The Salters' Institute

The Salters’ Institute is an education charity whose mission for over 100 years is to inspire the next generation of chemists for research and industry and create a world where chemistry is a force for good. Today, it is dedicated to promoting the teaching, learning and appreciation of chemistry and chemical engineering. 

We bring students and educators together to explore the wonders of chemistry, its role in our world, and the exciting career paths it can lead to. We are widely recognised for our innovative outreach programmes, science curriculum development in schools at GCSE and ‘A’ level, and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our programmes combine the use of digital platforms and in-person outreach and extend across the UK with a focus on areas of high community need.

We are committed to giving all young people the opportunity to experience the excitement of chemistry, regardless of their background or circumstances.

Research tells us that direct access to learning and seeing opportunities can have an incredible impact on young people. Our programmes, awards, and alumni network are designed to help create a sustainable talent pipeline that gives young people opportunities to immerse themselves in chemistry, meet people in industry, and develop their potential talent.
