London Mathematical Society has announced that mathematics teachers in the UK can apply for grants of up to £400 to attend specific one or two-day conferences/events organised by professional mathematical organisations.
The aim of the grant is to facilitate mathematical professional development to allow teachers in UK schools and colleges to develop their subject knowledge. The grant can contribute to the costs of registration for the course and a proportion of the travel and subsistence expenses of attendees. Any application for a grant under this scheme must be made by a teacher of mathematics or ITE provider based in the UK. The grants are open to teachers of mathematics from primary school to A Level or equivalent (inclusive of STEP/AEA).
Queries regarding applications can be addressed to the Education Grants administrator, Katherine Wright, who can discuss proposals informally with potential applicants. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 020 7927 0801, or click here

Apply now for a travel grant to take students on an international visit to a partner school or college. Grants can cover travel, subsistence and admin. The visit does not have to be focused on languages, it can be themed around any curriculum subject. Grants so far have been allocated to schools and colleges travelling all over the world, to countries including New Zealand, Nepal, Uganda and Germany. Some trips are to increase language learning, others will have students working together on maths, science, history or media projects.
Whatever your subject is, if you have a partner school in another country, the grant is designed to help you take students on an experience which will raise aspirations, build confidence and create lasting memories of an intercultural experience. If you don’t have a partner school or college, The British Council can help you find one. The grants are aimed at helping disadvantaged students, who might face barriers to travel for a range of reasons.

Any organisation that is developing cycling activity in their community can apply. Award types are small-medium scale facility improvements or equipment through to large-scale new build facilities across all types of cycling. Decisions will be made every 12 weeks.
