With so much competition for funding, you need to submit the best funding application you possibly can.
The interactive 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.
This session will help you:
• Explain to others what makes your project(s) special
• Explain the need to identify specific projects
• Demonstrate a knowledge of the application process and criteria/guidance
• How to structure and present a funding proposal
• Demonstrate ways of evidencing need for a project
• Identifying common mistakes in funding applications and how to avoid them.
This session is aimed at those who are new to writing funding applications, or those who have some experience but need some tips on how to improve the quality of their funding applications.

Previous participants have said:
“I would recommend this course - essential for anyone wanting to make funding applications”
"My objective for us attending was to raise our awareness of "what" makes a good application and benefit from your worthwhile do's and don'ts. Both objective thanks to your training have been fully achieved and we feel equipped to commence making meaning bids for financial support”.
“Clear guide on what to include, great interactive activities and really helpful handouts. Bianca was brilliant”
“We now have the ability to place more funding bids with confidence”
“Having not completed a funding application before I have learnt a lot that I will put into practice when I put in bids in the coming year”
“I feel more confident in filling out a funding application”
"Gave me more confidence and gave me more clarity”
“As a former secondary school teacher of English Language and Literature (especially A Level English Literature), I was also really impressed by the way you made absolutely everyone in the group feel valued and fully involved, which clearly got the best out of each one of us, and created a very positive, good-humoured and constructive learning atmosphere. This is a very special skill which you don't always see on training courses! So, thank you so much once again for all your hard work and insightful guidance”.
“It was a very helpful session and I feel like there is plenty for us to go away and look at! I will certainly keep my eye out for future SYFAB Training Days, as I find they really get me thinking about how to cut out the waffle from funding applications”.
“I would also like to say that I really enjoyed the course on Tuesday. It’s a long time since I have attended a course that was delivered as well as yours was. You made us all feel very relaxed from the minute we walked through the door, your delivery was impeccable, and your teaching manner was fantastic”.
