Funding Opportunity - Teach Too Phase 6

Teach Too supports meaningful collaboration between education and training providers and industry, encouraging employers to spend some time teaching their skills and sharing their knowledge.

AoC has been commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) to support collaborative partnerships across the sector to develop Teach Too practice. This phase is looking to fund four organisational development projects each with a value of £10,000 and three smaller scale projects each £5000. 

This phase will focus on wider technical education quality improvement including Apprenticeships, Higher and Degree Level, Higher Technical Skill Delivery and Knowledge Exchange between colleagues who currently deliver Apprenticeships and those preparing to deliver T Levels. 

Phase 6 of the programme will support Post 16 providers to develop and embed Teach Too principles and practice across their whole organisation, to increase their understanding and to develop their practice through use of the Teach Too framework and resources.

Teacher Regional Improvement Projects (TRIPs) Round 2

Through ETF’s T Level Professional Development offer, there is an opportunity for 2020, 2021 and future T Level providers to participate in sector-led, collaborative action research projects, known as Teacher Regional Improvement Projects (TRIPs).

TRIPs should aim to develop teaching practice in preparation for T Levels and ultimately ensure that students undertaking T Levels develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours and competencies required and understand how they are applied in the occupation they want to progress into. 50 collaborative TRIPs will be funded across England. 31 TRIPs were commissioned in June 2019. Profiles of the 31 TRIPs are available on the ETF website. The second round of funding for the remaining 19 TRIPs is now open. £45,000 will be awarded to each TRIP. £20,000 is for project funding while the remaining £25,000 will be allocated for TRIP participants to access remission funding to allow them to participate in the wider T Level Professional Development offer. Each TRIP must involve a minimum of four organisations; one of which must be a 2020 T Level provider.

One organisation must be appointed as the project lead. 

The deadline to apply is Friday 11 October.
