The Education and Training Foundation delivers a range of Continuous Professional and Personal Development (CPD) opportunities for practitioners, leaders and governors in our sector.

This offer is sold at subsidised rates to make it more affordable, however there are some instances where individuals or organisations may have difficulties in accessing this training.

The Foundation is working with AELP, Natspec and WLN to deliver bursary support to those in our sector in greatest need of financial assistance to access training opportunities. Each of these bursary schemes is slightly different, based on the needs of the groups / individuals they are trying to reach, but as a general guide:

  • up to £250 per individual may be claimed to support travel and the cost of CPD delivery
  • an individual may not be supported more than once in any financial year
  • no more than two individuals may be supported from one organisation per year
  • any paid for CPD activity delivered by the Foundation is eligible for this support, unless specified on the booking system (exceptions will be rare and limited).
