Teacher Development Fund

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.

In response to Covid-19,  the Fund will have a particular focus on exploring how blended approaches, combining digital and face to face delivery, can enhance teacher CPDL in arts-based learning.

Applications should focus 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.

The Foundation expect to make around six grants to partnerships of arts/cultural organisations and up to ten schools, which will work together for two academic years.
