Mathematics and Science Learning Centre

The Mathematics and Science Learning Centre at University of Southampton provides opportunities for teachers, lecturers and support staff throughout their career.  The Centre supports educators in identifying and implementing teaching and learning approaches based on the very best education research, evidence-based approaches and classroom practice.  We work in partnership with schools and colleges across the South of England to harness best practice and enhance impact on students’ learning.

The Centre works closely with the Mathematics, Science and Health Education (MSHE) Research Centre to translate the world class research in Southampton Education School to strategies that can be used in schools and colleges.

Southampton Education School hosts the Mathematics and Science Learning Centre in a purpose built facility on the Highfield Campus.  A small dedicated team co-ordinate the activities of the Centre and are willing to help you in identifying support to match your needs.

The Centre offers a range of flexible support from scheduled professional development, action research programmes with the option to link to Masters-level qualifications, Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) in mathematics, physics and computing, funded projects and bespoke, personalised support. The Centre runs professional development courses, conferences and networks for Primary, Secondary and Post-16 teachers.

You can connect with the MSLC on Facebook, Twitter or by joining their mailing list. Email the Centre ( for more information on design and delivery of our bespoke professional development, which can be delivered to whole departments or clusters of schools.

The Centre hosts the secondary science PGCE programme, physics, SKE and laboratory sessions for primary science. During June and July it also hosts the Computer Science SKE that prepares applicants for the PGCE
IT&CS and the School Direct programme.

We support outreach activity for the University and host a range of events.
