The Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund (TLIF) was launched by the DfE in February 2017 and is a 3-year investment to support high quality continuing professional development for teachers and leaders in areas of the country and schools that need it most. The overall aim is to improve outcomes for children and young people, thereby making a significant contribution towards tackling social mobility.
NAHT's Aspire TLIF is a one-year, free of charge programme for teacher and leadership development, based upon the successful NAHT Aspire school improvement model. The NAHT TLIF programme will be delivered through networks of four schools; up to 24 networks will be created between now and 2019.
For schools to be eligible for the TLIF funding, they need to be located in one of the government opportunity areas (GOAs) or in Group 5 or 6 local authority districts. They must also have a current Ofsted judgement of requires improvement or inadequate.
