Secondary Science Teacher CPD Event
Thu 27 April 2017, 16:00 – 17:30 BST
The University of Chichester and Worthing College will be hosting a free Secondary Teacher Networking science event at Worthing College on Thursday 27th April 4.00pm-5.30pm.
The event will include keynote speaker Dr Jonathan Sargent, Senior lecturer in Science Education from the University of Chichester who will be discussing the process of teaching science and how children learn. Learning is a messy process; we know something about successful strategies but we are yet to be confident as to why a particular strategy works for one individual yet may be less successful with others.
Refreshments will be provided.

Jonathan taught in secondary schools in London before moving to West Sussex. He held the position of Head of Physics and Science at a local West Sussex secondary school for 10 years.
He then worked for the West Sussex Advisory Service as director of the Science Education Development Unit and was both contributing author and project director for New Horizons: Science 5-16 published by Cambridge University Press.
His career moved to a large and challenging Brighton comprehensive school where he was Senior Deputy Headteacher for a number of years. Later, he ran the GTP Science Course for the University of Sussex.
