IOP South Regional Teacher Day
Join us for a full day of Physics teacher CPD workshops provided by Institute of Physics coaches – whether you’re a physics specialist or not. All teachers of physics, NQTs, technicians and trainees are welcome.
There is no charge to attend – the conference is very generously hosted by Charterhouse School, in Godalming, Surrey and offers the opportunity to take part in a number of different workshops over the day.
Lunch and refreshments provided.
