Teacher Development Fund Reopens for 2022

Education, Employment and Training

20 September 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to support delivery of effective arts-based teaching and learning opportunities in the primary classroom.

Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) is now inviting applications for the next round of its Teacher Development Fund to promote partnerships between schools and arts-based organisations in the UK.

Grants of up to £150,000 per partnership for two academic years are on offer, with around six grants expected to be made this round.

Lead applicants may be:

  • Charities, community organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profits companies active in the arts.
  • Primary schools and academies operating in the state sector.

Each partnership must include one or more arts/cultural organisations. PHF expect that a minimum of five and a maximum of ten schools will be involved in each project. Each participating school should commit at least two teachers and one senior leader to the project, though flexibility can be offered to small, rural schools.

Projects should align with at least one of the following priorities:

  • Supporting the needs of pupils experiencing inequity.
  • Embedding learning through the arts in the curriculum.
  • Exploring blended Continued Professional Development and Learning (CPDL) models.
  • Strong partnerships between arts/cultural organisations and schools.

Grants will support both activity costs and core organisational costs which relate directly to the project.

The deadline to apply is 22 November 2022 at 12 noon.


How To Apply

The deadline to apply is 22 November 2022 at 12 noon.

Applicants can read the transcript of the webinar that took place on 21 October 2021. The webinar provided details of the Fund's priorities and application process, which have remained the same for 2022.

Applications should be made online via the Paul Hamlyn Foundation website.
