Working in a collaborative group we can achieve much more than working in isolation. Clusters provide the opportunity and environment to develop primary teaching, benefit our schools and have a positive impact in the classroom.
In any school there may be changes to teaching staff on a range of timescales and the Trust recognises that some of these changes may mean that good teachers of science may leave. Therefore, the Trust encourages schools to join up into clusters so that they can support one another in their development of science teaching and have more resilience to change of circumstances in any one school.
We are currently supporting and providing funding to 29 PSTT Clusters in different areas of the U.K. All of these PSTT Clusters are built around a PSTT College Fellow and, at present, the Cluster Programme is only open to applications from teachers who are College Fellows. Additionally, in Scotland, we support collaborative networks through our partnership with SSERC.
The PSTT offers advice and provides non-financial support to those running or wishing to build their own clusters.
