IMPACT Bursary Programme – applications open!

After a successful launch breakfast last week, we are pleased to invite applications for our new IMPACT Bursary Programme. If you are working with people age 0-25 in London, through music, you can apply for a bursary of up to £600 to develop your evaluation and impact knowledge, skills and confidence. The bursaries can cover a range of activities from attending relevant training to receiving evaluation coaching, or doing a small piece of action research focused on impact measurement. Sound Connections can connect you to different impact and evaluation experts to support bursary activity.

Evaluation and impact is a hot topic; it is important for improving our work, creating better outcomes for the children and young people we work with, and making a strong case for music education and opportunities. Nonetheless music, arts and youth organisations often battle with limited capacity and resource, and struggle to find evaluation methods and tools that are efficient but effective. Different funders require different types reporting and juggling multiple requirements can be challenging.

It is with this in mind that at the heart of the IMPACT programme is the opportunity to apply for a training and development bursary. Every project and organisation’s needs are different, so the bursaries can be used to find the most appropriate support for you – this is about personalised learning rather than one size fits all.

What is on offer?

  • Bursaries of up to £600 in support of developing your impact measurement skills, practice and tools
  • Advice and guidance, including connecting you with experts with skills and experience relevant to your needs

What types of activity can the bursaries support?

Activities relating directly to developing impact measurement skills, practice and tools, e.g:

Activities linked, but not directly related, to impact measurement, e.g:

  • Needs analysis and mapping
  • Consultation with participants

These are just some examples, if you think you would like to apply but want to check your eligibility or discuss your options, please contact info@sound-connections.org.uk to arrange a time to speak with a member of our team.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 9 March 2018.
