Science teacher training gets £22m boost

The science teacher and technician professional development scheme Project Enthuse has secured renewed funding of more than £22 million.

Launched in 2008, the scheme has provided more than 17,000 bursaries for science teachers and technicians to attend residential causes delivered by the National Science Learning Centre in York.

The £22m will fund the scheme for a further five years. The Department for Education and the Wellcome Trust have each contributed £10m to the project, and additional funds have come from other organisations including BAE Systems, BP, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and Rolls-Royce.
