Teacher Development Fund

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has announced that the Teacher Development Fund (TDF) has re-opened for applications. Through the TDF, primary schools working in partnership with other primary schools as well as arts / cultural organisations can apply for grants of up to £150,000 to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to support the delivery of effective arts-based teaching and learning opportunities in the classroom, and to embed learning through the arts in the curriculum.

The Teacher Development Fund has a two-stage application process. The Fund has one deadline per year.

Pre-application support: Potential applicants are advised to read the fund guidelines and FAQs and to explore the films, blogs and links to further reading.

Our webinar on Thursday 21 October at 4-5pm will walk you through the Fund’s priorities and the application process – register here.

To ask questions about the application process or to receive updates about the Fund and forthcoming rounds, please contact

The deadline is Tuesday 23 November at 12 noon.
