-A specialist training course to upgrade skills (please note this does not include tuition fees for a full time or part time college/university course)
-Attending a conference or seminar which will improve students professional knowledge and contacts.
-Tools or equipment needed to develop and practice skills.
-The cost of travel or accommodation to enable a student to carry out research for a specific project or enable them to carry out voluntary work, work shadowing or work experience
The deadline for applications is Friday 30th November and applicants will be notified of the outcome in January.
