Opportunity to take time out from the classroom aimed at enhancing personal and professional development.
The Goldsmiths Grant for Teachers is currently open for applications. The grant was introduced in 2008 to provide teachers and head teachers with an opportunity to take time out from the classroom in order to undertake an original project of their choice, in the UK or abroad, aimed at enhancing their personal and professional development. The grant, of up to £3,000, covers the cost of travel, accommodation, materials, etc. In addition the Company will pay a maximum of £2,000 supply cover to your school. Projects must have a long-term aim of disseminating results/research back to the school and/or wider audience.
Examples of projects that would be looked on favourably include:
Comparisons of best practice in teaching and school administration at home or abroad
Personal development projects e.g. creative writing, arts, music, languages and coaching
Study tours at home or abroad.
