We promote excellence in science teaching and learning, and offer unique benefits for our members. The ASE's national committees play a pro-active role in science education policy, discussing the new National Curriculum with the DfE and informing headteachers of the value of laboratory technicians and the importance of science in primary schools.Experienced science teachers (primary as well as secondary) can apply to the ASE for Chartered Science Teacher status, CSciTeach, a nationally recognised chartered status for the science teaching profession. We also offer special support to trainee science teachers and NQTs. Publications and resources are also available from the ASE on all aspects of science for schools, including a newly revised Heads of Science handbook and the authoritative guides - 'ASE Guide to Primary Science Education' and 'ASE Guide to Secondary Science Education'. Our website www.schoolscience.co.uk gets over 4 million page views each year and is a must for educators and learners alike as it is packed with free to access science resources, giveaways, competitions and much more.

This practice involves close liaison with local industry and commerce to ensure that Colleges are aware of local needs to enable them to offer appropriate and relevant courses that are attractive to local students, but that also meet national standards as advised by UK Sector Skills Councils.Although these collaborative partnerships are common practice between Colleges and industry, the schemes are less developed within schools."UpdFurathetre an do
