Bursary support available
ENTHUSE Awards are provided by Project ENTHUSE which is a unique partnership of government, charities and employers that have come together to bring about inspired STEM teaching through the professional development of teachers, technicians and support staff across the UK.
ENTHUSE Awards contribute towards the costs of attending world-class professional development provided by the National STEM Learning Centre for all UK state funded schools and colleges. All eligible schools are able to apply and will receive the Award on completion of CPD activities.
Thanks to funding from Research Councils UK, all CPD which is part of the Bringing Cutting Edge Research into the Classroom programme qualifies for a bursary. State funded schools, colleges and universities in the UK can benefit from this funding for teachers, technicians and those on Initial Teacher Training (ITT).
ESERO-UK offers bursaries for a selection of its conferences and CPD activities to support all teachers, from state funded and fee paying schools across the UK.
Intensive ENTHUSE Award
Intensive ENTHUSE Awards of up to £5,000 are available to schools and colleges that have not previously engaged with the National STEM Learning Centre for support in professional development.
The aim of this Award is to help schools to raise pupil achievement in science through science-specific CPD for teachers of science and associated and support staff.
Applications are now closed. If you would like to be made aware of the next time applications are open, please sign up to our monthly eNewletter.
The ENTHUSE Partnership Award is a grant of £12,000 for groups of between four and eight schools and/or colleges located in England, wishing to work together to address local issues of underachievement in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM) subjects. The ENTHUSE Partnership Award aims to support collaborative activities over two years to develop and strengthen local partnerships which can subsequently continue independently.
We are inviting expressions of interest in the first instance. Shortlisted applications will then be required to submit a more detailed action plan. Please note that applications will be assessed on merit initially but then other factors such as geographical spread may be taken into consideration when making the final selection.
