Support for Personal and Professional Development

Whilst there are a wide range of development opportunities available within NHSBT, there will be times when, attending a conference or studying externally will be appropriate.  Development of this kind, which will require extra funding, must be linked to the professional requirements for your role.  Such requests should be discussed in your PDPR and incorporated into your development plan. 

Development over £900

Applications for funding over £900 can be submitted at any time. They will be considered annually, with a cut-off date for submission of applications of 31st March. Applications will be reviewed by the specific directorate Senior Management Team.

Development under £900

Applications for funding under £900 can be submitted at any time. You should discuss this development with your manager and submit an application form to them for their consideration. These applications will be considered locally by your senior leader throughout the year.  Once you have approval for your request, please complete the Support for Development Reporting Tool
