Training and Continuing Professional Development (YMI CPD) Fund
Funding is available for organisations and individuals resident in Scotland who are dedicated to strengthening youth music in Scotland. The fund aims to support individuals, organisations and networks who work outside school settings to undertake training and continuing professional development that will strengthen youth music in Scotland for the benefit of young people. Music freelancers and organisations who may be working with young people both within and outside school settings would also be eligible to apply. Access to the Fund has now been widened to include training projects newly devised/adapted for online participation only.
Awards to individuals will generally range from £100 to £750 and from £500 to £5,000 for organisations.
Individuals should be already active in delivering youth music projects. Organisations should be willing to provide training and professional development that improves their capacity to deliver and develop music-making opportunities for young people.
Applications must demonstrate the following minimum criteria:
- the development of skills and confidence
- the development, strengthening and increased sustainability of the youth music sector
- the provision of increasingly high quality, efficient, innovative youth music services.
Applications can be submitted any time until the closing date to be confirmed. Early submissions are recommnended as the fund may be fully expended before this date.
