What will I learn? This training workshop has been developed with input from funders and experienced practitioners to help conservationists create high-quality grant applications.
You will learn how to:
- Select the grant that is right for your project.
- Gather the information needed to develop your grant application.
- Create content for the application.
- Enhance and refine that content to make sure your application stands out and is easy to understand.
- Process the application from submission to responding to the result.

What will my learning experience be like? You will learn through:
- Pre-recorded videos sent out each week for you to learn from in your own time
- Live expert-led sessions every Wednesday, starting on Wed 28th September: 2 live session times available (10.00am or 5.30pm BST) to fit your schedule
- If you miss a live session you can still watch it in your own time later on
- A multiple-choice exam to help you focus your learning efforts and assess your own ability. On passing the exam you will get a certificate to show others (e.g. managers or potential employers) that you have attained this skill.
