The move to the new content-heavy specifications requires teachers to develop effective strategies to help students recall a huge amount of content. This workshop will help you to move away from last minute revision strategies to supporting your students across the GCSE. You will identify current strengths, and opportunities for change, both in the long and short-term. You will also consider the implications of current research into what helps students be more successful.
You will be able to:
· Recognise the opportunities of change and identify actions that will have the highest impact
· Identify ways of strengthening retention of subject knowledge, and examination technique
· Strategies to use in the long term and short term to help students learn for exams

Working scientifically is a very significant component of the new science GCSE's examinations. This course will give delegates the opportunity to consider how to deliver the core practicals effectively and how best to develop their students understanding of working scientifically so that they can perform well in the examinations but also find science a more engaging and stimulating experience throughout.
You will be able to:
· Reflect on the challenges of teaching the new GCSE Specifications, especially in the regard of teaching the high prior attaining students
· Consider how best to develop the skills students will need in order to perform at the higher grades
· Plan actions to enhance the delivery of the new course to ensure good student progress
