The Researchers into Schools programme is two year salaried route (can be as much as £40,000 per year for some subjects!) for researchers who have completed, or are about to submit, a PhD thesis. The first cohort of trainees was in 2013/14 and was piloted in London. This year the programme has been extended to six regions and covers a range of shortage and non-shortage subjects. There are various application periods throughout the year and the current round of recruitment opened on 12 January and closes in February.
