Teacher Education Programmes


ESTABLISH Teaching and Learning Units serves as exemplary materials for Science Teachers and Instructors of Teacher Professional Development Programmes to experience benefits of Inquiry Based Science Education approach. The Units focus on particular scientific topics, explore pedagogy, industrial contexts, applications, and offer ready-to-go students learning activities for use in the classroom.


To support teachers across Europe, ESTABLISH has designed a number of educational programmes to introduce and develop certain teaching skills useful for teaching by inquiry.

About the project

The ESTABLISH consortium of over 60 partners from 11 European countries will work together on this four year project to encourage and promote the more widespread use of Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) in second level schools. Members of the consortium will be working with local teachers and students to develop and implement IBSE units and evaluation tools that are culturally adapted for each country.
