The Wellcome Trust and the Department for Education commissioned this research to evaluate the national network of science learning centres (SLCs).
The national network of SLCs was set up in the context of a wide range of reports and strategies which called for the education system to provide more and better science literate people. To this end, the network provides quality science-specific continuing professional development (CPD) to educators.
The main focus of this evaluation has been to understand the effectiveness of the delivery mechanism, the impact of the CPD activity that has been delivered, and options for future strategy and sustainability of the SLC Network.
