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 £29,000 tax-free funding to talented individuals entering chemistry teacher training in England.

Teaching is an exciting, challenging and hugely rewarding career. No two days will ever be the same, but every day you’ll be sharing your passion for science and making a real difference to children and young people.

Hear from our scholars, mentors and our team

Chemistry is at the centre of everything you can see, smell, touch and taste. The Royal Society of Chemistry is a catalyst for the chemistry that changes our world. We’re committed to helping develop the next generation of chemists, whose discoveries and innovations will enrich our future.

It won’t always be easy, your patience and determination will both be tested, but if you become one of our scholars then we will support you through your training and beyond, with a range of fantastic benefits, as you grow into the excellent teacher we believe you can become.

We are offering up to 150 Teacher Training Scholarships to the very best graduates entering chemistry teacher training in September 2023.

In addition to £29,000 tax-free funding from the Department of Education each of our scholars also receives:

  • chemistry specific training meetings with other scholars
  • free classroom materials including books, posters and a lab coat
  • free online courses on key concepts in teaching chemistry
  • opportunities to engage with the Royal Society of Chemistry beyond the scholarship year

  • access to Talk Chemistry, our online forum for teachers to share lesson plans, innovative resources and teaching ideas
  • access to national and regional networks for chemistry teachers and trainee teachers
  • up to a third off books from top scientific publishers
