THE PRINCE'S TEACHING INSTITUTE (PTI)
The PTI is an independent educational charity created by the Prince of Wales. It believes that all children, irrespective of background or ability, deserve a rich subject-based experience at school - both within and beyond the examination curriculum. It believes that young people's opportunities in life are maximised by having inspiring teachers, who are knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. It allows teachers to rediscover their love of their subject through Various programmes, and by bringing passionate teachers together, it encourages school departments to make rigorous curriculum choices, promote teaching beyond the test, and enables schools to forge links with other like-minded schools and academic institutions.
