We take a proactive approach to the work we wish to support and so the vast majority of unsolicited proposals we receive are unsuccessful.

Applying for Support

We are however willing to consider exceptional proposals which fit closely with our specific aims and focus areas. This website gives a good indication of the type of education programmes and areas of work we are interested in. In particular, please note that we are not seeking to support initiatives in the Early Years or Primary sectors, focusing instead on the Secondary and Further Education sectors.

Please also note that we do not give direct support to individuals, educational tuition fees, scholarships, or expeditions. A key priority for us is to expand our work seeking to improve the supply and status of technicians - those in the UK workforce with Level 3 and 4 STEM skills - and proposals focused on this aim are more likely to receive support.

An independent Think Tank established to improve support for leadership in Further Education. As part of my FETL Fellowship I will be looking at the particular role that the third sector plays in publicly funded education and skills.

An independent Think Tank established to improve support for leadership in Further Education

If, as I believe, the third sector makes a distinctive contribution, then it leads me to consider two key questions: What are the factors that have caused this role to emerge? Is the way that FE is funded, directed and managed, supporting or undermining this contribution? It seems to me that in considering these questions, it is necessary to explore and challenge the metaphors or descriptors we use to define the institutions and processes of the delivery of FE in England. System? “The further education (FE) system – the colleges and training providers that teach vocational qualifications and skills – needs to guarantee students high quality teaching and courses to help students into jobs or university and create the skilled workforce employers need.” The term ‘system’, as used by government, implies some purpose and integration.
