STEM Learning

CaSTEM Logombridgeshire & Peterborough Science Learning Partnership, are one of the regional representatives of STEM Learning.

They provide science CPD and support for all phases of education (Early Years right through to FE) and all career stages (Early Career to Head of Science / Primary Subject Lead), as well as supporting technicians across our region.

SEND

Supporting Students with SEND in STEM subjects

Students with SEND may need additional help and support in the classroom. Consider some of the teaching strategies and approaches for students with special educational needs and disability, the underpinning of these principles and the role of specialist knowledge in teaching these pupils. You will then also consider how these approaches can be supported through your teaching of STEM.
