Bids will be welcome from existing or new groups, including NATRE or other local networks.

  • Organising a local conference
  • Developing a series of Teachmeets
  • Creating a sustained training programme for new or emerging leaders of RE
  • A series of sessions designed to develop teachers’ subject knowledge
  • Creating a research hub proving an opportunity for teachers to work together to innovate and share good practice.
