Grants could turn teachers’ dreams into 
a reality

Have your say

Teachers are being urged to stake their claim for a share of £150,000 in competition grants - and follow in the footsteps of Louise Cline from Sheffield High School.

Education charity Shine is offering cash to teachers to help them put innovative ideas into practice.

In 2013, Louise put forward a project to introduce state school primary pupils to Tibetan debating techniques, which boost communication skills by using actions as well as words.

The contest for teachers across England is called Let Teachers Shine, and is now in its third year.

During that period, grants awarded have enabled talented members of staff to pilot education initiatives that target disadvantaged young people in order to raise their attainment in literacy, numeracy and science.
