Arising from the Teacher Supply Action Plan (TSAP), proposals are invited for flexible programmes to upskill registered post-primary teachers to teach Mathematics, Physics, and Spanish. The Call for Proposals is being managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills (DES).
To specifically address teacher supply challenges experienced in Irish medium schools, proposals for programmes to upskill teachers to teach the targeted subject in an Irish medium setting are particularly welcome.
Proposals in line with the criteria outlined in the call document should be submitted to the HEA in electronic format before 5pm on 2 March 2020 to email@example.com.
Eligible institutions that intend to submit a proposal(s) are requested to return an Expression of Interest form to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 24 January 2020.
Requests for clarification should be directed to email@example.com. Responses will be provided via a FAQ document, which will be published on the dedicated call page on the HEA website at regular intervals.
Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are invited to submit applications for funding under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative (SALI) Call 2019, in line with the requirements set out in the Call for Applications. This Call is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA), on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills (DES). Following a competitive process based on an annual Call for applications from HEIs, the HEA will approve a defined number of new and additional senior academic leadership posts to successful HEIs. It is envisaged that 45 senior academic leadership posts will be awarded to HEIs over three years to assist in accelerating gender balance at senior levels.
The Senior Academic Leadership Initiative aims to help achieve equality of outcome in the higher education sector. New and additional senior academic leadership posts will be funded in areas where:
- there is clear evidence of significant gender under-representation
- where this appointment will have significant impact within the HEI and the relevant faculty/department/functional unit
- where they would be a proportionate and effective means to achieve accelerated and sustainable change within an institution
Deadline for submission is 12.00 18 October 2019
Please submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Eligible Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that expressed an interest are invited to submit proposals for funding under the Higher Education Strategic Infrastructure Fund.
The closing date for receipt of applications is 4pm on Tuesday April 2nd 2019 (GMT).This call is now closed.
