Applications for the 2019/20 Farmington Scholarships are now open. These are Scholarships available to teachers of religious education and associated subjects in UK secondary, primary, and special needs schools. Headteachers who wish to undertake research into either religious education or values education are also eligible to apply.
A number of schools in the city have benefitted recently from this programme including Highbury Primary and St Jude’s CofE Primary.
Scholarships cover the cost of tuition, essential local travel and, by negotiation with the school, the salary of a replacement teacher up to point 6 of the main pay scale. Scholarships last for a maximum of 30 days and can either be taken at a local university (Farmington Institute has links with 15 throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) or can be home-based with a local tutor. Further information and an application form can be found on the institute’s website http://www.farmington.ac.uk/index.php/farmington-scholarships/
