The IOP's education projects have all been based around coaching individual teachers within departments. This has followed a model of instructional coaching that focuses on pedagogical curriculum knowledge of science teachers, alongside building their confidence in the physics classroom. For recent physics graduates, this often means building a bridge between their academic knowledge and the starting points of their students. It can be easy for them to underestimate the perceived gap between everyday experience and the seemingly abstract scientific curriculum. We will share our experiences and suggest approaches which can provide a platform for individual departments. As well as highlighting physics pedagogy resources, participants will apply these to running CPD sessions at a school or local level. Activities will include introductions of some popular coaching models that support colleagues as reflective practitioners, examining the benefits for teachers at all stages of their careers.
