City & Guilds Pacific Bursaries are now open

It is a privilege to be able to tell you about the City & Guilds Pacific bursary programme, and announce the launch of the 2018 application process. The Pacific regional bursary programme opens on the 1st February 2018, and offers financial support for learners who are looking to start or continue a City & Guilds or ILM qualification in 2018.

Why choose a bursary?

Access to education has never been more important, but it is still so often restricted by family background or household income. For too many people this means some educational courses are often out of reach.

Our targeted approach to support the disadvantaged learners through bursary grants are a lifeline. We are proud that we offer a diverse and inclusive programme which is open to all demographics from school leavers through to the older generation looking to further develop their skills in our ageing workforce.

Glenn Fulcher, Regional Manager for City & Guilds Pacific said “It is a great way to offer a helping hand to those that may not be able to afford another year of study. City & Guilds is a Charitable Trust and our sole purpose is to enable people to develop their skills for personal growth”.

“If you have a personal hardship that has made you wonder if you can afford to study, then you need to investigate our bursary offer. Once you are City & Guilds qualified, the world is at your doorstep.”

We recognise that getting into education itself is not the only barrier that learners are facing. If learners cannot cover living costs, childcare or travel expenses this can mean that they are unable to participate in their course. That is why a City & Guilds Pacific bursary can be used for a wide range of purposes including:

• Paying for course or exam fees
• Covering living costs if you are unable to work whilst you study
• Covering childcare or travel expenses
• Covering other costs that are making it difficult for you enrol on a course
