I had a fantastic experience over these years and personally I wouldn’t have joined this profession if it wasn’t for Researchers in Schools. I’m thankful to everyone who was part of my journey and grateful for the support I have received.
The RIS programme is an excellent teacher training scheme for PhD holders. I have made a difference to pupils through the Uni Pathways course which provides a forum for trainee teachers on the RIS programme to introduce pupils to topics they might go on to study at university.

I wanted to join RIS as I grew up in under-privileged circumstances and the people that strongly influenced me were the enthusiastic and passionate teachers that made science come to life for me. This experience is allowing me to help pupils realise their full potential and I can bring cutting-edge research and opportunities into the classroom.
