EU SECURE Project important for MST Education in England?


The journey from policy to practice is long, complex and often tortuous. Yet the SECURE project (see http://www.secure-project.eu/) has grasped the nettle of doing research and making recommendations to support this journey for mathematics, science and technology (MST) education. Researchers across 10 EU countries, including England, have gathered data to identify desirable practice in MST education for pupils aged 5 – 13 years and its relationship to policy, compared this with existing/prevailing practice and policy, challenged existing/prevailing practice and policy and developed recommendations that are designed to lead to different more desirable practice and policy. The report is due to be published this autumn.

It’s definitely a report to watch out for. It looks as though there will be recommendations concerning approaches to teaching and learning and CPD as well as guidance to politicians as to policy making that will support MST education.
