Apply now for the new teacher-led innovation fund

The teacher-led innovation fund allows teachers inquiry time to work in groups on practice related projects – then to work with academics and researchers to share the project's ideas and findings with schools and other educators across the country.

The fund is part of the Investing in Educational Success (IES) – but teachers don't have to be part of a community of schools to apply. 

Application process

There are two stages to the application process. Concepts are due in February 2015, and if your concept is approved to progress, then full proposals are due in May, and you will be notified in June.

Before then, you would need to have studied the information about the fund and got some colleagues on board with your idea because applications have to be from a group of at least three teachers.

If you would like to apply to do an innovative project in the financial year beginning 1 July 2015, you need to put in your initial concept by noon, 20 February 2015.
