Funding opportunities for NHS (and associated) Staff

ScHARR has a contract with the East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber Regions of the NHS, under the Learning Beyond Registration (LBR)/Specialist Skills Post Registration Development (SSPRD) scheme. Under this scheme, the NHS will help to fund the tuition fees for their staff to study on ScHARR´s postgraduate modules.

These fee bursaries are available for a selection of modules on our taught courses (for example, the Certificate, Diploma or Master of Public Health). Funding will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Please see the Continuing Education for Health and Social Care Practitioners - CPD web pages and the ScHARR CPD pages for more details.
