Staff Development Awards
To further the charitable work of the Consortium, the Trustees have an annual awards scheme for staff of Member libraries.
The awards scheme consists of several separate elements that could be applied for individually:
- Three awards of a maximum of £500 each to cover travel to, attendance at and accommodation for an appropriate conference*.
- One award of attendance at the equivalent of two full days of cpd25 training. The specific events may be chosen by the winner and attendance has to take place within twelve months of receiving the award.
- Attendance at the equivalent of one full day of cpd25 training (conditions as above for 2).
- One award of a free place at the M25 Consortium Conference
The call for 2020 is now closed. View the winners here.
Please keep an eye on our website and our mailing list for future Staff Development Award opportunities.
The winning candidates will be expected to write a report describing the event(s) attended and the benefits they have gained, for publication on the Consortium’s web pages and in our annual report. This report should be a maximum of 1,000 words, and the M25 Consortium reserves the right to edit the report to fit publishing guidelines. It should be submitted within 2 months of attendance (for Award 2 this would be within 2 months of attendance at their final event).
Any questions should be addressed to the Executive Manager.
