In 2015, the Science Teaching Leadership Programme replaced the Teacher Fellowship Scheme. This programme signaled a change of focus from individual teachers to schools or science departments committed to a sustained period of science development. Schools access programme funding to support their ongoing science development.
In this context, the Society no longer offers Teacher Alumni Awards. Excellence in science teaching is recognised in the Prime Minister’s Science Teacher Prize.
