NBIA Bursary for Educational Innovation

Arrow In this section

What is it?

The NBIA has recently been awarded money from Health Education England (HEE) to support innovative educational projects specifically related to breast imaging training. We are seeking applications from all members of the multidisciplinary team and are very keen to attract bids from across the country. These projects can either be delivered at a local or national level.

Who can apply?

Anyone who wishes to suggest a project. We would welcome applications from radiographers, assistant practitioners/associate apprentices, administrative and clerical staff, universities as well as doctors working in breast imaging (including breast surgeons/radiologists/breast clinicians) and also applications from trainees will be considered. We are conscious of the clinical pressures posed by the pandemic and these funds could for example be used to backfill staff or provide additional support or training for trainers.

How much is it worth?

The grants are worth up to £10,000 and we wish to distribute them as widely as possible across England.

How do I apply?

Please complete the application form and send it to breastacademy@mft.nhs.uk

What is the timescale?

Please submit bids by the end of March 2021 and funds will be available from April 2021.
