Continuing Professional Development

Our range of support for teachers, technicians and curriculum developers

We offer continuing professional development (CPD) for hundreds of teachers annually, helping the profession to keep up with latest developments in the fast-paced world of genetics and genomics.

Working with partners such as the National Science Learning Centre, the Prince’s Teaching Institute and the Babraham Institute we host a range of courses, twilights, practice sharing events and conference sessions designed to upskill teachers on genomics science and build confidence.

Bioscience Lite – Twilight Teacher CPD

Bioscience LITE is a series of free twilight teacher training events hosted by the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Babraham Institute to explore some of the big topics in bioscience. These sessions will provide you with updates from scientists on contemporary bioscience, access to some of our scientific facilities and introduce you to resources that can be used in the classroom.

Videos from previous Bioscience Lite events focusing on Stem cells, the use of animals in research, gene editing technology and DNA sequencing can be viewed here.

Bespoke training days

We also provide bespoke teacher training days on campus for groups of 10 or more, which can be tailored to the specific requirements of the group. Contact us to find out more.
