We are incredibly fortunate to have the backing of major employers for our scholarship scheme. Many employers see the benefit in ensuring that we are able to attract the very best people to teach computing and have therefore lent their support to our application and selection process.
Our industry partners donate their time and expertise to run interviews of scholarship applicants on our behalf. The industry interview stage is a vital part of the process and helps us to identify the potential for our applicants to become future Master Teachers.
As technology-oriented organisations, our partners are passionate about computing education. Their commitment to our scholarship programme is rooted in their belief that teachers have the power to inspire students with an engaging new computing curriculum. In turn, they believe that this will inspire more to consider technology-related careers. As employers, our industry partners also have a vested interested in ensuring there is a pipeline of future talent that they can draw upon and that can help to take their organisations forward.
