Further Training Bursaries are awarded on ALL courses provided the minimum student enrolment has been met (stipulated in each course details). All students on a qualifying course will be automatically considered for a Further Training Bursary.
Actors should have booked the course at least 48 hours in advance to allow them a chance to prepare for the workshop by reading the plays or text required for the course which are emailed in advance.
No bursaries will be awarded to a student who has arrived late for any classfor any reason, except when the cause is a major public event resulting in verifiable and severe travel disruption, or for incapacitating illness, when a doctor’s certificate will be required.
Further Training Bursaries are awarded competitively, strictly according to merit, regardless of age, race, gender or physical ability, in accordance with Equal Opportunities good practice.
Discussion between tutors will be based on professional experience and will be entirely democratic and unbiased.
The decision of the Panel will be absolutely final. No appeals will be heard under any circumstances.
