The University of Manchester's SEERIH was founded in 2014 and is a specialist hub for the development of science and engineering education, engaging teachers with innovative, research-led teaching and learning practice through partnership-invigorated programmes of continuous professional development (CPD) targeted at achieving quality outcomes for learners.
With a programme of continued professional development targeted to support in-service teachers from primary and secondary school, with the engagement of University academics, undergraduate and postgraduate students, SEERIH positively influences the experience and learning outcomes of teachers and young people in science and engineering.
SEERIH’s national reputation draws on expertise and experience in teacher continuous professional development programmes, innovative curriculum development projects and applied research in primary science and associated STEM disciplines. Priding itself in partnership work practices, SEERIH draws interest and association with STEM education, business and cultural organisations.
