Funding for High Achieving State School Students to Explore US Study

The Sutton Trust has announced that it will be inviting applications to its US Programme from the 5th November 2022.

The programme offers high achieving state school students the opportunity to explore studying in the United States to experience what it’s like being an international student in the US. The programme will cover all costs, including travel, residential events, accommodation and food.

As in previous years, students are scheduled to visit the US in July/August. However, due to COVID-19, the health and safety situation is constantly evolving. This may mean that plans may need to be adjusted and possibly deliver US weeks in a virtual format.

The programme is open to students from low or middle-income families who are currently in Year 12 in England and Wales.

The deadline for applications will be the 15th January 2023.

How To Build A Learning And Development Plan

The success of an organisation depends on its staff and their ability to do their jobs. An organisation’s responsibility to support staff to do their  jobs does not end with the induction period, but continues throughout their time at the organisation.

A successful organisation understands that they are equipping their staff with what they need in order to their jobs through learning and development. In this article Annette Lewis, Director of Services at DSC and Cathy Shimmin, Senior Training Consultant at DSC discuss how to put together a successful learning and development plan.
