Triple Science

Triple Science Support Programme (TSSP) is a DfE funded support programme that helps schools, managers and teachers plan, develop and deliver Triple Science GCSEs. The programme offers schools training, consultancy, networking opportunities, resources and publications.

AvonTSA continues to host a series of network meetings designed to encourage teachers of Triple Science from local schools to share ideas and good practice.

Evaluation of the National Triple Science Support Programme indicates that participant schools have made considerable improvements in their triple science provision, have supported the development of individual teachers’ knowledge and skills, and increased the capacity and capability of science departments to teach triple science.

 

Currently available

With the support of the TSSP and STEM Learning, Avon TSA is offering three Triple Science workshops focusing on Biology, Chemistry and Assessment Objective 2.  These events are free of charge.

Quantitative & Carbon Chemistry

This will be a hands-on workshop based around the teaching of quantitative and carbon chemistry.  You will be given an opportunity to carry out the practical activities and develop teaching strategies which you can use directly with your students.

Assessment Objective 2 Focus

This will be a workshop based around the teaching and preparation of students to better meet the demands of the GCSE science questions and also to consider better lesson design.  You will be given an opportunity to carry out and develop teaching strategies which you can use directly with your students.

Microbiology & New GCSE Content

Science teachers who wish to improve their knowledge and understanding of the Triple Science biology topics would benefit from this workshop.  It is particularly relevant to non-biology specialists and biologists new to the Triple Science GCSE content.
