REPs are delighted to fully support the Exercise, Movement and Dance (EMD) Academy’s launch of their new training grant opportunity - the Open Bursary Scheme. The scheme aims to offer financial support to passionate individuals hoping to train or develop their career in teaching Exercise, Movement and Dance.


Commenting on the launch, Head of Memberships for REPs, Greg Small said:


“In the current financial climate, it’s fantastic that the Exercise, Movement and Dance Academy have launched new bursary scheme as it means those who perhaps couldn’t afford to take up a qualification now can.”


He continued to say:


“I would highly encourage anyone wanting to take an exercise, movement and dance qualification to apply for the bursary.”


The bursary is available to anyone wanting to take an exercise, movement and dance qualification or course so long as EMDP are happy it’s of a good quality - we want the best for you after all. Please see the criteria document for more details.


You can apply for up to £100 towards Continued Professional Development (CPD)/ short courses and workshops and up to £150 towards recognised qualifications. EMD Academy will pay up to these amounts or 50% of the cost (whichever is lower).


Applicants can use the bursary in addition to other bursaries or funding they may have found, like Government Grants or Coaching Bursaries from your local County Sports Partnership for example.


All teachers who receive the bursary will also get a year’s free affiliation toThe EMD Community, where you get all of your teaching essentials all in one place.
