Churchill Fellowships unveiled

Fourteen educators are to travel the world and research new ideas for issues affecting schools after being given Churchill Fellowships.

Fellows are funded to travel for four to eight weeks researching innovative ideas and best practice in a practical subject of their own choosing. The average grant is £6,000.

The topics the education fellows will cover range from teaching controversial histories to professional development for new teachers, to e-learning, and more.

Winners for 2019 include Paul Middleton, a teacher from St Albans, who will travel to Switzerland, Finland and Singapore to explore approaches to supporting new teachers’ wellbeing.

Meanwhile Heba Al-Jayoosi, an assistant head from London, will travel to the USA to explore approaches to including autistic students in mainstream education, and academy group leader Howard Nelson will travel to Canada to investigate how small, rural schools can become sustainable.
