Let Teacher’s SHINE Fund

Let Teachers SHINE is a competition run by SHINE Trust; a charity based in the North that helps raise the attainment of disadvantaged children from the North East, North West, Yorkshire and the Humber regions.

Teachers who have a brilliant idea they would like to pilot in their classroom to support economically disadvantaged children up to the age of 18 years to flourish at school can apply for a grant of up to £25,000 over two years. Winning teachers will also have free access to a broad range of development workshops and coaching opportunities – helping them to get the best out of their ideas.

This year there is a total of £150,000. It is expected that 10 grants will be awarded.

SHINE is seeking projects that:

  • Are led by a qualified teacher currently practising in a school in the North of England or a qualified teacher currently practising outside of the North who is committed to expanding their project in the North of England
  • Target economically disadvantaged children aged 0-18 years.
  • Are innovative. Projects should be exciting and inspire children. Applicants need to show how their idea is different, or an improvement on what is currently practiced
  • Focus on raising academic achievement levels specifically in core subjects (English, maths and science)
  • Can be tested to understand impact at class, year or school level and have the potential to grow.
  • Have the backing of the teacher’s school and leadership team.

There is a two-stage application process.
