Funding Opportunities for Coaching Guide 2016

Living Sport Coach Bursary 2017

Please see the NEW Coach Bursary application form below. We are now happy to receive applications for our Level 2 bursaries. Please be aware that we have limited funding available and we cannot accept all applications. We will make you aware of status of your application after we have reviewed it. Further funding will be considered in September for those who miss out this time round. Please make yourself aware of the Coach Bursary Guidelines (link below) to ensure you qualify to apply. Please make yourself familiar with our strategic areas outlined in the guidelines. We are taking a more focused approach to our bursaries this year and mention of one or more of these areas will lead to a stronger application.

We have also introduced 2 x £250 bursaries for coaches looking to complete a Level 3 qualification. Due to our work with talent coaches, we feel that this is a good way to support those who are looking to progress their skills into the talent arena. If you are interested in this bursary, please complete the application below and clearly state that you are applying for a Level 3 qualification. Please note: Level 3 qualifications can only be applied for if you currently hold a valid Level 2 qualification.
