The Richard Mintz Bursary Fund


Are you looking to register for and undertake a training course but are prevented from doing so due to the expense? If so, our vocational training bursary fund can help!


Perhaps your first career is no longer available and you are looking to retrain in a new career pathway? Maybe you recognise that your skills need a little updating in order to stay competitive in today’s world? Perhaps you are entering the world of work for the first time and your qualifications are not sufficient to give you that all-important start? Or maybe there is another reason you need to train so you can earn your living?


Vocational training courses funded by the Richard Mintz Bursary Fund will help you develop essential skills needed in today’s competitive workplace, boost your chances of finding employment or nurturing a successful business, and expand your potential choice of work.


Applicants will work with Work Avenue advisers to ensure that their chosen pathway will suit their skills, needs and preferences.
