Application deadline for the Icon Tru Vue CPD grants programme approaching

The deadline for applications for the Icon Tru Vue CPD Grants Programme is on 30th April 2020 at 9am. Whilst conferences and workshops might well not be on the cards at the moment, there are still lots of other things that you can be doing to support your continuing professional development.

The criteria are very flexible, the important thing is that you can demonstrate how your chosen activity will support you in your continuing professional development. This could include online training and distance learning as well as using this as an opportunity to undertake research.
