Schools need as much support as possible to ensure that their science teachers receive the access to the best teaching resources and the widest range of opportunities for their students.
This is why the Royal Society of Chemistry has launched a free partnership programme for schools: Learn Chemistry Partnership. The partnership aims to advance excellence in chemistry education by providing networking opportunities and tailored support for schools.
Educators who register their school for Learn Chemistry Partnership – whether they are Head of Science, department technician or enthusiastic NQT – will become their school’s main contact for chemistry and will be the first to know of new Royal Society of Chemistry education products and discounts.
Registered schools will receive a subscription to Education in Chemistry magazine, the voice of innovative chemistry teaching and best practice. They will also receive The Mole, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s magazine for students and anyone inspired to dig deeper into chemistry. Plus, a monthly e-newsletter will keep Learn Chemistry Partnership contacts up-to-date with the latest developments.
In recognition of their subject expertise, Learn Chemistry Partnership contacts receive free Royal Society of Chemistry membership. Member benefits include careers support and a personal copy of Education in Chemistry.
A community of teachers
Each Learn Chemistry Partnership school is connected to an Education Coordinator based in their region. Royal Society of Chemistry Education Coordinators have relationships with professionals working in the science education sector and also build contacts in industry. They can help teachers can find out about resources, events and courses in their area, and network with their peers in nearby schools.
Learn Chemistry Partnership schools are the first to know about the latest new resources on Learn Chemistry, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s innovative education website. Teachers and students can explore thousands of free resource downloads, substance pages, articles and activities. Using videos, simulations, games, worksheets and more, teachers can enthuse and inspire their students.
These teaching materials relate content to everyday life and real-world challenges in areas such as: medicines; air quality; scare natural resources; energy; lifestyle; and agricultural productivity. They are designed to encourage students of all abilities to approach challenges through problem solving and analytical thinking.
