APHC are pleased to announce their support of the City & Guilds bursary for learners who wish to study for City and Guilds Plumbing qualifications. A small number of bursaries or educational grants are available each year for those who would not be able to afford to study their course without financial support.
The bursaries can be used for a wide range of purposes from paying course / exam fees, covering living costs if learners are unable to work while they study, covering childcare or travel expenses, to covering other costs that make it difficult for candidates to enroll on a course.
John Thompson, Chief Executive, APHC said: “The City & Guilds bursary is a valuable tool for young students who wish to study for a plumbing and heating qualification but cannot, for whatever reason afford the full fees. In the current economic climate this kind of help is needed more than ever to help the next generation of Plumbing and Heating engineers meet their full potential.”
Matt Lardi, Lead Portfolio Manager, City & Guilds said: “All too often we hear about barriers to educational achievement whether they be problems at school, the pressures of home life or lack of financial stability which results in a poverty of opportunity. At City & Guilds, we want to inspire people to fulfil their potential and gain the skills they need to succeed, and we hope that the City & Guilds bursary will help enable those chosen to fulfil their dreams.”
Applications for the 2012 bursary are now open and will remain so until 5pm 1st May 2012 and can only be considered from learners who are currently resident in, and wish to study in the UK. Anyone missing this deadline will be included in the next round of applications in September 2012.
