Vision and Recommendations

Posted by on Aug 1, 2011 4:05 pm

Schools and further education colleges are vital to the education supply chain and should provide all learners with routes to higher education and vocational qualifications

The UK improves its world class science and chemistry education at primary and secondary levels.

This will be delivered by:
  • An appropriate evidence-based education policy framework.
  • A chemistry curriculum at primary and secondary level that is supported by appropriate mathematics curriculum and resources
  • A fit-for-purpose assessment system which promotes the development of independent learners, and well equipped schools with inspiring specialist teachers and technicians to provide steady flow of people into chemistry-reliant industries and HEI’s.
To achieve this, the following steps (4.1 -4.5) need to happen.

Talking points
  1. Are the vision and steps 4.1 - 4.5, appropriate?
  2. Do steps 4.1 - 4.5 miss or overlook any important areas?
  3. Who should coordinate the proposed steps 4.1 - 4.5?
  4. How can we ensure that efforts made by schools, further education colleges and HEI’s are joined-up and effective?
  5. Where can cost savings be made, and how should savings be prioritised?
  6. How can we measure our progress and what indicators can be used to measure success?
Please contribute your views on the Chemistry Landscape MyRSC forums, providing evidence, where appropriate.
