The LCEEQ Newsletter - Issue 047 - The Funding Edition

Professional Development & Innovation


An important element in the LCEEQ Strategic Plan is the fostering of professional development and supporting innovation in the classroom. In collaboration with the DSREA (Direction du soutien au réseau éducatif Anglophone) of the Ministry of Education, funds are made available through the PDIG Project. Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are now being received. We have introduced the campaign earlier this year in order to have approved applicants notified in a timely fashion so that successful school teams will be able to start their project at the beginning of the new school year.

In the PDIG section there are always more requests for support than funds available so it is important that applicants propose focused, realistic projects that can be accomplished in the proposed timeline. Experience over the last few years has shown that some projects, although excellent, are somewhat overambitious, particularly in the number of substitution days requested. As a result, many teams are unable to complete the entire project leaving approved funds unused.

Please read the Project Funding 2019-2020 Guidelines carefully before embarking on an application for either a PDIG Grant or a John Killingbeck Teacher Administrator Scholarship Grant. It is important that you have a good understanding of the requirements before submitting your application. Although these projects have been running for a number of years there are a few modifications that should be noted.

You are encouraged to submit applications for both the PDIG and the John Killingbeck Projects as these are intended to assist you in your ongoing professional development plans.

Project Reports Archived for Easy Access


An important consideration with the LCEEQ Funding Program is that the information gathered, and materials produced are accessible to the entire English Educational Community. In this way, although funding is provided to a specific team to further their learning, the entire system can benefit.

Project reports can be easily browsed through an online search feature. The reports and materials contained therein might be of use to you and so you can use them freely. In addition, a project report may serve as a stimulus for a project that you and your team may wish to replicate or modify to meet your particular needs.
