This a two day course, the learning will take place on Wednesday 18th November 2020 (10 am - 1 pm) and Wednesday 25th November 2020 (10am - 1 pm). Participants must attend both days.

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

The interactive virtual training session 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.

How does it work?

• This a two-day course, the learning will take place on Wednesday 18th November 2020 (10 am - 1 pm) and Wednesday 25th November 2020 (10 am - 1 pm). Participants must attend both days
• The course will use Zoom to create a virtual classroom, where presentations and group interactive exercises will take place, just like they do in a traditional classroom
• There is time to work independently to demonstrate your learning
