STEM Learning has a network of 28 school-led Science Learning Partnerships across England that provide high-quality, responsive, subject-specific science CPD which build local expertise in science teaching at all levels.

We are your local Norfolk and Suffolk SLP Team, providing teacher learning and support throughout the counties.

As well as face-to-face and remote CPD courses we can provide a free ‘Needs Analysis’ for your school.

Helping to fill the gaps where additional STEM knowledge is required. This can be completed either in your school or over Teams/Zoom and is at no cost. Just contact us at norfolksuffolkslp2022@gmail.com

Our aim is to provide high quality training at affordable costs as we know that everyone is feeling the cost-of-living squeeze, but this shouldn’t put-off schools from wanting to enhance their STEM.
