Taking Teaching Further

Round five of the Taking Teaching Further initiative that supports providers to recruit teachers, including maths, English & SEND specialists, is now open.

£18,200 is available per recruit to providers across the FE and Training sector.

About the Taking Teaching Further programme

The programme is a national initiative to attract experienced business and industry professionals to teach in Further Education (FE).

This Department for Education-funded initiative is managed on its behalf by the Education and Training Foundation who also played a key role in the programme’s development. It was launched in June 2018 with four rounds of funding having been successfully completed between 2018 and 2022.

Round 5

Round 5 will run until July 2024 and will continue to offer FE providers support with the funding towards new recruits undertaking a Level 5 teaching qualification, receiving intensive support such as paired teaching, mentoring or work shadowing, as well as a reduced teaching workload in the first year of teaching.
