CETL seed-corn projects
Seedcorn projects are small grants made to enable staff from City Community & Health Sciences, City University and the School of Medicine & Dentistry, Queen Mary University London to develop teaching materials. These funds are intended to provide an opportunity for CETL healthcare professionals in Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery, Radiography, Speech and Language Therapy and Dentistry to request support for work that is aligned to the CETL core goals and objectives. Funding can be used to purchase equipment, learning resources, CETL core staff time, etc.
Projects funded and supported so far have included development of interactive learning software, simulation equipment and software,  self directed web-based tutorials and multi-disciplinary e-learning scenarios, to name a few.

CETL spotlight and partnership projects
These are CETL-funded projects that explore, develop and evaluate new training resources and methods. Spotlight projects are academic-led, while partnership projects are jointly led by an academic and a clinical lead. Projects address one or more of  a number of core themes:
• harnessing the potential of simulation
• enhancing assessment of clinical and communication skills
• supporting students to share their expertise
• supporting students who need extra help
• enhancing support for clinical and communication skills development in practice settings

In addition, all projects:
• enhance teaching, learning or assessment of clinical and/or communication skills within two or more of the CETL professions;
• contribute to scholarship (e.g. by building on earlier scholarship, including appropriate evaluation or research);
• provide staff development for academic and/or clinical staff;
• generate material for dissemination to diverse audiences (e.g. academic peers, NHS practitioners, students, policy makers).
