The Society is delighted to announce that our Geography Teacher Training Scholarships programme has received additional funding from the Department of Education.
The Department for Education is continuing to support us to provide the scholarships which give outstanding trainees significant financial and professional support. Successful applicants receive an enhanced training bursary of £28,000 tax-free funding and a range of other benefits including training events, access to materials and resources, Fellowship of the Society and also membership of the Geographical Association during their training year.
Since 2016, we have successfully supported 233 Scholars, with our first cohort of over 100 beginning teaching this September.
One of last year’s Scholars, Rowena Butterworth, who started teaching this term, said “The scholarship has been amazing! As well as the financial benefits, the scheme has opened so many doors and networking opportunities with others in the field. The Society has held a number of different training events specifically for trainees which have been a great addition alongside my university training."
Applications for our Scholarships will open in mid-October for individuals planning to start their teacher training course in September 2019.
