Course Description

Teachers must be knowledgeable in their subject matter to teach primary science. However, many primary teachers don't have science expertise. This course will teach you the essential knowledge necessary to teach the chemistry components of the primary science curriculum. It will help you identify common misconceptions and misunderstandings that children might have, and how to help them overcome them. There are practical activities you can do with primary school students to help them learn scientific concepts in an engaging and fun way.

CPD Certification Service was founded in 1996. It is the most independent CPD accreditation agency that operates across all industry sectors.
