LCGB is delighted to offer members & associate members the opportunity to apply for one of the two scholarship places for this event. Preference will be given to aspiring IBCLCs.
This funding reflects our commitment to reducing barriers to our profession in the UK, supporting aspiring IBCLCs, especially those who are not health professionals, and those from groups which are under-represented, thus encouraging greater diversity.
We will be looking for applicants who fulfil several criteria.
The first and essential one is membership of LCGB, and our brief is to give preference to candidates working towards certification or re-certification.
We are also looking for readiness to write about the experience of attending this study day, for involvement with LCGB, (or willingness to become involved), for evidence of offering support and benefit to breastfeeding mothers, for doing this on a voluntary basis, and also for a clear idea of how the candidate might expect to utilise the knowledge she would acquire at the study day.
Deadline for applications by 2nd April, 2016
All applicants will be informed of the decision by 9th April, 2016. The early bird rate will be extended for unsuccessful applicants. If the successful applicants have already booked and paid for their Conference places, refunds will be made.
