IOP DOMAINS PHYSICS CPD Programme
Teaching Guidance for 11-14 14-16 16-19
DOMAINS CPD Programme
The DOMAINS programme covers all of the domains (of IOPSpark) over the course of an academic year.
In each school term, we cover two 'cycles' of our programme, with each cycle focusing on one key area of physics.
To support key groups of teachers, each cycle dedicates a week to each of the following:
- All teachers – a series of short videos will address the main issues within each topic; videos will be tagged by age group of student.
- Early career teachers – live, interactive sessions run by our local coaching teams, supporting trainees/student teachers, NQTs/probationers and others in the early years of their teaching career.
- More experienced teachers – live, interactive sessions run by our local coaching teams, supporting teachers; look out for sessions tailored to your situation.
- Coaches and CPD leaders – live, interactive sessions run by our professional practice group; anyone supporting the professional development (or professional learning) of teachers of physics is welcome to join our professional community.
To encourage best practice, each cycle includes a 'reflection week'.
The table below provides an outline schedule of the DOMAINS Programme and provides links to the presession suggested companion videos – links will appear when the video content is available.
