What is Primary Engineer?
The aim of Primary Engineer is to develop the skills and confidence in teachers first and then extend from this secure foundation. The programmes are whole-class focused, including learners of all abilities. Two members of staff attend a practical training day.
Throughout the process we aim to link engineers to the school so that they can help and advise, becoming the pupil’s classroom engineer. We will offer an engineer a free training place alongside the teachers, if they commit to working with the school. This engineer can be part of the schools wider ‘family’, at the invitation of the school.
Events are held to celebrate the pupils’ (and teachers’) work and are great opportunities to embark on a little ‘industrial espionage’ with other schools for the following year.
Primary Engineer offers a range of courses, all mapped to the curriculum, and with access to a virtual learning environment full of teaching resources. For a full list of courses and content, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
