Training & development fund

Coronavirus update

Due to current circumstances, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the Training & Development Fund.

We are currently unable to assess applications to this fund. Our welfare fund remains open and you can apply here.

We will reopen this fund as soon as it is possible to do so.  


Training and development fund 

We have created a Training and Development fund, in partnership with the CSIS Charity Fund, specifically to assist:

  • staff in education with the cost of education-related training
  • former education staff to re-enter the education sector or to transition to a new career

This is a pilot and funding is limited, but we hope to help applicants enhance their careers and develop new and existing skills. Find out about how Jody has gone back into teaching after receiving funding for training.

We are happy to consider funding for any course provided it seems likely it will have a genuine impact on the working life of someone in the education sector. From classroom management, working with challenging behavior to dealing with stress, we will look at funding many courses, please call us to find out more if you are unsure.

The Teacher Development Trust is a good resource if you are looking for a particular course.

To find out more about the criteria and eligibility for this fund please see our guidelines here.



All decisions regarding this fund are made by Education Support. CSIS Charity Fund have no involvement in individual applications, and will not enter into any correspondence about this fund.
