Professional Learning Communities – STEMEC: IET evidence to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Committee


Abstract

In a letter to the IET’s Chief Executive and Secretary, the Chairman of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Committee requested input concerning Professional Learning Committees (PLC).  In response it was stated that a PLC as a cooperative body was only likely to be successful if there was the energy and focus of an exceptional individual who inspired action with a selfless leadership style.  Examples of such leaders, and their successful activities were given; as were professional science and engineering organisations with STEM education activities.
