Helga Todd Bursary Recipients

In July 2019, five newly qualified teachers from the department’s PGCE course travelled to three schools in Northern India to teach for six weeks before returning to the UK to join their employing schools for the next academic year.

This annual programme is funded by the Helga Todd Teachers’ Education Foundation which is an educational charity committed to advancing education by the promotion of teaching in target countries. The Foundation has been working with the PGCE course at Oxford for the past 4 years and over this period 27 NQTS have travelled to India under this scheme.

Congratulations to Romisa Asadi (PGCE Science), Alice Belfield, Laura Harris, Sophia Middlehurst and Laura Shurden (PGCE Modern Foreign Languages) who received this year’s bursary.
