Science Teaching Leadership Programme

22 March | Applications close


Make a difference to students’ science learning!  Apply for the Science Teaching Leadership Programme, an exciting opportunity for schools to develop scientifically literate citizens.

The Science Teaching Leadership Programme provides opportunities for primary schools, secondary science departments and their nominated teachers to enhance the teaching of science within school communities.

The Science Teaching Leadership Programme makes a real difference to students' science learning by:

  • Enhancing science programmes to better engage students and develop their science knowledge and skills
  • Contributing to the professional learning and development of teachers
  • Building links between schools and practising scientists

The Science Teaching Leadership Programme supports the Government’s strategic direction for Science in Society.

The Programme is a full school or science department initiative that requires a commitment from the school to prioritise science as a key focus area for professional learning.

Schools nominate a teacher to develop their curriculum leadership skills in science, connect with others learning about the Nature of Science, and develop links with science organisations in their communities.
