Quinquennial review of the national network of science learning centres

This review covers past performance from 2008 to 2012 and recommendations for the future for the national science learning centre.



In 2011, the Wellcome Trust and the Department for Education (DfE) agreed to conduct a joint review every five years, of the regional science learning centres (RSLCs), the NSLC and Project ENTHUSE.

This review will therefore inform the final funding decisions for the NSLC and Project ENTHUSE (with the current funding period ending on 31 July 2013) and will also provide guidance for the DfE on the retendering of the RSLCs (with the current funding period ending on 31 March 2013).
