Background

The Taking Teaching Further programme is a national initiative to attract experienced industry professionals with expert technical knowledge and skills to work in Further Education.

Objectives of Fund

Round 3 of the programme will run from April 2020 to July 2022. The focus will be on supporting Further Education (FE) providers to recruit people with industry experience to retrain as FE teachers in teaching positions across any of the 15 technical teaching routes.

Value Notes

Financial support is available for FE providers to address the cost of undertaking ITE and help create capacity for new recruits to learn and receive training and support on the job.

Funding of £18,200 per recruit will be made available to cover:

  • The full cost of undertaking a teaching qualification (a Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET) or an equivalent/ higher level qualification) funded up to a maximum of £4,000 per trainee.
  • Costs of additional teacher time providing intensive support to new teachers (for example through team teaching/work shadowing arrangements) for up to 144 hours.
  • Costs to cover new teachers having a reduced teaching workload until the end of March 2021, up to 140 hours (following the period of intensive support).

There is an option to cover the costs of a new recruits taking a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) qualification before the Level 5 DET if a provider deems that to be more suitable for their new recruit(s). For this option 132 hours would be allocated to the reduced teaching portion.
