The 2017 Let Teachers SHINE competition is now open! This annual competition, supported by TES and Capita SIMS, to find the next big idea in teaching will stay open for applications until midday on the 24th of April, when SHINE will choose the winning teachers to partner with on their projects.
Now in its sixth year, the Let Teachers SHINE competition aims to find innovative methods of teaching that inspire children to succeed both at school and beyond it. The competition is for projects that aim to benefit students who experience disadvantage, and try to improve their educational achievement in literacy, numeracy and/or science.
SHINE provides funding up to £15,000 and other support to help get the projects off the ground, or to launch it to a wider audience. To date, they have invested over £1.4 million into 54 innovative teachers, benefiting thousands of children all over the country.
Ogden Teacher Fellows & Primary Consultants Amanda Poole (Shrubland Street Primary School), Jackie Flaherty (Chipping Campden School) and Carole Kenrick (Scientist / Inventor in Residence at Lab_13 Gillespie) have all been awarded grants through the Let Teachers SHINE competition.
Jackie Flaherty received her award in 2015.
