Technicians supporting A-level training

Discussion in 'Supporting Physics' started by Tracey Padgham, Oct 9, 2018.

  1. Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows of any training that is upcoming to help techs supporting A-level physics?
  2. Are you a member of Cleapss? They have a couple of courses that might be suitable. Alternatively perhaps you could get together with a couple of nearby schools and get someone from the IoP in to do a short course with the kit you will actually be using.
  3. Yes, our school is a member of CLEAPSS & I do regularly check their training schedule
    The issue I have is that I'm at a school in the Caribbean & access to training is, therefore, somewhat limited...I'm sure someone from the IoP would love to come do an INSET here though!
  4. I volunteer my services!

  5. There is a chap who was made redundant who seems to fly around the world supporting technicians. Is it Simon Quinell? Perhaps if he gets a job in your direction he could be persuaded to divert for a bit for a fee!

    Simon would love that he's just got back from training teachers in Singapore
  7. I did say to him that perhaps I could get the science team to do a needs analysis for training & give him a shout!

  9. If you talk to Helen Rose at STEM, she's now in charge and sorting the tech courses, many of which have been axed. If you need her email, PM me.
