At SHINE, we support the brightest minds in teaching across England to develop new ideas to improve the educational attainment of disadvantaged children.

We do this through Let Teachers SHINE, our annual national funding competition run in partnership with Tes. We provide funding to any qualified, practising teacher in England who has a great idea to raise attainment in English, maths and science. We support them to trial their project, and if their idea has an impact on attainment, to scale the project up so that it can benefit children most in need.

As well as funding, SHINE also offers winning teachers with free access to a broad range of development workshops and coaching opportunities – helping them to get the best out of their projects.

Let Teachers SHINE is currently closed for applications and will reopen in the spring of 2020.
