KEEP Teaching trial: register to help shape the future of physics teaching

We are inviting heads of science and trainee teachers to register their interest in a national trial.

We want to build the evidence for an intervention to encourage early-career physics teachers to remain in teaching.

Complete our short survey to register your interest and learn more.


Register your interest in our national KEEP Teaching trial

We will look at how to reduce workload at the start of a teaching career so newly qualified teachers can focus on their profession.

Join our trial to encourage physics teachers to stay and help to give all students access to physics.

Register your interest if you are:

  • a head of science or a science teacher in a non-selective state school in England recruiting a newly qualified teacher
  • a trainee teacher and physics specialist
  • able to commit 3-14 hours to the trial over one year
  • available for trials starting in September 2020 or September 2021

Thank you for your interest in KEEP Teaching.

We think there’s a way to improve physics teacher retention.

Register your interest to be part of our research trial and help us find out if we’re right.
