The course comprises a range of presentations, discussions and practical workshops where exemplar material can be selected from chemistry contexts. Students have many opportunities both individually and in group work to apply general principles to specific science learning opportunities in science and in chemistry. There are also breakout sessions where students work both in mixed groups and with other chemistry specialists. Outside specialists are also invited to deliver sessions that cover topics in teaching chemistry at KS4, so that for part of the course students work in parallel in their specialist subject area. The chemistry specialism is also reflected in the required reading for the course.
