The Trust Programme

The application period for the second round of the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) Trust Programme closed at midday on 26 February 2016.

The application period for the fifth round of the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) Trust Programme is now open and will close on Friday, 29 March 2019 at 4pm.

This round of the programme will focus solely on Integration in Practice and is designed to support schools with embedding the integrated ethos within the structure of the school.  Examples of work to be funded include whole school training for staff, governors and parents; updating school policies; developing school approaches on contentious issues; religious education; assemblies and/or festivals.

All applications would be expected to include school based and community activities that live out their integrated ethos, and projects must be completed within the 2019/20 academic year. Funding of up to £5,000 per project is available and schools may work on an individual project or within a cluster of integrated schools.
