Teacher Industrial Partners’ Scheme
Applications for The Teacher Industrial Partners’ Scheme (TIPS) are now open to teachers of Science, Maths, Design and Technology, Engineering and Computing. Placements are currently available for Staffordshire, the Midlands, London, Surrey and Farnborough, but teachers from all parts of the country may apply.
The Teacher Industrial Partners’ Scheme is a new joint initiative between industry and education that gives teachers direct experience of what takes place in modern engineering and technology organisations. TIPS aims to help teachers to help their students understand how their subject links to engineering and the diverse range of career opportunities available at all levels.
The UK requires 87,000 new engineers and technicians every year for the next 10 years. To address this, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Project ENTHUSE and the National Science Learning Centre have come together to support placements for science, mathematics, D&T and computing teachers with local engineering and technology employers.
TIPS enables teachers to update and enrich their knowledge of engineering through a two week placement with a local engineering company, supported by the National Science Learning Centre.
The fee to participate in the scheme is £360. Teachers from state maintained schools can receive an ENTHUSE Award bursary of £1,400 to help with supply cover and other costs to allow them to participate in the scheme.
