The Scottish Schools Education Research Centre, in partnership with the Scottish Teacher Education Institutes (TEIs), has for many years delivered a residential professional development event - The Scottish Universities Science School (SUSS) for secondary science PGCE students and graduating science/education students across Scotland. We hope that SUSS is the start of a career long association with newly qualified teachers. During the probationer year which follows, we offer additional opportunities to further consolidate subject knowledge and pedagogical skills. In this session we will share the aims and structure of SUSS and reflect on feedback from participants and TEI tutors. Our evidence suggests that SUSS improves student teacher subject knowledge, confidence and motivation. We will also explore the potential for roll-out of the SUSS model to other subject areas.
