£1 Million Available for Projects that Improve Education and Learning – 3rd May 2018 (UK)

The Edge Foundation has launched the latest funding round of its £1million Edge Grant Fund. Awards of up to £100,000 can be made for projects that build on proven models of success or test new approaches to education and learning.

Projects must support Edge’s plan for education and focus on technical and professional learning and skills shortages in the UK. They must also address in detail at least one of the funding themes:

  • Improve the design and delivery of engaging and relevant Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance
  • Support the development of Project Based Learning (PBL) and associated profound employer engagement
  • Support the development of a 14-19 curriculum which integrates both academic and technical/professional subjects
  • Support the development of innovative approaches to higher education at levels 4, 5, and 6
  • Ways to measure the performance of technical education.

In 2017, twelve grants were given to projects ranging from £100,000 to The Studio Liverpool for its Digital Entrepreneurship Network, to £80,000 to the Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education to develop its Business Ambassadors Programme addressing the skills gap in construction in Lincolnshire.

The closing date for applications is midday on 3 May 2018.
