It is now possible to apply for the ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship for next year.
ICL and BIGGA are looking for five BIGGA members to enrol for the 2019 continue to Learn Scholarship . The scholarship gives fifteen hours of education from the Continue to Learn education syllabus, three nights accommodation, a visit to the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition and also includes the chance to network with fellow greenkeepers and the sponsor themselves!.
2018 recipient Daniel Ashelby, assistant greenkeeper at Wilmslow Golf Club, commented “Being an ICL Continue to Learn scholar is a very busy experience” he continued “The experience is very immersive and offers fantastic learning opportunities and is highly motivational to aspiring greenkeepers”.
Another 2018 recipient, Simon Pyett, greenkeeper at Halesworth Golf Club, commented that the scholarship has helped him to realise that he is “now certain that my passion for ecology and nature sit squarely alongside my passion for greenkeeping” he continued that he “would love to be at the leading edge of such an approach to greenkeeping going forwards”.
The application process invites applicants to think about why BTME and Continue to Learn are vital to the industry, how it will help them achieve their career goals and why they should be awarded the scholarship.
