The fee for this for maintained schools is £185 and an RCUK bursary is available to cover £165 of the course cost. This means that for only £20 participants will have an opportunity to learn from leading scientists involved in cutting-edge research and to develop their knowledge and skills in an authentic context.
We expect this to be extremely popular so please book your places now to avoid any disappointment:
There is widespread concern about the impact of obesity on health and lifespan, as well as concern about the implications of an ageing population. This course explores the impact that lifestyle, physiology and genetics have on our size, quality and length of life. It looks at the relationship between genes, the brain and metabolic state and the role of the cardiovascular and the autonomic nervous systems both during and in recovery from exercise.
You will also be coached on how to bring this cutting edge science into the classroom to deliver stimulating and inspiring lessons with the emphasis on practical activities.
Presenting will be two RCUK researchers from the University of Essex (Dr Valerie Gladwell, Director and Senior Lecturer in Sports & Exercise Science and Dr Carly Wood, Research Officer in the School of Biological Sciences) and a teacher presenter with a Masters Degree in Sports Science (James Knight from Ockendon Academy).
