Teacher Development Fund

Purpose of the Fund

The purpose of the Teacher Development Fund is to support delivery of effective and sustainable 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 has one deadline per year. Each year we expect to make around eight grants of up to £165,000 to partnerships of arts/cultural organisations and six to ten schools, who will work together for two academic years, and participate in a programme of activities to support peer networking and learning.

Applications to the Fund will open in September 2024. If you would like to register your interest and be added to a contact list to receive updates about the fund reopening, please email
