About the PET
As part of the national Science Learning Partnership network since 2005, the North Midlands and Black Country SLP has an established reputation for the facilitation and delivery of high quality, high impact, flexible continuing professional development programmes. Our vision is to work collaboratively to support high aspirations and improved outcomes for teachers, technicians and hence young people from KS1-KS5 across our region.
We provide a range of professional learning programmes to meet teacher and technician needs from KS1-KS5. This ranges from face to face hands-on practical courses in local venues near you to extended facilitated online development networks. Our work is research and evidence based, responsive to current needs and is delivered by quality assured facilitators.

New for this year these sustained blended learning packages support current needs and offer flexibility and good value for money. They run for a year from joining and allow for the embedding of good practice and shared reflection with colleagues. This in turn leads to high impact for the students.

We are able to draw on a wide range of expertise to support school improvement whether it’s curriculum planning and development, working with new and experienced Subject Leaders, carrying out needs analyses leading to a tailored CPD programme or preparing for Ofsted. We are very happy to discuss your needs in detail in order to develop a tailored, high impact approach that works for you.

The high quality of our programmes is due in part to the strength of our facilitators and we are always seeking opportunities to work with school based colleagues who wish to develop their skills and expertise in working with colleagues whether this is within the Science Learning Partnership Network or within the facilitor’s own school. Our Facilitator Development Programme leads to accreditation through STEM Learning’s CPD Quality Mark. In addition, our CPD and FDP programme ensures coverage of the Teachers’ Standards and the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development.
