PhD route into teaching

Researchers in Schools

In the UK today, there is an entrenched link between household income and educational success. Pupils from low-income backgrounds are far less likely than their wealthier peers to attain five good GCSE grades, progress to higher education or have a fulfilling career.

The Researchers in Schools programme tackles this by mobilising the research community to become outstanding classroom teachers, as well as champions of evidence-based practice and higher education. We offer PhD researchers a unique, fully-salaried route into teaching tailored to your abilities, knowledge and experience. Through a bespoke programme blending classroom teaching and research opportunities, you’ll develop the skills to become a highly-effective classroom teacher, helping support pupils, regardless of background, to excel and progress to higher education.

  • Pursue a three-year training and professional development programme placing you directly into a school to develop your teaching practice on the job.
  • Gain Qualified Teacher Status through a structured programme of observation and classroom teaching.
  • Deliver Uni Pathways
  • Access to bespoke training, supporting you to develop strong leadership skills and work towards the programme’s mission.
  • Receive one day per week of protected time to pursue the programme’s wider aims: Deliver subject- and education-focused research and high-impact interventions in schools to boost attainment and promote university access.

Benefits include:

  • A highly competitive salary and benefits package with salary uplift for maths and physics teachers
  • Protected time to pursue the Researchers in Schools aims with the opportunity to maintain a research profile
  • Honorary Research Associate status from a research-intensive university
  • Minimum 11 weeks’ paid holiday, teachers’ pension
