Funding to Address Educational Challenges Arising from the Covid-19 Crisis (UK)

In response to the coronavirus, the Edge Foundation has launched a one-off £250,000 fund to address the educational challenges arising from the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis.

Through the Edge Post Covid-19 Revival Fund, grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 are available to all educational establishments or not-for-profit organisations working within the education sector to support the development of projects and initiatives to revive education and support the sector to build a better future.

Funding will support medium- and long-term projects which support Edge’s strategic aims for vocational and professional learning, and address issues or challenges arising from the aftermath of the covid-19 crisis.

Projects must also address at least one of the following issues or challenges arising from the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis:

  • How professional and vocational education, including apprenticeships, can be delivered and supported by online learning. This can include the development of online curriculum and resources; and/or how to deliver training in the use of online and remote learning for teaching professionals
  • How to deliver mentoring and support for students and/or apprentices whether studying within educational institutions, in the workplace or remotely
  • How to deliver and develop essential employability skills in young people when relationships with employers and the community may have been disrupted or otherwise affected by the Covid-19 crisis
  • How education, including apprenticeships, could be delivered differently or better following the Covid-19 crisis.

The deadline for applications is midday on the 9th July 2020.

Completed application forms and supporting risk documents must be submitted to grant@edge.co.uk
