The Royal Society of Chemistry is the UK’s largest non-governmental funder of chemistry education. And, as the world’s leading chemistry community, is committed to advancing excellence in the chemical sciences because of its belief in the fundamental importance of chemistry for life, society and the world.
If you’re passionate about chemistry and inspiring the next generation then we would love to help you on your way to becoming an inspirational chemistry teacher. One way that we are doing that is awarding £28,000 tax-free funding to talented individuals entering chemistry teacher training in England.
As well as £28,000 tax-free funding, Royal Society of Chemistry Scholars get a specialised support package, designed to help them during the ITT course.
The package includes:
• Mentoring by an expert chemistry teacher
• Free classroom materials including books, posters and a lab coat
• Chemistry specific training meetings with other scholars, and
• Free online courses on key concepts in teaching chemistry.
• Two year’s membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry, which includes arrange of further benefits
In addition to all of the above, any chemistry teacher starting Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in 2020/21 will receive three early-career payments of £2,000 each (or £3,000 each, if teaching in local authority areas identified as having high need for teachers) in their second, third and fourth years of teaching.
