Continuing Professional Development Grants

FOR THOSE WITH AT LEAST FIVE YEARS WORKING EXPERIENCE


The Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass is pleased to announce that once again they will offer two Continuing Professional Development Awards for the year 2020-21. The next deadline for entry is 31st January 2020. Applications are invited from practitioners with at least five years’ working experience who wish to broaden their professional skills. Continuing Professional Development Awards provide short duration assistance to practitioners in order to broaden their professional skills, whether by moving towards the attainment of accredited status as conservators, by obtaining tuition to increase their effectiveness and proficiency in practising their craft, or by developing their creative skills. They can enable attendance at short courses, masterclasses, or conferences.


As a charity The Foundation is obliged to consider favourably the most cost-effective solutions to training needs, which usually means established courses. However, if no appropriate course is available we will, of course, look favourably on bespoke, one-to-one, teaching alternatives with a training plan provided. Each award will offer up to £550 for tuition or conference costs and up to £225 subsistence. You can download application details here.  For further information contact the awards co-ordinator.
