Support for career development

With NHS training budgets frozen, physiotherapists, assistants and students might like to pursue money from other sources to help them out with their continuing professional development and education.

A number of schemes exist to support qualified, associate and student CSP members. Depending on the scheme, the money may cover anything from course fees to travel expenses.

The Charitable Trust can chip in for fees, books, travel and subsistence for nationally accredited courses such as higher degrees, clinical modules, vocational qualifications, access and Open University courses, BTEC awards and A-levels.

Student members are eligible to apply for scholarships to help fund overseas electives, from the Joe Jeans Memorial Fund.

Qualified members have even more routes to financial support. Those giving presentations at conferences at home and abroad can apply to the UK Presentation Fund and the International Lecture Fund for help with expenses. The Baroness Robson Travel Scholarship helps members travelling overseas for educational or research purposes to develop their practice. CSP members conducting workshops or seminars in developing countries to support the education of the country's physiotherapists may wish to apply to the Barbican 91 Fund. Applications are also open to non-UK physiotherapists wanting to undertake a course of study in the UK to support their country's professional development.


For details about the wide range of funding available for members and how to apply, phone the Society's CPD administrator Safina Razzak on 020 7306 6608, email, or visit
