Teach, Research and Make a Difference with Researchers in Schools

Monday 9 April 15:00 until 16:00
Careers and Employability Centre, The Library

The Researchers in Schools programme is the world’s only fully-salaried route into teaching tailored exclusively to PhD researchers. We look for candidates with a desire to improve the educational prospects of pupils across the country and outstanding interpersonal skills to train to become classroom teachers. As a subject leader within your school, you’ll help support pupils, regardless of background, to excel and progress to higher education.

At our presentation you’ll hear about how our programme is specifically designed for doctoral researchers as well as the many unique benefits the programme can offer you, including:

•The salary and salary uplift scheme, supported by the Department for Education

•The structured fully-funded teacher training

•One day per week of protected time to focus on improving outcomes for pupils from under-represented backgrounds, promoting university access and research

•The honorary academic status awarded from a research-intensive university

Open to: PhD students
