D - You and Your Project

Let Teachers SHINE is as much about investing in great teachers as it is supporting great ideas.  Please use this section to tell us about more about your teaching journey and why you have decided to apply to us.

We’d like to know what the problem is that you have identified (make sure this relates to our key criteria). We are interested in funding ideas that have the potential to be grow if successful. It is therefore important that this is a problem that exists beyond your school.

The solution: one of the biggest reasons that applications are not shortlisted is because it is not clear what their idea is and how it will be implemented. It may help to read this section out to a colleague to see if you have clearly described your idea.

We are looking for innovative ideas that either 1) present a new approach to tackling a problem or 2) where the applicant can demonstrate that this is an improvement on what is available to teachers already.
