Let Teachers SHINE is now closed for applications

Let Teachers SHINE offers up to £15,000 to teachers who have brilliant ideas they would like to pilot in their classroom to help disadvantaged children aged 4-18 succeed in English, maths or science. It’s free to enter and open to any qualified, practising teacher working in England.  

Before you make an application, please read our Application Guidelines and our FAQs, and please remember that your project must: 

  • Be innovative – we want to see projects that aim to inspire children in new and exciting ways. 
  • Target economically disadvantaged children – we use Pupil Premium eligibility as a general indicator of economic disadvantage. 
  • Be scalable – we want to see projects which, if successful, can be scaled up and replicated easily, whether that be in other schools or areas, or working with a higher number of students. 

Read more here about projects which have won funding in previous years. 

Let Teachers SHINE will open again for applications in the spring of 2020.
