Secondary Activities to Enhance Curriculum Delivery

 

Entrust STEM Centre offers an evolving portfolio of curriculum-focussed activities designed to meet the needs of modern education.

 Staffordshire STEM Secondary Activity

We aim to add maximum value to STEM teaching and learning in order to facilitate Transition from Primary to Secondary Schools and from Further Education to Higher Education. Our team has the expertise and time to develop resources and plan activities that support the learner experience. Wherever possible we use contexts from real life activities and case studies from industry.

 

Delivery

Most of our specially designed programmes are delivered within a specific time frame by a member of our team. For some projects, we provide the resources and support necessary for effective teacher delivery. Some activities are flexible enough to give teachers a choice of delivery.
 

Help your school address the latest changes in educational thinking!
