A residential programme that helps support teachers at two Fenland schools has been awarded a share of £75,000.
Teachers from Neale-Wade Academy and Cromwell Community College took part in the PTI Enrichment Residential last month.
The programme helps inspire heads of department and subject leaders so that they can share best practice and discuss new curricular demands.
This year £75,000 was awarded for the PTI and as part of funding from the People's Postcode Lottery.
It will help the expansion of the programme and increase the stretch and challenge within school departments.
