"I love to teach science because it gives the students the chance to learn about the world around them from a Physical, Chemical and Biological view whilst applying two key skills, problem solving and critical thinking. The awe and wonder it can bring, coupled with the range of theory and practical skills within each lesson mean that no two lessons are the same! Being able to catch a child’s imagination within lessons makes teaching science amazing!"

Simon Harvey, Science Teacher Weydon School

Why train to be an Physics teacher?

Training to be a science teacher offers a unique and fulfilling career path that combines the excitement of scientific discovery with the joy of inspiring young minds. As a physics teacher, you have the opportunity to demystify complex concepts, fostering students' curiosity and critical thinking skills. By guiding students through the principles of physics, you help them understand the fundamental laws that govern our universe, preparing them for future careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Teaching physics allows you to make a lasting impact, encouraging students to explore, innovate, and solve real-world problems, ultimately contributing to technological advancements and scientific progress.

How will i2i train you to become a Physics teacher?

Explore. Inspire. Challenge.

Our inspiring Science programme will prepare you to teach all science subjects for Key Stage 3 in addition to your speciality science subject for Key Stage 4 & 5 where applicable. You will be mentored and taught by highly enthusiastic and experienced teachers, encouraging and supporting you to apply your scientific knowledge and expertise to create inspiring and engaging lessons.

In addition to weekly Professional Study Sessions, trainees will have seven Science Subject Studies days with our experienced Science Subject Tutor.  You will have the opportunity to explore and evaluate different scientific ideas and theories in order to develop links between theory, research and practice. You will learn how to make the scientific concepts accessible, inclusive and meaningful for all students.  Each session sends you away with a clear task that allows you to put your new learning into practice, which is then shared and discussed in the following session. 

Every day as an Science trainee offers a new opportunity to inspire and be inspired.
