Bath Spa University’s Institute for Education is providing teacher trainees 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, based at Bath Spa University’s Newton Park campus near Newton St Loe, builds upon a long history of teacher training and education research.
Around 600 undergraduates study at the University each year alongside around 600 trainee teachers – all committed to building creative, connected education communities focused on bringing theory and research to exceptional education practice.
