CPD BURSARY AVAILABLE NOW! 1ST December
Third Sector National Learning Alliance and the Education & Training Foundation Continuing Professional Development Bursary Scheme 2016/17
The TSNLA 'CPD Needs in the Third Sector' report identified that on the whole small VCSE providers are not able to access CPD opportunities - very often not knowing what is available and even when aware not able to fund it. With support from the Education and Training Foundation the TSNLA is again operating a CPD bursary scheme to enable staff in the third sector to access appropriate CPD opportunities.
If you or your staff need to go on a course but don't have the funds to pay for it or don't have the travel costs then this scheme is for you. The funding pot is limited so we will be keeping the application process as simple as possible.
What can be funded?
Travel costs may be funded for courses which are delivered by or funded by the Education and Training Foundation - no others can be supported through this scheme.
If you attend or participate in a paid for course provided by the Foundation you can apply for both delegates costs and travel - the amount claimed will be the cost actually paid out up to £250.
How much is on offer?
Up to a total of £250 per individual is available. Up to 2 participants from one organisation may apply.
What do you need to do?
Apply using the form available through the link below. To be eligible participants will need to provide receipts and following on from the CPD complete a brief TSNLA online evaluation questionnaire.
Membership of TSNLA
It is not a requirement for the bursary that participant's organisations are TSNLA members - though it would be helpful if provider organisations do at least join as free subscriber members.

CPD AVAILABLE THROUGH THE THIRD SECTOR PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE
We are delighted to announce that the TSNLA has won one of five contracts to develop a Professional Exchange funded by the Education and Training Foundation.
The Exchange is in partnership with Enable in the East Midlands, V learning Net and ODILS (Open Doors International Language School) in the South West and London Learning Consortium and ELATT Connected Learning in the London and South East.
Update on CPD events
In the East Midlands Enable are holding an event called 'Talk to Us' on the 10 November. This will focus on the use of technology in teaching and be held in a marketplace format. If you are in this region and want to take part in the Exchange complete the online survey at:
London and the South East
London Learning Consortium and ELATT will be offering CPD soon - ELATT will be providing workshops on the use of the video peer observation model - to take part in this complete the online questionnaire at:
https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FJ769YF - to access the ELATT CPD
London Learning Consortium will also be offering CPD soon - to access this go to:
The South West
V Learning Net and ODILS are running a workshop on the 11 November - this will focus on Functional Skills and Problem Solving - to access this complete the questionnaire and go to:
Based on key elements such as exchange of experience and knowledge, a 'bottom-up' approach to identifying Continuing Professional Development needs, the integration of the Professional Standards and extended reach through participant sharing, the Exchange will build around one national and three regional professional networks and deliver free at the point of delivery face to face CPD sessions having identified needs through pre-participating self assessment questionnaires.
One of the key features of the programme will be in calling on participants to share their own knowledge and expertise (hence the exchange) both through initial CPD delivery and by sharing the content afterwards with at least two other colleagues.
Right now we are in the set-up phase but will be releasing more information soon and will let everyone you know how you can take part in this exciting venture.
