The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) has two funding opportunities for which colleagues can apply. Both of these will be advertised through TILT newsletters and e-news articles. 

  • Sabbatical scheme
    Offering academic and professional services colleagues dedicated time – one to six months – to pursue developments which will impact positively on learning and teaching at NTU. Applications for sabbaticals in 2017-18 will be advertised soon.
  • Seedcorn fund
    Providing colleagues with a small amount of funding (up to £450) to support engagement in scholarly activities around learning and teaching, contributing to the aims of TILT and to the NTU Strategic Plan. The next round of applications opens in late 2017.
