How much can I apply for?

Grants will be for up to a total of £300 and we anticipate will cover up to 60% of the total cost of the CPD activity, with the museum covering the other 40%. We appreciate this may not always be possible and in exceptional circumstances will consider grants for a larger percentage of the costs.

When can I apply?

there will be a series of application and award dates across the year, allowing the fund to respond to opportunities as they arise.

  • 5pm Monday 25 May 2017
  • 5pm Monday 4 September 2017
  • 5pm Monday 27 November 2017

Applicants will be informed within one week of these deadlines if they have been successful.

Who else do I need to inform about my application?

Directors and line managers will need to sign-off all applications and administrators will beed to be kept informed so we can ensure that all funded CPD activity fits with organisational priorities for PDR.

How do I submit an application?
