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”.
