This course, refreshed for Autumn 2022 is specifically targeted and designed for all teachers new or recently new to teaching OCR A-Level Biology. The sessions are designed to improve teachers’ understanding of the OCR specification and ensure their students have the best opportunity to maximise potential grades.
The course will focus on an introduction to and overview of the specification, the key challenges, the standard, the transition from GCSE to A-Level, and provide all teachers with a range of effective teaching approaches, ideas and techniques, as well as key guidance in how to develop with advice on the exam, standards and best ways to prepare students.
Emphasis will also be on practical strategies on how to get the most from practical work and how to successfully build in the maths skills into your lessons.
This course, tailored to suit, can be delivered in your school. Discuss this further with our CPD team on 01625 532974 or click below to make an enquiry.
