How to apply for conference and development funds
Education Staff Conference Fund

The Education Staff Conference Fund offers support to individuals who want to present or attend a conference related to their area of work. Applications are considered at regular intervals throughout the year, and are open to academic and professional services staff.

Education Staff Development Fund Scheme 

St George’s is committed to providing opportunities for staff to develop the skills they need to be successful in their role and to further develop their careers. A range of training opportunities are provided via Human Resources. 

In addition, IMBE has a small annual fund, the IMBE Staff Development Funding Scheme (SDFS), to which staff can apply for funding to cover all or part of the cost of completing training and development opportunities offered by external providers. 

Making recruitment requests – Resourcing Review Committee (RRC) 

The RRC is a central St George's committee that considers staff resourcing (recruitment) requests to ensure the organisation is appropriately resourced in terms of capacity and capability, in line with organisational priorities. Managers should refer to the RRC terms of reference (Word) for details as to the circumstances in which a request to RRC is required prior to recruitment, re-organisation or changes to existing posts.

Applications for IMBE staff must follow the agreed workflow (Powerpoint). You will need to complete an application form (Word).
