To support teachers across Europe in adopting inquiry based approaches in their classroom practice, ESTABLISH has developed a structured programme for teacher education to introduce and develop certain teaching skills or “elements” useful for teaching by inquiry. This resource is designed as a self-instructive programme for second level science teachers, at both pre-service and in-service levels.

The programme consists of four core elements and four supporting elements selected to guide you from a basic understanding of inquiry, through to developing and implementing your own inquiry-based materials in the classroom.

Each element has a number of key learning objectives and presents information designed for teachers together with exemplary workshop activities so that they may achieve the learning objectives of the programme.
