Continuing Professional Development

AMBER offers a whole school professional development course for primary schools and for Junior Cycle teachers through the JCT STE(A)M programme.

For primary schools we focus on curriculum integration to further teaching of science with other subject areas, addressing content knowledge, nature of science, hands-on-learning and building to inquiry based pedagogy.

We focus on the following:

  • Explicit discussions around how to translate CPD content to the classroom, i.e. practical strategies and how to make them work for every teacher’s specific needs.
  • Opportunities for teachers to implement their learning by experimenting in the classroom and reflection.
  • Opportunities for teachers to analyse and reflect on the theory behind a programme and its approach.
  • Peer support in which teachers work together to test and refine new approaches.

Please contact us to enroll your school in our free CPD programme.
