This is a two day course, the learning will take place on Thursday 28th April 2022 (10 am - 1 pm) and Thursday 5th May 2022 (10 am - 1 pm). Participants must attend both days.

With so much competition for funding, you need to submit the best funding application you possibly can.

This interactive virtual training course explores how to write a funding application that satisfies the funder’s criteria, whilst at the same time promotes your project in an appealing way.

Previous Zoom Virtual Classroom participants said:

“Although I am experienced at submitting funding applications the course has improved my ability to focus on the key points necessary”.

“Excellent sessions, I benefitted from splitting the session into 2 half days as it allowed time for a lot of new info to be absorbed before jumping into more learning. Trainers very approachable and knowledgeable, with plenty of real-world experience to draw on”.

“I feel more confident that I could write a successful application”.

“Absolutely brilliant with the facts, what to look for and the necessary requirements for a successful application. Both presenters worked together well, and the information was easy, relevant and necessary”.

“I think the regular breaks help make the information more palatable as well as keeping minds fresh!”.
