Our Science Learning Partnership (SLP) is part of the National Science Learning Network. We provide high quality continuing professional development (CPD) for STEM teachers, technicians, lecturers and teaching assistants working with pupils aged 5 to 19.

Our CPD is well established and through needs analysis and DfE priorities; it focuses on an evidence base of what works and makes a difference in schools and the classroom.

Your local SLP is based here at Ashton Community Science College. It provides face to face and tailored courses which are affordable and available locally. This approach will ensure that we all continue to inspire and develop the next generation of scientists and engineers and we have a well informed and scientifically capable society.

Why choose us?

Our professional development has proven impact and it is affordable. There are a number of bursaries available throughout the year which will help fund your CPD delivery.
