Teacher Fellowships

Teachers who have demonstrated their commitment to physics education can apply for a Senior Teacher Fellowship, allowing them to undertake a project that will develop their physics teaching leadership and support other teachers of physics.

Teachers who have demonstrated commitment to physics education and wish to develop their skills while remaining in the classroom can apply for a Senior Teacher Fellowship.

Senior Teacher Fellowships enable teachers to:

  • Develop and deliver a physics education project of their interest
  • Build skills and experience both inside and outside of the classroom
  • Share ideas and engage with a community of Ogden fellows

The Senior Teacher Fellowship programme includes:

  • Time buy out of a half or full day per week to plan and deliver the project
  • Half termly mentoring to support the development of the project
  • Up to £2,000 project costs
  • Ogden Physics Futures conference attendance

Senior Teacher Fellowships are available for independent projects devised by a teacher, or for a project identified and outlined by the Trust. A Senior Teacher Fellowship is usually awarded to the school as a time buy out. Funding is offered to the school to support the teacher’s salary at 0.1FTE or 0.2FTE with an additional 10 per cent of the awarded amount to cover on-costs.
