Paul Hamlyn Foundation Teacher Development Fund re-opens for applications

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has announced that the Teacher Development Fund (TDF) has re-opened for applications.

Through the TDF, primary schools working in partnership with other primary schools as well as arts / cultural organisations can apply for grants of up to £150,000 to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to support the delivery of effective arts-based teaching and learning opportunities in the classroom, and to embed learning through the arts in the curriculum.

Lead applicants may Charities, community organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profits companies active in the arts, primary schools and academies operating in the state sector.

Applications should focus on:

  • Primary schools
  • Supporting children and young people experiencing systemic inequity and disadvantage
  • Approaches which involve learning through the arts
  • Projects which take an anti-racist and intersectional approach across all areas of work
  • 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.
  • Projects that build on emerging approaches to blended CPDL and include one of more elements of online delivery.

The Fund has one deadline per year. The deadline is Tuesday 22 November at 12 noon. The Teacher Development Fund has a two-stage application process.

Each year the Foundation expect to make around six grants.
