Purpose

Key points

2. The FDTL programme is part of the subject strand of the Teaching Quality Enhancement Fund and is supported by the HEFCE and the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) in Northern Ireland. Applications may be made by HEFCE-funded institutions and DEL-funded institutions either individually or within consortia.

3. The aims of phase four of the FDTL are to stimulate developments in learning and teaching and to secure the widest possible involvement of institutions in the take-up and implementation of good practice.

  • medium-scale projects over a maximum of three years, with a maximum of £150,000 in total for each project
  • small-scale projects over a maximum of two years, with a maximum of £75,000 in total for each project.
