Project ENTHUSE was launched in 2008 by the Wellcome Trust, the Department for Education, AstraZeneca, AstraZeneca Science Teaching Trust (renamed Primary Science Teaching Trust in 2013), BAE Systems, BP, General Electric Foundation, GlaxoSmithKline, Rolls-Royce, Vodafone and Vodafone Group Foundation.
The scheme to provide professional development for science teachers and technicians received a renewed commitment of funding of more than £22 million over five years in 2014 from the Department for Education, the Wellcome Trust, BAE Systems, BP, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Rolls-Royce and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
These organisations have come together to bring about inspired science teaching through the continuing professional development of teachers of science across the UK. The principal means by which the ENTHUSE Charitable Trust does this is by providing ENTHUSE Award bursaries to teachers to enable them to attend continuing professional development courses delivered by the National Science Learning Centre. Through this support pupils are more inspired by and engaged in their science education.
