Our Work & Model

Our Work and Model

Our highly skilled and dedicated educationists play a big role in guiding science teachers and education administrators to arrange, plan and implement easy science teaching by equipping them with the relevant skills and knowledge. These skills and knowledge it is envisioned would help USEP promote Quality Science Education for the 21st century skills. Throughout the process, the following tenets of science teaching and learning are maintained:-

    Learning and innovation
    Digital literacy
    Building a career in science subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Biology Mathematics and ICT)
    Responding to cross-cutting issues - ICT, gender equality, ethnic equity, and result orientation.

USEP carries out a number of activities to help it achieve the intended impact and desired change in science teaching and learning.

Teacher Mentorship Programme (TMP)

This is part of the teacher development of teachers. The TMP looks into the strengthening of the Quality and Standards of the teaching and learning of sciences. Orientation and training programmes are arranged and carried out for the teachers in the targeted school. The TMP is done through trainings facilitated by senior skilled and knowledgeable educationists. Teachers are trained on various teaching methods and use of ICT in classrooms. Find out more

Training of Laboratory Assistants

   USEP realises that part of making science teaching and learning easy is by strengthening the enabling environment which includes laboratory use. The laboratory assistant are trained on how to run an adequately stocked laboratory for effective easy science teaching. Earlier on in the programme, some laboratories were stocked and equipped.

Science Fairs

This is part of the programme which promotes science and innovation among the students. This is important because this is the part where students practice and test ideas on application of science in day to day life. This experiential learning methodology gives students the opportunity to showcase their inventions and demonstrate hands-on acquired science knowledge and skills. Find out more

Academic Progress Scorecard (APS)

The APS is a series of tools designed to be used by schools to evaluate the science teaching at the school. The APS helps in data collection and report generation in order to come record and report progress so that the school administrators use that information to plan and improve science teaching and learning in their schools. The APS helps improve school’s planning capacity and management of progress through school self-assessment.  Find out more

Other supporting activities include student motivational talks, support supervision in classrooms and laboratories, annual review meetings with supported schools and provision of materials and resources to teachers and administrators to facilitate the science teaching and learning.

 

USEP’s activities and desired change to have:

Functional training and professional development of science teachers, laboratory staff and School administrators (Academic Managers) to positively improve the teaching and learning of science.
    Holistic approach to foster increased awareness and action towards improving the teaching and learning of sciences.  
    ICT integration in the teaching and learning processes to make science easier to demonstrate, explain and understand with teaching aids.
    Increased accountability of schools to the School Management structures and other Stakeholders in the teaching and learning process.
    Improved learner-centred interventions to improve the quality of teaching and learning of science.
    Effective engagement of Government, partners and stakeholders in improving the learning process for students.
