Call for Proposals

The objectives and priorities of the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund reflect and support the enhancement and transformation agenda that is being pursued at both a national and a European level. The fund enables strong sectoral collaboration, partnerships with other education providers or external stakeholders and institutional enhancement, for maximum national impact. This is the 4th phase of the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund. The call maintains its focus on collaboration for national impact while also enabling capacity building at a local level. The fund builds on and develops the completed and ongoing work from earlier phases of enhancement funding

Proposals must be made using the online course proposals template.

Please note: Proposals must be submitted separately and will be evaluated on its own merits even if it is linked to other proposals being submitted under this scheme. Therefore for every proposal a separate application must be submitted.
