Paul Hamlyn Foundation: Teacher Development Fund

Arts & Culture Youth Wednesday December 5th, 2018

Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Fund awards grants of up £150,000 to school and arts/cultural organisation partnerships. Funds are to support the delivery of effective arts-based teaching and learning opportunities in the primary classroom, and to embed learning through the arts in the curriculum. It aims to do this through supporting teachers and school leaders to develop the necessary skills, knowledge, confidence and experience.

The Fund focuses 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

Grants will support both activity costs and core organisational costs which relate directly to the project. There is an expectation that participating schools will make a contribution. However, the Foundation appreciates that schools’ contexts differ and therefore the nature of this contribution, for example cash, teacher cover, school leaders time or other, is flexible.

Deadline: Wednesday 5 December 2018, 12 noon.
