The WAGE Executive Committee is committed to member’s professional development. A bursary fund supports members each year and is awarded at the discretion of the Core Executive Group, subject to available funds.
The WAGE training and development framework is aligned to the strategic and annual operating plans and comprises of:
– Free monthly virtual training sessions
– Nationally funded generic courses
– Annual bursary to attend any relevant course or undertake professional development activities
Applications for bursaries are invited from all members. Funds can be used for recognised training courses or sabbaticals to attend centres of excellence. Applicants will need to demonstrate how the training will benefit the service in Wales and have support from their clinical, academic, and managerial supervisors.
Applications should be made via the WAGE website by midnight on the 23rd of July each year (Extended to 13th of August for 2021 year). Successful applicants will be notified within 2 weeks and will not be eligible to apply again for 2 years.
