The Guild is willing to make grants towards the cost of learning & development initiatives that will enhance the quality and/or quantity of education provision within the Guild, at both an individual and group level. This covers the development of ringing skills as well as the development of skills for the teaching of ringing. Grants are assessed on their merits and are subject to available funds.
The L&D Workgroup is responsible for assessing applications and making onward recommendations to the Guild where the grant value exceeds the financial authority of the group.
Guidelines for Applicants
- Funding requests must relate directly to the development of new and existing ringers or ringing teachers within the Guild.
- Funding may be requested for expenditure relating to development which includes, but is not limited to the following:
a) Equipment to support development activities
b) Costs incurred for development activities
c) Fees relating to development activities
- Applications should demonstrate the ‘value add’ of the activity as something that would not otherwise take place, or as something that will enhance an existing delivery.
- To ensure monies can be distributed as broadly as possible, the Guild would generally issue a grant as proportion of the overall cost of any project. The proportion is not fixed, and each project will be assessed on its individual merits.
