We are delighted to announce that registrations for the 2020 Polymer Study Tours are now open.  Following the success of the new two-day format last year we we be running three courses this year as follows:

  • Edinburgh Napier University, 07 and 08 June
  • Lancashire Tour at Victrex, 28 and 29 June
  • Warwickshire Tour at WHS Plastics, 25 and 26 September

The courses have been designed to link closely to the 11-19 Design and Technology curriculum in order improve the subject knowledge of teachers with regards to polymers and the plastics industry.  They feature lectures, discussions, practical activites and industry tours in order to bring polymers to life and provide interesting contexts for teaching.

The courses are free to attend and all delegates are able to apply for a contribution towards travel or supply cover expenses up to £250.

The Steering Committee, comprised of the Worshipful Company of Horners, the British Plastics Federation and IOM3, would like to thank the UK Polymer industry for their support in sponsoring the Tours.
