The Innovation and Development Fund is a new grant programme with the objective of supporting innovation and development within technical, practical and vocational learning.

The Fund is intended to build on proven models of success or test new approaches within education and learning and is built on the Foundation’s Six Steps for Change policy, which, when implemented, would lead to an education and training system which:

  • Helps young people find out what they’re good at and what they enjoy doing.
  • Rewards and recognises individual success in all its forms, not just in exams.
  • Helps people choose paths that support their talents and ambitions.
  • Shows how education creates the knowledge,  skills and talents needed by the UK economy

Applications will be accepted from a wide range of organisations, including:

•An education establishment, such as any: ◦School or Academy

◦Further Education College

◦University

•A not-for-profit organisation, such as a: ◦Registered Charity

◦Company Limited by guarantee

◦Community Interest Company limited by guarantee

 

This list is not exhaustive. If applicants are unsure as to whether their organisation would be eligible they should contact the foundation for clarification.

Applicants can apply for funding between £50,000 and £100,000.
