Free STEM CPD and bursaries for schools from the National STEM Centre

The Curriculum Innovation team deliver Primary Computing / ICT CPD on behalf of the National STEM centre York to a national audience. Most schools can access a range of CPD around Science, Technology (including Computing) and Maths for free by completing a simple Enthuse Award application.

Details of their CPD can be found here and events we are running over the next few months can be found here. Please take time to review this provision to support your CPD needs for 2016–2017.

 

The Centre also provides access to School bursaries (Intensive ENTHUSE Award) of £5k and Partnership bursaries (ENTHUSE Partnership Award) of £12k. We have already worked in partnership with several schools in Bradford to write successful bids to access this provision. If you would like our team to work with you to write a bid please contact Paul.scott@bradford.gov.uk to discuss this further. We are already working with 2 partnerships on writing bids with the deadline being the 9th May.

 

Intensive ENTHUSE Award

Intensive ENTHUSE Awards of up to £5k are available to schools and colleges that have not previously engaged with the National STEM Learning Centre for support in professional development. Applications for Intensive ENTHUSE Awards are currently closed.

ENTHUSE Partnership Award

The ENTHUSE Partnership Award is a grant of £12k for groups of between 4 and 8 schools located in England, wishing to work together to address local issues of underachievement in science/STEM subjects. The ENTHUSE Partnership Award aims to support collaborative activities over two years to develop and strengthen local partnerships which can subsequently continue independently. Applications for ENTHUSE Partnership Awards are currently open and we are taking expressions of interest from new schools wishing to apply to become an ENTHUSE Partnership which will commence in September 2016. To receive an expression of interest form for completion, please email award-entry@stem.org.uk. Completed expression of interest forms need to be received by 4pm on Monday 9 May 2016. Initial expressions of interest forms need to be submitted to award-entry@stem.org.uk for the attention of Jo Davies. Please note, that successful schools will be expected to attend an induction and leadership event on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 June 2016.
