Support our manifesto for change

The IOP has launched a new manifesto for change across the UK and Ireland, outlining how we want schools and nurseries to be more inclusive and encourage more young people to choose to study physics - and we need you and your school to show your support.

We need to show policymakers the appetite for change in the education community. We believe there needs to be a transformation in our nurseries and schools. Our governments and senior leaders in schools must take the lead to make this change happen. So we have developed a manifesto for change, included with this issue of Classroom Physics. It calls for ten areas of improvement that can help make physics, and nurseries and schools in general, more inclusive.

We are calling on teachers, schools, colleges and nurseries to pledge their support by adding their names to our call to our leaders to make the Limit Less manifesto a reality.

Stereotypes and limited expectations hold young people back, not only in physics but across all subjects, and misconceived ideas about physics create even more barriers.

Our Limit Less campaign is looking to challenge this, and ensure all young people have the same opportunities to change the world.

Teachers are one of the main influencers of young people and we know that your work is crucial to encourage more young people from underrepresented groups to study physics in school and consider a career using physics.

The Limit Less campaign has already run a series of careers events, collaborated with YouTube Learning and started conversations with parliamentarians about this manifesto. Your voice will help us challenge the government to make this Limit Less dream a reality.
