Funding for teachers to travel abroad to study teaching methods

06 November 2018

The Iain Grant Charitable Trust provides funding for teachers who are interested in travelling abroad to study teaching methods used in other countries.

Ayla, a teacher who used the fund to visit schools in Dubai, said: “This opportunity has meant that my own practice as a class teacher has been enhanced through the sharing of good practice with outstanding schools in Dubai. It has enabled me to explore new initiatives and further my expertise as a senior leader of 21st century technology. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Trustees for enabling me to experience outstanding teaching and learning in Dubai.”

While another teacher, Patricia, went to Zambia and said: “I will take back with me, how the teachers manage to provide lessons with so little physical resources. The children are eager to learn and their keen behaviour reflects this.”
