Headway Scholarships Go Global


Headway Student's BookHeadway is one of the most popular ELT coursebooks around today with sales topping 70 million. The authors have recently announced an extension to their scholarship program helping 2 teachers a year in their professional development in the UK.

Since 2004 the authors (John & Liz Soars) have funded scholarships for 2 TEFL teachers each year to spend a couple of weeks studying in Oxford. Originally recipients had to live and work in one of the countries where Headway was a popular choice of textbook but now, for the first time, anyone can apply for the scholarship, regardless of where they live and work.

Editor’s Comment

Headway is a good book and has sold over 70 million copies which means a lot of income for the authors and OUP. Publishers, providers and schools these days spend too little on helping others so it’s nice to see this gesture – maybe even we can get others to help out as well?
