Helping those who need it most

Our support is available to all, but schools tackling disadvantage need extra help.  ENTHUSE provides enhanced bursaries and tailored support to teachers working in the most challenging schools - ensuring no school, teacher or young person misses out.

Project ENTHUSE is made up of a number of distinct and complementary areas:

  1. ENTHUSE bursary
    ENTHUSE bursaries are available to all state-funded schools and colleges in the UK to help teachers and technicians attend world-class continuing professional development courses offered by the National STEM Learning Centre and its partners.

  2. ENTHUSE Partnerships
    ENTHUSE Partnerships enable groups of 6-8 schools and colleges to work collaboratively to improving teaching and learning in science. They are open to any state-funded schools or colleges in the UK, from all phases, that want to work together.
