Teacher Professional Development Matters

Provides high quality professional development


The European STEM PD Centre Network’s overall aim is providing a platform for knowledge exchange among its participants. Through each of its members the network aims to substantially improve STEM education as it happens on a day-to-day basis in schools, by investing in teacher professional development (PD). 

Supporting STEM teaching through PD practice


High quality STEM teacher professional development supports STEM teaching through intensifying partnerships with and among PD practice.
