The Company is proud to maintain its close relationship with the plastering and drylining industry. As part of the Plaisterers’ Company commitment to training and life-long learning, the Plaisterers’ Livery offers bursaries to apprentices and young students entering the industry.
Bursary values are up to £500 per applicant, however, larger sums may be awarded in individual cases if merited. The beneficiaries will probably be students currently undergoing training in the sector but may also be established practitioners who wish to enhance their knowledge or experience.
Typically, applications might be for travel expenses to support a course of learning abroad; fees for existing courses where no other support is available; wage subsidy to enable a student to pursue extra curricular skills; funding to a mentor to support achievement of advanced qualifications or costs towards enhanced disabled access to training.
The Industry Committee will give consideration to any application that supports and maintains the quality and diversity of plastering and drylining skills in the UK.
