Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, STEM Learning already had a substantial number of free online CPD (Continuing Professional Development) resources for STEM teachers available on the Futurelearn platform. This platform is designed to support STEM teachers in different stages in their career. 

 

As a result of the COVID-19 resulted in a rapid increase in engagement with CPD. For example, STEM Learning received 1000 registrations for an online Maths course in just five days time. 

 

In addition to the existing online courses, STEM Learning is currently developing online / remote delivery versions of the normal face-to-face courses as well as a special online summer programme for teachers. Currently 26 science remote delivery courses are in development.

 

All of STEM Learning's online courses can be accessed by teachers - including outside the UK - by visiting the CPD webpage via the link above.
