The ENTHUSE Celebration Awards are presented each year to recognise the impact that school and Further Education teachers, technicians and support staff have on their pupils, colleagues, schools, colleges and peers, as a result of the continuing professional development they have received through Project ENTHUSE.
Project ENTHUSE is a funding partnership designed to bring about inspired science teaching by providing subject-specific continuing professional development for teachers and technicians across the UK. Current funders include the Department for Education, the Wellcome Trust, BAE Systems, the Biochemical Society, BP, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Rolls-Royce, Royal Commission for the 1851 Exhibition, IBM, Institute of Structural Engineers and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
This year’s awards were held on 5th July at a high profile dinner hosted by the Wellcome Trust. We were delighted that Ursula Lowe (Cambridge Regional College) and Maria Saeed (Blackburn College), both funded by the Biochemical Society as part of our new STEM Insight scheme, were nominated in the Further Education Science ENTHUSE Award. Ursula went on to win the award.
Our congratulations go to both Ursula and Maria.
