Career development

The branch will financially support branch members undertaking further training, whether for Continuing Professional Development, Initial Professional Development, or personal development providing that branch funds are available.

Where branch members are required to meet the costs of this training from their own pockets and aren't fully supported by their employer, the branch will contribute either 50 per cent of the training fees paid by the branch member or £375, whichever is the lower.

The branch member will be required to outline the learning outcomes of the training in the form of a formal briefing at a branch meeting.

All requests for assistance must be made before the training starts, as approval is not always guaranteed. Evidence of costs must be provided, including details of the training or course. Using the criteria noted above, the Branch Secretary can give approval provided adequate funds are available. Any doubts on either criteria or funding should be referred to the Chair. We can't make payments without supporting invoices and receipts.

Branch members may take advantage of this assistance only once in any financial year.
