Re: Engaging and exciting year 9 schemes of work
Andrew The links were made through parents mostly and seeing who was a member of the RSC at the time. At parents evening I often asked if they had a connection with chemistry.

"We use those". One skirmish with the hormone years won! I never had workplace issues but industry cannot have students on a plate, training needs to be offered at the company's expense. Just like teachers have with their CPD, cough cough. Bob
