Primary Science Subject Leaders – Termly Networks and Conference

We are delighted to share details of the Telford & Wrekin Primary Science Subject Leader package for 2023/24, which we are offering in conjunction with North Midlands Science Learning Partnership.  There are two parts to the offer:

Eligible maintained schools will receive a 70% Teacher Release Payment back from the delegate fee for both the networks and the conference which makes the package extremely good value for money for schools.  On booking the school will be invoiced for £120 by STEM Learning and the TRP subsidy of 70% (£84) is released to the school on completion of the first session by STEM Learning, taking the net cost for all 3 meetings to just £36, same for the conference.  We are really sorry that it is such a complicated system, this is required by the funders but we felt the return for schools is definitely worth it.

Full details of dates and booking is available by clicking the above links, and for any queries relating to booking or funding please contact
