Teacher Training Scholarship

"It is so rewarding to see a student taking an interest in a subject that you yourself have always enjoyed."

Working with children is always great; it is so rewarding to see a student taking an interest in a subject that you yourself have always enjoyed. In particular I love the moments when you tell the class an interesting fact or an anecdote and then get a flood of questions about it, it is that curiosity that I think is so important within Physics and so it’s always amazing when you see it in the classroom.

The IOP Teacher Training Scholarship has such a wide range of support on offer in lots of different ways, from the masterclass days which I am currently signed up to attend and am very excited for, to your personal contact at the IOP. When completing my essay for the university part of my training year I was able to contact the IOP for guidance on aspects of it which was really helpful! I get emails every month about CPD opportunities or other events going on in my area and it really helps me to feel connected not only to other teachers but just to the subject in general.
