Building on the popularity of the previous Research Bursary Schemes, and reflecting evolving thinking on research, teaching and learning, the Teaching Council announced a Research Support Framework on 11 March 2017. The framework has been designed to support teachers’ ongoing professional learning through their engagement in and with research, and the sum of €100,000 is being made available for the framework in the current year. An outline of the framework is available here.
Applications for the first round of the RSF were invited by 12 noon on 22 September and these are currently being considered.
A further call for proposals will issue in early 2018 and further details will be available on this page in due course.
