Call for better pay

The first bursary from the Farmington Trust/SHA fellowship is available for the autumn term.

This fellowship provides a superb opportunity for a SHA colleague with an active interest in values-based education to undertake research or development work in any aspect of school ethos, assemblies, PSHE, or moral or religious education - or another area impinging on values and standards in school.

The trust will fund the equivalent of a replacement teacher at point six of the main scale, the cost of any university or college fees, and agreed out-of-pocket expenses over one term.

Alternatively, an equivalent resource could be used over a longer period of time to provide, for instance, day release opportunities.

The research field is vast, but possible areas include: leadership development for students, leadership development for assistant and deputy heads, assemblies in an age of religious polarisation, developing personal values across the curriculum, or assembly resource packs.

This is a great opportunity for a SHA colleague to gain personal and professional development and to provide further ideas and resources on an area of current educational concern.

The selection criteria centres foremost on the viability on the proposed project, and the willingness of the employer to grant a leave of absence.

Any SHA member is eligible. To find out more or to start the application process, contact Martin Ward on 0116 2991122 or martin.ward@sha.org.uk
