All children, whatever their background or ability, are entitled to be taught by passionate teachers who are knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. We re-engage teachers with their specialist subjects, inspiring them to bring renewed enthusiasm into their classrooms and raise the aspirations of their pupils.
We believe that teachers are the key to a great education, and a great education can open up opportunity and possibility for young people.
We are committed to making high quality, enjoyable education available to all.
The Prince’s Teaching Institute helps teachers rediscover their love of their subject, inspiring them to bring the latest thinking into their classrooms and supporting them to make lasting improvements in what and how they teach. Our membership programmes bring passionate teachers together and encourage them to make rigorous curriculum choices, to teach beyond the test and to forge links with like-minded schools and academic institutions.
