What is Developing Experts?

Developing Experts is a complete science curriculum programme for children aged 4 to 16 years and functions as a careers platform for the whole family. With a complete set of interactive and chronological lessons, it is the ideal platform for teaching science in the classroom and consolidating revision or extra learning at home.

It provides a growing library of over 1000 online lessons, with practical investigations, handouts and assessment quizzes included. All resources are fully mapped against the National Curriculum, with scientific skills and learning outcomes clearly outlined in each lesson. With differentiated resources, teachers are able to provide their class with a wide range of tasks and track their students' progress.

As a science provider, DE has a sustained focus on a green future and aims to meet the targets set out in the DfE's sustainability and climate change policy; namely, that pupils should be educated on climate change through 'knowledge-rich education' which should in turn be translated into 'positive action and solutions'. By targeting primary-aged pupils, DE also seeks to promote diversity and inclusion in STEM by encouraging women, ethnic minorities and students from a socio-economically disadvantaged background to pursue science as a career pathway.

A focus on career links and future employment opportunities is a core outcome of the platform. Lessons come with expert and career videos, allowing students to see the application of knowledge and scientific skills in the workplace. Illustrating careers and knowledge in this way increases teachers' confidence and allows their students' potential to flourish.

Recommended Usage

Each lesson in the curriculum is designed to be flexible and can be modified to suit an individual teacher's schedule, with a rough completion time of around 1 hour. Since the units are build upon prior knowledge and tasks are often ongoing, we recommend that users should engage with Developing Experts for at least 3/4 weeks to experience the full benefits of the platform.

Both my Year 4 class and I love Developing Experts and we would all highly recommend as a great resource with some great mission assignments.

Gemma found Developing Experts Science:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The impact on attainment in my class is that they are discussing and applying their learning outside of the classroom including at home with parents and carers. Developing Experts allows them to relate science to the world around them, making their learning engaging and real.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Developing Experts is now the first resource I go to when planning and delivering science lessons. The quality of resources available saves me hours of planning!
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    I use Developing Experts as a tool to improve my own subject knowledge prior to lesson delivery. As an NQT, Developing Experts has allowed me to deliver science more confidently and in a fun and engaging way.
