About our Key Note Speaker - Louise Stubberfield

Louise Stubberfield began her career as a microbiologist, with six years’ in industrial research, before deciding on a career change that included twenty years’ experience in primary teaching as science subject lead, SEND specialist and school leader in a range of primary schools in South East England.

Championing the importance of an excellent primary science education, Louise has led Wellcome Trust's UK wide primary science work since 2013, including a randomised control trial testing the effectiveness of ongoing professional development for primary teachers who had not studied science beyond compulsory requirements. The current focus for Wellcome is a campaign for primary science throughout the UK. This includes Explorify, a totally free digitally based tool that draws on a wealth of research and is designed to support teachers to develop curiosity, critical thinking and reasoning skills essential for STEM subjects, and to enjoy teaching and learning science with their pupils.

£50+VAT per person. Colleagues and partners across the region are welcome to attend.
