All Saints Educational Trust (Charity / Trust)
Reference Number: P157
Key Award Information
The All Saints Educational Trust is an Educational Charitable Trust that makes awards annually to students and organisations. It was set up with money from the sale of a Teacher Training College in Tottenham, North London, in 1978.
The trust’s main purposes are to: help increase the number of qualified teachers; improve the skills and qualifications of teachers; encourage research that would assist teachers in their work; support specifically the teaching of Religious Studies and Home Economics and related areas.
Academic Criteria: Applicants should have a first degree or diploma in Religious Education or Home Economics, including food and nutrition education, and public health promotion.
Applicants must have a written offer of admission for full-time study in the UK at a recognised institution of higher education (for example, a university), for a relevant qualification that meets the objectives of the Trust.
You can apply if:
- Your planned course of study gives UK 'qualified teacher status', or
- You are already a serving teacher and you want to gain further relevant qualifications, or
- Your planned course gives a diploma in Home Economics or a related area such as dietetics or a qualification in human nutrition and you want a career in the public sector.
Residency: Awards are open to UK/EU and Commonwealth students.
Other Criteria: Applicants are expected to advance education in accordance with the principles and practices of the Church of England or of a Church in communion with it. Nevertheless applications can be accepted from individuals of other faiths or of no faith, provided that they can illustrate that they share the same life values as Christians.
There is no fixed upper age limit, but the Trustees must be confident that anyone who is given an award will be intending to make a genuine contribution to society thereafter and will be in a position to do so.
The Trust prefers applicants who are in one or more of the following categories:
- First degree or diploma students of Religious Education or Home Economics, including food and nutrition education, and public health promotion
- Students on a programme of study carrying or leading to UK 'Qualified Teacher Status', such as PGC(D)E
- Students on 'foundation' courses that move applicants towards teaching in schools
- Applicants with a church connection
- Applicants who can supply a reference from a priest or minister of religion
- Students on a programme of study carrying a diploma in Home Economics or a related area (see above) who want a career in the public sector (other than the NHS)

The Trust is not able to accept applications from those intending to pursue the following programmes:
