Welcome to this special edition of the Teaching Council's research ezine, which is dedicated to the Council's John Coolahan Research Support Framework.

The Framework is a key element of the Council's CROÍ Research Series (Collaboration and Research for Ongoing Innovation). It supports teachers in using existing research to inform their practice, or in carrying out new research, either in collaboration with others or independently. The Council’s intention is that the Framework will encourage applicants to adopt an innovative and creative approach in considering how research and evidence can support their own and others’ teaching practice.

In 2021 the Teaching Council undertook a review of the Framework to ensure it continues to meet its objectives. On foot of that review, the Framework has now been redesigned as two separate but complementary schemes:
  • The Research Bursary Scheme (RBS), which we are delighted to launch as part of this ezine, and
  • The Researchers in Residence Scheme (RiRS) for schools, which will launch in early 2022. Information regarding this scheme will be released in the coming months.
Launch of the new Research Bursary Scheme (RBS)
Applications are now being accepted under the RBS. The closing date will be Thursday, 4 November, 2021 at 3pm.
