The Standing Conference on Teacher Education North and South (SCoTENS) has announced its call that provides seed funding for projects such as research, conferences and exchanges in 2019-2020.  The call supports its objective of providing a supportive framework for collaborative research and professional activities in teacher education in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

As the funding is for a COLLABORATIVE project,  a minimum of 2 partners is required, with at least one of the partners coming from each jurisdiction, north and south. The application has to be for a joint project to secure funding.

Please note that all queries and applications should be sent to Eimear Donnelly, Administrator, SCoTENS at or on 028 3751 5292 (048 from the South).

The SCoTENS committee is particularly keen to receive proposals from people who have not yet been partners in SCoTENS-funded projects.  Applications from North-South partners who co-facilitated workshops at SCoTENS Conferences and are interested in deepening their engagement and scholarship are also encouraged.

The closing date for applications is 16.00 on 28 March 2019.
