What do we mean by disability?
The Equality Act 2010 defines a disabled person as someone who has physical or mental impairment, and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Since September 2014 Clore Leadership has offered bursaries for its Courses, confirming its commitment to equality and diversity in cultural leadership.
These bursaries are open to applicants who are resident in the UK unless otherwise specified.
The Caring Support Fund
Intended for candidates with caring responsibilities, and who would incur additional costs by attending a residential programme. This includes but is not limited to caring for children or elderly parents.
- 5 awards per Course
- Up to £375 per week available for candidates with caring responsibilities, who incur additional costs while away from home
- To apply for an award you must upload a budget setting out estimated costs. The budget can be uploaded within the course application form.
In taking decisions on who will be awarded caring bursaries, Clore Leadership will take into account:
- The overall quality of the application
- Evidence of need which indicates that you might have difficulty in meeting costs incurred
The Independent Artist/Practitioner Award
Intended for artists and independent practitioners
- One award per Course
- 50% reduction to Course fee
To apply you simply tick the appropriate box within the application form and explain why you are a worthwhile candidate for the award.
Applicants from BAME-led organisations
Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people, are currently heavily underrepresented in leadership roles in the cultural sector in the UK. We welcome and encourage BAME candidates to apply for the Clore Emerging Leaders Courses and are therefore offering a 50% reduction to the course fee for any successful applicants currently working for BAME-led organisations in England.
Disabled Leaders Bursary
We actively encourage applications from disabled leaders as they are underrepresented in our Courses and the cultural sector at large.
As our recent Scoping Survey indicated, cost is a key barrier to disabled people accessing leadership training, therefore Clore Leadership will waive the course fee for Disabled leaders from England who successfully secure a place on the Leadership Intensive or Emerging Leaders Course. Successful participants will only be required to cover their travel to and from the course.
