The NZATD Education Trust Grants 2008

The NZATD Education Trust Grants 2008

Applications are invited for grants from The NZATD [New Zealand Association for Training and Development] Education Trust.

The aim of the Trust is to enhance the principles, methods and practice of training and development in New Zealand. This is achieved by making limited monetary grants available to any individual or organisation involved in training and development at any level. The grants are available to assist with specific proposals (projects) which are considered by the Trustees to be relevant within a wide range of fields associated with training and development. As a charitable trust, the Trustees must ensure that they are contributing to the wider training and development community, not just members of the NZATD.

Some activities that would fit the criteria suggested for the grants are:
- support research and / or study in New Zealand or overseas, the results of which will add to the knowledge and skills of trainers in New Zealand;
- assisting with projects that develop people to carry out with greater competence, jobs related to their employment, trade or business;
- support the promotion of awareness of training and development through publication, conferences, meetings and the media;
- supporting a visit to New Zealand by eminent people, knowledgeable about or working in a training related field overseas.

Where appropriate, successful applicants for a NZATD Education Trust grant are encouraged to share the results of their project within New Zealand either by publication - preferably in the NZATD bi-monthly journal “People and Performance” and /or presenting a paper in a suitable forum such as a NZATD or HRINZ [Human Resources Institute of New Zealand] conference, or a monthly meeting of the local NZATD group.

Each application should include some aspect of training and development and must be received by the Trustees by 31 March 2008.

A list of some of the projects that have received grants in the past, together with further information regarding the Trust and application forms for the grant can be found on the NZATD Website:
