- IOP have produced a massive resource called SPT (supporting physics teachers) for this topic. Much of which is quite dense for the non specialist especially in the 14-16 SPT. It uses some quite unusual terminology that would not be found in many physics texts. There is useful introductory material in the 11-14 SPT for Energy. Lots of practical ideas in both.
