The Learned Societies’ Group on Scottish Science Education, which includes representation from the Society of Biology, Institute of Physics, Royal Society of Chemistry and Association for Science Education has commissioned Pye Tait Consulting to undertake research in to the resourcing of school science in Scotland. The aim of the research is to obtain up-to-date evidence relating to the state of funding and practical equipment resourcing for the delivery of science in schools in Scotland. The evidence from this important research will inform further work to be undertaken by the Learned Scientific Societies, in particular prioritising and formulating responses to key emerging issues for the benefit of schools in Scotland.
We have previously sought expressions of interest on this message board for science teachers to take part in this survey research. The secondary school survey will remain open until recherche vetement grande taille femme kuba leute kennenlernen donde conocer gente medellin rencontres УЉconomiques d'aix en provence 2015 source site rencontre traduction anglais uk style speed dating seattle source site erweiterte pupillen flirten Thursday 26 June and it is available at: www.pyetait.com/secondaryscience
There is therefore still time if you wish to complete the survey if your school has not already done so. The survey is aimed at local authority maintained schools and only one response per school is sought.
The survey measures how schools resource practical science against a number of benchmarks, including the equipment they have and use, the funding of science within schools and the number of teaching and technician hours.
In order to complete the information requested, you may need to refer to colleagues, as appropriate. The survey therefore contains a ‘save and return’ option and there is also a link to a Word version to help respondents prepare responses before submitting these online.
