We support the teaching of chemistry within the primary, secondary and post-16 phases. Our resources and materials are sent free to schools and colleges in the UK and Ireland.
We strive to modernise curricula and work closely with the UK government, subject associations, professional bodies and learned societies to ensure a coherent approach to science education.
We encourage initiatives to attract students to the chemical sciences from all parts of society and raise awareness of potential careers. An advisory service and a variety of careers publications for students, parents and teachers are available.
We are the largest non-government provider of INSET (in-service training for teachers) in the UK, providing a range of workshops and residential courses aimed at updating teachers' chemistry knowledge and skills.
We also input into education policy. We respond to numerous consultations and work proactively by commissioning reports which provide hard, fact-driven evidence on current issues and problems.
Education in Chemistry is our bimonthly magazine we produce for teachers and lecturers that includes a pupil supplement aimed at 14 – 18 year olds. This is sent free to secondary schools, colleges and universities throughout the UK and Ireland.
