" The Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) is an independent educational charity created by the Prince of Wales... The Institute has developed out of the Prince of Wales Education Summer Schools held every year from 2002 to 2006 for teachers of English and History. The schools were designed to bring teachers together with the country’s most eminent academics, writers, and policy-makers in an inspirational forum for discussion of fundamental questions about their subjects: why they are important, what should be taught, and how best to do so. Reconnecting with their academic roots, teachers have described these Summer Schools as ‘inspirational’ and ‘life-enhancing’.

"The PTI has been set up in partnership with Cambridge University and with whom Continuing Professional Development courses are being developed. We also have an active network of schools who participate in our Schools Programme and who help organise Regional Events...

Franks Foundation, Nord Anglia Education PLC, Mr and Mrs Tager, Pennon Group plc, Keith Breslauer, David Tucker, Edmund Lazarus, Ben Iversen, Rupert Mitchell, The Nomura Charitable Trust, Goldman Sachs Gives, Mr and Mrs Weiss, Mr and Mrs Hampson, ShareGift, Baring Private Equity Asia, a number of anonymous donors and by the Training and Development Agency for Schools."
