A level Physics CPD for Teachers

A series of free, online CPD sessions from Surrey Maths School and King’s Maths School for teachers of Physics A level.

Each week Nora Kettleborough, Co-Headteacher of Surrey Maths School and A Level Physics specialist, will cover a different A-level topic and address the following outcomes:

  • Asking the explorative questions: how to get students to lead their own learning
  • Increasing engagement in the subject & making links across the Physics A-level
  • Challenging high-attainers
  • Grounding physics lessons in key learning and understanding rather than the syllabus

Here's the key information:

  • The content is non-exam board specific
  • All sessions take place via Teams on Wednesdays, 16.30 - 17.15
  • You can attend one, some, or all the sessions, according to what interests you
  • This CPD is free; there is no charge to register or attend
