Testimonials 

"To the lovely SPA Science team: thank you very much for giving me the great opportunity to work with you and your students on the Academic Mentoring programme! Your help, knowledge and support has been truly appreciated, and has given me the confidence to come back to teaching after a 7-year break. The experience of teaching key concepts in Science to small mentoring groups has felt like having a 'second go' at teacher training for me, and the students were a complete joy to teach :-). I've loved working with you this year - you and the whole science department are a credit to your school and your community"
