The Schools Programme

Delegates sat at tables in a summer school seminarThe Schools Programme is a membership group designed to encourage inspirational teaching by providing structure and a national network of support to departments eager to improve their subject provision.

Our Residential Summer Schools serve as an induction to this network.

Residential Summer Schools

PTI Summer Schools are 3-day residential courses which provide an inspirational forum for subject leaders or their delegates to step away from the classroom and rediscover their love of their subject.

Consisting of a mixture of lectures by eminent speakers, teacher led workshops and one-to-one consultations with experienced Heads of Department, the Summer Schools enable participants to enhance their department's work and feed their discussion conclusions back to senior policy-makers.

Contributors to our Summer Schools have included Sir Tom Stoppard, Professor Simon Schama, Michael Palin, Jonathon Porritt and several Secretaries of State for Education.

Attendance at a Summer School allows a subject department to join our Schools Programme.
