Congratulations USC Lead Chemistry Teacher, Glen Arthur who has been awarded an NGS Super Scholarship. Glen was one of three teachers nationally to be awarded the scholarship.
The NGS Super Scholarship Awards support the professional development of those in the independent education sector who strive to make a difference.
Glen has been committed to progressing science education in both the public and private sectors for over two decades. Glen’s work in classrooms and schools has highlighted the need to further his formal qualifications to have a relevant impact and establish credibility in the field, particularly in STEM curriculum development.
Glen plans to use his scholarship grant to pursue a post-graduate qualification in the area of STEM education, serving to formally document the innovation projects undertaken and share best practice with the community of educators across the sector and beyond.
Last year, Glen initiated a project to provide opportunities for students through an offline, self-funded project that focuses on the development of STEM skills through project-based learning. Glen hopes that, through formal avenues for study and research, he will be able to publish and share recognised findings from this project among a much wider audience of educators.
