The Paul Hamlyn Foundation is accepting application to the Teacher Development Fund until the end of November for projects starting in September 2020.
Now in its third year, the Fund promotes partnerships between primary schools and arts/cultural organisations across the UK, supporting teachers and school leaders to develop the necessary skills, confidence and experience to deliver effective arts-based learning opportunities, improving their practice and the outcomes for young people.
Each year it is expected that around six grants of up to £150,000 will made to partnerships of arts/cultural organisations and five to ten schools, who will work together for two academic years.
The Fund’s focus is on:
- Primary schools
- Supporting children and young people experiencing disadvantage
- Approaches which involve learning through the arts
- Long-term, inquiry-based projects which support teachers’ professional development and learning
- Promoting effective and equitable partnerships between schools and arts/cultural organisations and artist practitioners
- The contributions of school leaders and artist practitioners as both professional learners and as supporters of embedding learning through the arts in the curriculum
- Approaches which involve any of the following art forms: crafts; creative writing, including poetry; dance; design; film; music; opera; photography; digital arts and media; theatre and drama; the visual arts; and cross-arts practices.
There is one deadline per year. This year’s deadline for applications is 29 November 2019 (12 noon).
