For a young person to study physics is to place within their hand a key to unlock the mysterious of the universe and the mechanisms that make everything work. When studying physics, students make realisations about phenomena they had taken for granted and learn about things they had never even considered.

Whether you are guiding students through the well-established world of classical physics, where students get to grips with the intricacies of forces and motion and the nature and behaviour of waves, to the more cutting-edge side of the subject where students begin to understand the accelerating expansion of the universe and the discoveries yet to be made in the realms of quantum physics, you are their guide and hold the keys to help young people unlock the doors of the universe and reality itself.

The physics subject sessions will give you a deep understanding of how and why the physics is delivered: we call this the subject pedagogy. We will explore how we can use practical investigation to guide student learning, where student misconceptions often arise and how to make lessons challenging, engaging and inspiring. You will learn how to support the delivery of mathematics in physics, as well as how to plan a sequence of learning across a whole topic. We also go beyond the curriculum with guest speakers and support from the Institute of Physics and National Science and Media Museum.
