STEM Learning, in discussion with several ITE providers, has developed a dedicated page for ITE, where we are grouping quality-assured resources and content that may be of particular use to trainee teachers and their providers. This includes links to our teacher standards pages, for primary and secondary level, which contain resources to help exemplify and help evidence progress against the standards with a particular focus on science and computing.

We also realise that placements in school are likely to be more difficult to achieve, and observation of experienced staff may not have the usual feel to it- particularly in science where fewer practicals will be taking place. So, we have pulled together a large collection of classroom footage which can be used by ITE providers to help trainees gain a wider experience in preparing for the classroom.

STEM Learning also run a large series of courses with different delivery methods to suit an individual’s needs, with a range of face to face and online options available. There are a range of courses suitable for teachers who are training including support for effective practical work in the lab, subject knowledge and behaviour management.

We have made a start and will continue to welcome great ideas for further support. Please take a look at the dedicated ITE page, and give us your thoughts.
