Your chance to gain world-leading education with ICL

1 July 2019 Announcement


Are you interested in attending Continue to Learn at BTME 2020, but put off by the cost?

The ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship offers five BIGGA members the opportunity to attend the world‑leading Continue to Learn at BTME 2020 education programme.

The scholarship, worth approximately £500, comprises three nights’ hotel accommodation and up to 15 hours of education.

Jorge Manso was an ICL Scholar at Continue to Learn 2019 and said: "Our club has a limited budget, meaning I wouldn’t have been able to attend BTME this year. I have been there before, but nothing compared to what I experienced this year. The accommodation was amazing, the seminars and workshops that I attended were all very interesting and inspiring, but the best part was meeting the rest of the scholars and the ICL team. At the end of the day, BTME is all about meeting new and old friends."

“I would encourage people to take advantage of every opportunity BIGGA has to offer and this is one of the best! It will only take a few minutes to apply, but if you put a little bit of effort in to it, the reward is enormous.”

The applicant must be a BIGGA member from one of the following membership categories: Full Member (categories 1A or 1B); Assistant Greenkeeper (in training)(categories 2A or 2B).

Applicants should be CPD Active and able to attend BTME and Continue to Learn 2020, taking place 19 to 23 January 2020.

Successful applicants will be expected to meet the cost of travel, meals and other personal expenses.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 31 July 2019 at 5pm.

BIGGA is grateful to our Partner ICL for the continued support of its members through schemes such as the Continue to Learn Scholarship
