The Prince's Teaching Institute aims to improve educational provision in England and Wales through offering state school teachers unique support.
The Institute's activities are designed to re-inspire state secondary school teachers to give their best and to encourage them to inspire their pupils in turn. It runs events for English, History, Geography, Science, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Language, Latin, Art and Music teachers. The Primary Leadership Programme promotes the idea that a degree of subject specialist teaching at the primary level is a key component to inspiring older primary-aged children.
The Prince's Teaching Institute has grown extremely rapidly, and during the 2015/16 academic year over 2000 teachers returned to their schools refreshed by participating in PTI events. Over 10% of state schools in England and Wales are now members of the Schools Programme and Schools Leadership Programme.
