Chemistry for Non-Specialists
This affordable, high quality training programme is designed to provide teachers with the confidence, flair and enthusiasm to teach chemistry at KS3 or KS4. It is specifically aimed at those who are not chemistry specialists.
The four-day courses comprise a two-day residential and two one-day follow-up events at approximately one term intervals. They are delivered by experienced chemistry teachers, trained by the RSC. Courses are available at venues across England and are organised in collaboration with the National Network of Science Learning Centres.
In February 2008 the RSC commissioned the National Foundation of Educational Research (NFER) to evaluate the impact of the training on teachers who attended courses during 2007. The findings were very positive and the final report is available to download as a PDF.
