Curriculum development

Advice and guidance for science education content developers

Genomics is now featured in the GCSE and A-level biology curricula. We provide scientific advice and access to scientists for curriculum developers and textbook writers developing educational materials on genomics.

Working in collaboration with education researchers at the University of York Science Education Group we are investigating how genomics is currently being taught in school and establishing whether there is a need for genomics to be introduced earlier in science education. The study is also reviewing the current provision of genomics-themed teaching resources and identifying where there is a need for new, engaging resources.The full study will be available later in the year.
