Arvon recognises the vital role teachers have in bringing literature and creative writing into young people`s lives, and in igniting their imaginations to write themselves. Teachers’ enthusiasm and commitment is crucial in securing the readers, writers and creative people of the future, so Arvon is committed to supported teachers’ own creativity.
We do this by offering practising teachers of English in UK state primary and secondary schools or further education colleges a special grant of £200 towards the full cost of a place on any public course of their choice. Simply tick the box on the booking form to indicate that you would like to apply for a teachers' grant.
General grants are available on all our adult courses for people unable to afford the full fee and in cases of financial need teachers may apply for a general grant in addition to the teachers' grant.
