Learning and Development Awards

At Imperial Health Charity, we are committed to supporting the personal and professional development of staff at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Through our grants programme, we provide funding to support the Trust’s Learning and Development Awards.

The programme offers funding for education and development opportunities that may not be available from other sources.

How to apply

The application process is co-ordinated by the Trust’s People and Organisational Development directorate. If you’re a member of Trust staff, application forms can be downloaded from the intranet. The Learning and Development Awards page can be found by selecting, ‘Working here’, then ‘Induction and training’, then ‘Reward and recognition’, then ‘Development awards’.

Imperial Health Charity is not involved in the administration or decision-making process. The funding resource is limited and therefore not all applications will be successful.

When can I apply?

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. However, your application must be submitted at least 12 weeks before the start of your course or conference.

Information regarding closing dates for university courses are available on the Learning and Development Awards page on the intranet.

How much can I apply for?

Funding is awarded to applicants based on their needs. Each applicant can apply for up to £1,500 to cover course fees.

A multi-disciplinary panel will review your application and successful applicants will be notified by email. Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email with an explanation of why their application was unsuccessful during this round.

Am I eligible to apply?

Learning and Development awards are welcome from members of staff at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust who:

·         have been a Trust employee for more than two years

·         can clearly demonstrate how the learning opportunity will benefit them, their team or the Trust’s patients.

Further information about eligibility criteria is available on the Learning and Development Awards page on the intranet.
