The Science Museum Group has opened a new training and education facility as part of its Science Museum Group Academy arm at Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum.

The new hub is the company’s first in the north of England, with the original being operative at the Science Museum in London, and will provide training for teachers to help them boost science engagement and learning outside of the classroom.

At the Academy, teachers will learn techniques and use resources designed to help them engage students with STEM and link it to their everyday lives and experiences.

"Helping more people find meaning and relevance in science is at the heart of the Science Museum Group’s mission to inspire futures," said Susan Raikes, director of learning at the Science Museum Group.

"Each STEM practitioner supported by the Academy will gain the tools to create incredible science engagement opportunities for a much wider audience, helping to address the challenges of low engagement with science across the UK."

The Science Museum Group Academy has plans to spread out to further UK locations beyond London and Manchester and to deliver free of charge STEM training to over 2,500 UK teachers.
