What do we mean by disability?
The Equality Act 2010 defines a disabled person as someone who has a 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.
Clore Leadership offers a range of bursaries for its Courses, confirming its commitment to equality and diversity in cultural leadership.
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 There are five awards available on each course. Up to £375 per week is 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:
We encourage applications from artists and independent practitioners currently living and working in England. One award is available per course. The successful candidate pays only 50% of their fee + VAT. To apply you simply tick the appropriate box within the application form and explain why you are a worthwhile candidate for the award.
BAME Leaders Award
We welcome and encourage applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people who are currently heavily underrepresented in leadership roles in the cultural sector in the UK. Three awards are available per course for BAME applicants living and working in England. The successful candidates pay only 50% of their fee + VAT.
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 the Clore Leadership Programme will waive the course fee for Disabled leaders from England who successfully secure a place on the Short Course or Emerging Leaders Course. Successful participants will only be required to cover their travel to and from the course.
