Bath Spa Teacher Thank You Scholarship


Giving back to the teaching profession

Monday, 12 March, 2018

Bath Spa University’s Institute for Education (IfE) is providing trainee teachers who start studying at the University this September a £500 thank you scholarship for choosing to become a teacher.

Professor Kate Reynolds, Executive Dean of the Institute for Education, said: “We are all too aware of the difficulties faced by schools and the challenges in recruiting newly qualified teachers. This scholarship is a chance to celebrate those who have chosen to join that most wonderful profession – being a teacher.

“We have launched this new 'Bath Spa Teacher Thank You Scholarship' as a way of giving something back to the teaching profession and the schools we have worked in partnership with for the last 70 years.”

The Institute for Education builds upon a long history of teacher training and excellent education research, and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The Institute is a place where students, teachers, governors, researchers, support staff and everyone interested in education can come together in a community of research and exceptional education practice.

The IfE has been educating students, teachers and other education professionals for 70 years. As educationalists, the Institute work in classrooms and other settings across the world, providing the highest quality teaching and research - with over 600 partners, including schools, colleges, early years settings and anywhere where learning takes place.

The University is hosting a brand new Teacher Training Taster Day which will take place on Saturday 12 May. Register today for your free place.
