You might have heard about the RSC Teacher Training Scholarships
. We’re offering a £25,000 tax-free bursary, and a great support package, to people with the potential to become exceptional chemistry teachers. If you, or someone you know, are starting a teacher training course in September, you can still apply for a scholarship until Sunday 27th July.
Everything you need to know about applying for a scholarship can be found on our website
. We’re looking for people who will be great chemistry teachers
, and also great ambassadors for the RSC. That means we want people with excellent chemistry knowledge
, who are committed to teaching
and who have the personal attributes
to be a good classroom teacher. We do have some criteria
that applicants must meet, so make sure you’re eligible before you apply.
The application process is straightforward: fill in an application form
online, telling us about your background and why you’d make a great chemistry teacher. We’ll invite the best candidates to attend an assessment day
on Friday 15th August
in London. Watch this video
to find out more about the process.
Supporting our scholars
Our scholars get lots of support
throughout the year, as well as lots of RSC goodies
to start them off. They have an expert teacher mentor
who arranges meetings throughout the year, and have the chance to attend a bespoke Continuing Professional Development course,
designed especially for our scholars. They also get free RSC membership
for two years.
Our first group of scholars are coming to the end of their training courses now, and finding jobs up and down the country. Congratulations to all of them, and we’re looking forward to welcoming our new scholars later in the year!
