Supporting members' career development

Funding is available from a number of sources to support the continuing professional development of both qualified physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants who have been CSP members for more than two years.

The CSP Charitable Trust supports members undertaking formal, nationally-accredited courses, such as higher degrees, accredited clinical courses, national and Scottish vocational qualifications, Access and Open University courses, BTEC awards and A-levels. Money is provided for course fees and other expenses, such as travel, books and subsistence. A number of other funding options are open to qualified members in addition to these. The UK Presentation Fund makes awards to members giving presentations at UK conferences, while the International Lecture Fund can provide funding for UK-based members presenting at conferences overseas. Awards are available each year through the Baroness Robson Travel Scholarship. This helps members travelling overseas for educational or research purposes to develop their practice. CSP members who have been invited to conduct workshops or seminars in developing countries to support the education of the country's physiotherapists may wish to apply to the Barbican 91 Fund. Non-UK physiotherapists wanting to undertake a course of study in the UK to support their country's professional development are also invited to apply for the annual award. The deadline for receipt of applications for the next funding round for all of the above is Tuesday March 1.
