Science networking and workshops sessions
Science Teach Meet for Heads of Science
Hosted by our School of Education at the University of Birmingham, we will be offering Teach Meet networking sessions, specifically designed for sharing best practice of leadership and management skills that are identified as essential to the Science Middle Leader's role. Subject leaders will share approaches to leading their department in relation to the key aspects of the National Standards for Subject Leaders, including handling of data and assessment. This will also pose as an opportunity for Science Middle Leaders to discuss Science curriculum design and development, such as benefits and drawbacks of a 3 year GCSE model and an increased awareness of exam boards and resources used by different Science departments in UAE schools.

It will involve discussion of best practice in Health and Safety including use of CLEAPPS, creating and managing chemical and equipment inventory, use of suppliers for best fit in the UAE, examples of alternative and 'DIY' equipment and the changing role of Lab Technicians in secondary science.
