Amgen Teach aims to deepen student interest and achievement in Science by strengthening the ability of life science secondary school teachers to use inquiry-based teaching strategies in the classroom. Amgen Teach uses training workshops and distance learning events to provide educators with the skills and confidence necessary to transform the student experience in learning Science.

We would like to invite you to participate in the European Amgen Teach initiative. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in a series of professional development workshops for the Sciences.  These workshops offer teachers upskilling in areas that are in line with new developments in Science education in Ireland.
