    Wales Training Bursary Scheme

    The Minister for Public Services has agreed to continue the training bursary for another year.  This will be available to clerks in Wales up until 28th Feb 2019.

    The criteria to receive a Wales Bursary is as follows:

    • Bursary limit is 50% of the cost of the training course, conference or CPD event up to a maximum bursary payment of £100. 
    • The bursary scheme is aimed at smaller councils and is open to any clerk or administrative assistant who works for a council with a turnover (i.e. annual budgeted income) of under £40,000.
    • If a clerk or administrative assistant works for more than one council, they are eligible to apply for a bursary at each of their councils, if they come within the £40,000 criteria. 
    • The Clerk at each eligible council can submit multiple claims during the financial year ensuring that the total does not exceed the £100 reimbursement.
    • The training course, conference or CPD event may start on the day this form is signed but must start/take place within 12 months of bursary confirmation - it cannot be claimed retrospectively. Training must be completed by 16th March 2019.
    • Support towards the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) Wales, registration fee can be claimed if the training is linked to the induction course ‘Introduction to Local Council Administration’ (ILCA).
    • The Wales bursary can be used for residential events as well as one day training events.

    Payment will be made via BACS directly to the council’s bank account.
