Professional development for STEM teachers
Ofsted good practice example showing how teachers and managers at Petroc College inspire students to sustain their enthusiasm about STEM subjects.
Many young school children enjoy science, particularly practical investigations. Yet this interest does not always translate into success in the sciences at secondary school or sustaining this early interest to seek careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This example shows how teachers and managers at Petroc have successfully inspired students to continue their enthusiasm about STEM subjects and to progress to related further and higher education.
