Education Catalysts

YSC-Logo-1We have a new and exciting opportunity for teachers to collaborate with the University of Central Lancashire as our first cohort of Education Catalysts. The role will involve shaping and developing a programme of interactive science learning available to young learners across the North West.

Education Catalysts will be working as part of the team at the UCLan and Ri Young Scientist Centre, Preston. The Young Scientist Centre (YSC) is a collaboration between the University of Central Lancashire and the Royal Institution of Great Britain. The Centre offers interactive and engaging workshops covering all areas of STEM with the aim to inspire and raise aspirations of young people aged between 7-18 years. We are looking to expand the reach and impact of the Centre through development of a network of Education Catalysts, who will advise, inform and shape content, to be delivered by the YSC team.

We are looking to appoint a number of Secondary and Post-16 teachers to work with the YSC between July-September in order to develop:

– Classroom resources that link to YSC workshop content, research taking place at the University and the curriculum.

– CPD for primary school teachers to aid primary science teaching.

The role will be flexible and there will be an opportunity to work remotely. There may also be scope for continuing the role into the 2016-17 academic year through delivery of the CPD developed during the summer.
