  • Why choose this qualification?

    The objective of the qualification is to provide practitioners in primary schools with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop and lead STEM teaching and learning in their setting.

    Embedding STEM in teaching and learning within primary schools is gathering momentum as a successful way of raising standards, yet there is no national qualification for learners to aspire to or for recruiters to seek from potential employees.

    The Level 3 Certificate in Developing and Managing STEM in Primary Schools qualification covers the core competencies needed by a primary school practitioner leading on STEM, along with the underpinning knowledge and understanding. Learners will develop an understanding of what constitutes a STEM approach to learning and how this benefits primary schools and their pupils. They will learn the skills needed to lead on STEM, how to manage and develop staff and resources, set STEM quality improvement targets and goals and introduce STEM enrichment activities.

    This qualification enables learners to gain expertise in developing and managing a specific aspect of the primary curriculum. It may provide a useful stepping stone to middle management positions within primary schools or academy chains.
