As the course continues, time is spent alternating between University and school, with increasing time being spent in school as experience develops. The course has an emphasis on practical work, literacy and communication, science for all and digital technologies in line with the interests of the research'active science tutors who are experienced schoolteachers and have published widely in national and international journals.
