Supporting early learning in STEM

A new science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning resource has been launched for Early learning and childcare (ELC).

Developed in partnership with the University of the West of Scotland, the learning package provides multimedia resources and activities for staff to help young learners explore the world around them.

This learning resource is the first in a range of free continuous professional learning modules being developed to increase the quality of early learning and childcare services.

The free STEM learning resource is available on the Training modules for all early learning and childcare practitioners page of the Scottish Government website.

The module covers STEM, outdoor learning and improving gender balance and equalities. Further links can also be found on Education Scotland’s National Improvement Hub.

Look out for more online learning modules becoming available.
