On 5 February 2020, the Department for Education (DfE) announced funding for a Round 3 of the Taking Teaching Further programme. The Taking Teaching Further programme is a national initiative to attract experienced industry professionals with expert technical knowledge and skills to work in Further Education (FE).
Route 2 of this UK programme is open to all independent training providers, employer led providers, third sector training providers, local authority providers, and adult and community learning providers.
Round 3 will run from April 2020 to July 2022. Programme places will be allocated on a first-come basis so be sure to register early from 1 April 2020.
Route 2 registration for Round 3 is completed through this form (download). There is also a separate guidance document that provides information on the aims of the programme, criteria and funding available.
The focus of this round will be on supporting FE providers to recruit people with industry experience to retrain as FE teachers in teaching positions across any of the 15 technical teaching routes.
