Statement relating to the COVID-19 pandemic: 
In the light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Physics Partners has moved all its training online. Our sessions are now delivered using Zoom or Teams. We hope to be able to again offer face to face sessions in early 2021. In the meantime, staff are working from home and are available to answer any queries about training opportunities.

What we offer

We come to you so the teachers and technicians can use the apparatus available in your school. The need for the school to provide expensive cover is reduced, and the cost of travelling time for teachers and technicians is eliminated.

Our aims are to build teachers’ confidence in carrying out experiments and demonstrations, to increase their knowledge of physics and to enable them to provide hands-on experience that is essential if pupils are to enjoy science.

Physics Partners is fully accredited as a CPD provider.

Customised training

A series of CPD accredited training sessions conducted by two qualified physics teachers with an enhanced DBS certificate, who are STEM Ambassadors and have received specialist training from the Institute of Physics.

Teaching and mentoring

Teaching, mentoring and notes to extend the knowledge and understanding of teachers up to the standard of A level physics. Email and telephone support is provided by the training team leader between visits.

Classroom resources

Online library of clear, detailed resources, including experiment worksheets for pupils, with additional information and sample results for teachers and technicians; and PowerPoint presentations related to each experiment for use in class.
