Plymouth Science Learning Partnership (SLP) provides quality, subject specific continuous professional development for primary and secondary schools  and HE/FE in the area. It is part of a network of SLPs and other support for schools that is managed by STEM Learning.


We combine local expertise in teaching and learning in science, facilitating CPD, and providing school-to-school support. We offer quality, high impact science CPD through a range of full day or twilight sessions. We also work with schools on an individual basis to provide bespoke support to meet the differing needs of schools across the area.

"By providing an enormous range of practical-based activities for us to use, staff were able to develop confidence in teaching physics concepts to students, and do so more effectively [..] we have been absolutely thrilled with our outcomes, and I am particularly thankful to the SPN programme for helping us so much." 

- Craig Gowing Head of Science
