The Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund is a 3-year investment worth £75 million, which will support high-quality professional development for teachers and school leaders in the areas and schools in England that need it most.
The aims of the fund are to:
- improve the provision of teachers’ continuing professional development (CPD) and leadership development in areas and schools that are facing challenges
- stimulate the demand for provision of teachers’ CPD and leadership development in areas and schools that are facing challenges
- support the development of a sustainable market in CPD and leadership development that will be capable of becoming self-funding in the future
The overall aim is to improve the outcomes of children and young people, thereby making a significant contribution towards tackling social mobility.
