Applications are open for the eighth phase of the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF’s) Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA) programme, which will focus this year on English, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Essential Digital Skills.
Since 2015, there have been more than 200 OTLA collaborative projects, which have tackled a wide range of issues from creating a reading culture to supporting and developing vocational learners’ oracy skills.
The programme empowers practitioners to undertake action research projects in order to look at effective practice that is helpful in meeting the challenges they face, and to share the outcomes of their activity with the sector to improve professional practice and outcomes for learners. It is open to eligible organisations funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and applications are welcomed from individual organisations and/or organisations working in partnership. A maximum of 42 will be accepted.
The deadline to apply is 10am on Monday 2 August 2021. The application form and further details are available on the ETF’s Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment webpage.
The programme is funded by the Department for Education and will be run on behalf of the ETF by Claire Collins Consultancy.
