Applicants will be requested to explain how the proposed training will be of value in their role within their organisation and to outline how it will benefit their career and personal development. We welcome and encourage applications from minority groups in championing inclusion and diversity within our sector.
Employers must set out how the proposed training meets the aims and objectives of the company’s learning and development strategy. It is important to note, the bursary does not endorse applications that cover training for areas which are a legal requirement as part of doing business or those which relate to general business improvement projects, such as the support or management of computer-based information systems.
Any member of the FWD, individual member of a buying group within FWD, or SPAR UK wholesaler can apply for a grant.

A maximum of £2,500 of match funding will be available for each grant application in respect of training which supports professional development.
