Grants for Teachers

Teacher Tom Plant travelled to France and Israel, in the Goldsmiths’ Grants for Teachers programme. Tom had started teaching a medieval history unit on the Angevin Empire, encompassing the reigns of Henry II, Richard I and King John.

Goldsmiths’ Grant for Teachers provided the opportunity for Tom to visit and record evidence from important archaeological sites associated with the Angevin Empire.

The aim of Tom’s study trip was not only to enhance his teaching of the subject, generating resources for his students, but also to publish material and resources generated by his trip online, thus enabling a broader audience to benefit from the exercise.

Science for Society        

In Summer 2008, secondary school teacher Julie Boyles spent a week on the Science for Society Particle Physics course.

“I really valued the opportunity to learn more about Modern Physics, to refresh my subject knowledge and to keep up to date with recent research. The lectures were intellectually stimulating and I relished the chance to share lesson ideas with teachers from a wide variety of educational establishments throughout the whole of the UK. The highlight of the week was definitely the visit to CERN in Geneva, the Centre for European Nuclear Research. It was such a great learning experience that I applied for CERN’s international High School Teachers’ 2009 Programme. Spending three weeks immersed in Modern Physics, visiting particle detectors and having numerous conversations about teaching experiences in many different countries, was an amazing experience.”

The Education Committee, as part of its charitable strategic review, has decided to end the Science for Society residential course. The Committee is continuing to support STEM education via a new collaboration which will be publicised later in the year.
