How our Awards support teachers

Programmes seeking an Award might include the provision of training, mentoring and coaching, including continuous professional development of all kinds, for new and experienced teachers.

Projects which are most favoured have the potential to result in lasting benefit, either through the intrinsic quality of the new ideas being put forward, or through the quantity of training or resources, and the numbers of teachers and/or pupils who will share in the benefit.

Programme Award applications will be scrutinised carefully to ensure that they are sustainable, give value for money and deliver our mission.

Award Duration

Successful Awards are notified in June each year. Funds are normally paid in two instalments – September and January.
Your programme should be planned to run within this schedule.

Programme Awards can be made for up to three years.
The continuation of awards beyond a year is conditional upon evidence of satisfactory progress being submitted to the Committee.

A Link Trustee will be appointed who will liaise and monitor progress throughout.

What We Support

The programme’s specific outcomes and benefits should support the teaching profession, specifically the teaching of Religious Education; Home Economics (including food and nutrition education); Design and Technology (including food and textiles).

It is not usual for the Trust to directly fund salaries or running costs of an organisation, although a proportion of costs that are directly related to programme delivery will be permitted.

Collaborative overseas programmes

The trust invites overseas applications for overseas programme awards in the areas above that demonstrate evidence of collaboration between ASET and the applicant organisation including shared funding$ and possibly shared administration#.

Shared funding and/or shared administration allows scholars to study postgraduate courses in their own regions or nations, in Religious Education and /or Home Economics (including Food and Textiles) where the career intention of the candidate is to teach in schools or college, or in community outreach programmes (provided that teaching in the subjects we support, is a key component of the community outreach role).

PLEASE DISCUSS ANY COLLABORATIVE PROPOSALS WITH THE CLERK PRIOR TO APPLICATION.

$ shared funding meaning that some part of the project cost is covered by the applicant’s existing resources,

# shared administration meaning for example that a grant partially provides for a programme where the individual candidates are identified and processed by the applicant organization rather than by ASET.
