Hopwood CP School ENTHUSE Partnership Launch
Hopwood CP School together with a number of Heywood primary schools, are proud to announce that they have been successful in becoming an ENTHUSE Partnership. As an ENTHUSE Partnership they will gain access to £25,000 worth of support over the next 2 years to help raise the profile of STEM-related subjects in their schools.
ENTHUSE Partnerships bring schools and colleges together to work collaboratively and are designed to inspire young people to engage with STEM subjects and STEM-related careers. The partnerships have significant benefits for teachers, young people, and employers – transforming both the educational culture around STEM in schools and young people’s achievement and aspirations. Schools and colleges taking part receive access to continued professional development, leading educational resources, STEM Ambassadors and teacher placements. With links to local businesses and industry, our learners gain a greater understanding of the STEM industry and possible career paths.
