Step Up seeks to transform the nature and delivery of

mathematics and science pre-service teacher education in Queensland.


We need to look at how science is taught … We need to support our science teachers to be confident in their knowledge of their subjects and able to teach science (or teach about science) in a manner that reflects how science is practised – an enquiry-based, sceptical approach that is always looking for better evidence. Inspiring teachers will be those who know their subject well, and can transmit that confidence, and their passion, into the classroom.
