Want £15,000 to develop a great teaching idea to help disadvantaged children?
Teachers across the country have great ideas every day to excite and engage their pupils. The Let Teachers SHINE competition, run by education charity SHINE (Support and Help in Education), gives ten teachers a chance to develop these ideas, offering grants of up to £15,000 for any successful submission aimed at raising the achievement of disadvantaged children.
Supported by Capita SIMS, the competition, now in its fourth year, is open to anyone teaching in England.
Teachers can win one of ten individual grants to develop their teaching idea and those deemed to have the most impact on pupils may receive further funds to have their scheme rolled out to other schools.
Those wishing to enter the Let Teachers SHINE competition must show that they have an idea or initiative that will help disadvantaged students raise their achievement levels in English, maths or science.
The competition is free to enter and is open until Monday 27 April 2015. The participants will be shortlisted before undertaking a series of interviews. The ten grants of up to £15,000 will be awarded in June 2015.
