    The CONNECT project offers an amazing opportunity for Early Career Teachers to develop pedagogical strategies skills and specialist curriculum knowledge.

    This provides an opportunity for teachers to work together on a project and may be particularly beneficial for an NQT/ECT and their mentor as part of their training package.

    Teachers that take part in the project will work directly with a coach, who is an experienced science teacher and expert in open schooling projects. The Coach will guide the teachers through the project, providing feedback and offering support.

    Using our adaptable ready-made resources, the teachers will gain valuable experience in how to carry out effective inquiry teaching – how to teach skills such as argumentation, using evidence and analysing data, as well as, successful adaptation of contexts and implementation of tools like group discussion and effective questioning.

    Teachers will also become part of a community of CONNECT teachers across the country who will share successful practices. There will be a special certificate recognised by the International Board of CONNECT project funded by the European Union.
