The PROFILES project promotes IBSE through raising the self-efficacy of science teachers and in so doing aiding a better
understanding of the changing purpose of teaching science in schools and the value of stakeholder networking. The proposal
innovation is in utilizing existing science teaching materials to support teachers, through an inspired, longitudinal training
programme reflecting stakeholder views and needs, while simultaneously promoting a reflective IBSE school-based, training
related, intervention to promote learning through creative, scientific problem solving and socio-scientific decision making
procedures. The measures of success are through a) determining the self efficacy of science teachers in teaching innovative
science education approaches allowing student acquisition of life skill competencies and b) in the attitudes of students toward
this more context-led, student centered, IBSE-emphasised learning. Dissemination of approaches, reactions, and reflections
form a further key project target.
