Unique PhD Route into Teaching

Unique PhD Route into Teaching

Location United Kingdom Job Type Graduate Scheme 2019 Start
Salary Sector Engineering , Science and Research, Technology: IT and Software Engineering

In the UK today, there is an entrenched link between household income and educational success. Pupils from low-income backgrounds are far less likely than their wealthier peers to attain five good GCSE grades, progress to higher education or have a fulfilling career. 

The Researchers in Schools programme tackles this by mobilising the research community to become outstanding classroom teachers, as well as champions of evidence-based practice and higher education. We offer PhD researchers a unique, generously-funded route into teaching tailored to your abilities, knowledge and experience. Through our programme, you’ll develop the skills to become a highly-effective classroom teacher, helping support pupils, regardless of background, to excel and progress to higher education.

  • Complete our Research Leader in Education Award, a fully-funded, three-year programme of professional development designed around the PhD skill set.
  • Create and deliver Uni Pathways, a university-access intervention based on your PhD, aimed at increasing target pupils’ chances of attending a highly-selective university
  • Take one day of protected time each week to work towards the RLE and Uni Pathways
  • Receive honorary academic status at a research-intensive university, providing access to research facilities and a network of academic support
  • Benefit from competitive financial support, including generous funding options for your training year
