools over a two year period to develop their Triple Science offer. The DfE also allow us to work with Priority Primary Schools to give fully funded CPD support to develop Science Teaching and Learning. 

Previous course participants have said:


“The session was excellent – great ideas, practical, wow factor!” 
“I will remember to give pupils ownership over the planning stage of an investigation.” 
“Clear explanations, good knowledge and OFSTED explanations”


Please get in touch to find out how we can support the needs of you, your department and your school.
