Masters Scholarship: Application Deadline 25th June 2021
The Culham St Gabriel’s Masters Scholarship is a way to help teachers of religion and worldviews (RE) to take a relevant part-time Masters course in an affordable, manageable way. It is a unique programme based on a four-way partnership between the teacher/TA/HLTA, their school, the university and Culham St Gabriel’s Trust. It offers the teacher an opportunity to take Masters-level professional development at reduced cost, and to see the impact of it in their own teaching, in a local network and/or nationally. There are a limited number of scholarship places allocated each year.https://www.cstg.org.uk/grants/individual/masters-scholarship/
Leadership Programme: Application Deadline 31st March 2021
This programme aims to develop local, regional and national leaders in the following four areas: Pedagogy, Research, Curriculum and Policy/Politics. Applicants are asked to apply for Stage 1 or Stage 2 of the programme:
This stage is for those local or regional leaders who are beginning to work across more than one school. For example, leading Religion and Worldviews across a MAT or supporting other schools in a Federation and/or leading a local group or hub. Some NATRE Regional Ambassadors, SLEs, REQM Gold award RE leads or LTLRE Hub leads might find this Stage of CPD helpful.
This Stage is for teachers who have completed Stage 1 and/or for those who already have a regional/national role and would like to develop their expertise further. This stage is particularly for teachers/advisers who are likely to continue their specialism into senior leadership roles within or outside of their school situation. Those who are seeking to become advisers, ambassadors or an Executive member of one of the RE Organisations are particularly encouraged to apply.
