Research-2-Practice is a Wellcome Trust funded research project that is a collaboration between the University of Lincoln, Roehampton University, York St John University and Kyra Research School. The project works with, and is guided by, expert teachers to develop packages of evidence-informed science teaching materials for use with both primary and secondary school mentors and trainee teachers. Instead of imposing change on classroom practitioners, it capitalises on the existing teacher training mentor/trainee professional relationship and adopts a tried and tested model of instructional coaching that will support trainee teachers in becoming evidence-informed science teachers. The project is nearing completion (autumn 2021) and the resources will then be made freely available online.
