Teacher Industrial Partners’ Scheme - a new initiative between industry and education

Posted: 10/10/2014

The Teacher Industrial Placement Scheme (TIPS) is a CPD event that places a Science or Maths teacher in a local Engineering company for a 10 day placement. Through the placement the teacher will gain experience in a variety of areas across the business, supporting their experience of how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects are used in industry.

The scheme has been created in partnership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Engineering and Technology and is supported by the National Science Learning Centre. Placements are available across England.

  1. If you’re a teacher of mathematics, science, D&T and computing, you can apply for a two week placement in a local engineering company
  2. You can gain an authentic experience of what takes place in modern engineering and technology organisations
  3. You can use your experience to help your students to understand how your subject links to engineering and a diverse range of career opportunities
  4. An ENTHUSE bursary of £1400 is available to teachers from state maintained schools to help with fees (£360), supply cover and other costs
