Last call for Printing Charity grant entries

The Printing Charity has called for last minute entries for the 2019 Print Futures Awards which support routes in to the print industry.

Open to UK residents aged between 18 and 30, grants of up to £1,500 are available for those seeking further support in workplace skills and routes into employment within the UK printing, paper, packaging, publishing and graphic arts sectors.

The awards are open to apprentices and those studying for NVQs in print-related organisations; people already working in print looking to develop their skills; and those completing a recognised UK qualification with the intention of taking a role within print in 2019.

It’s an easy online application, asking people to show us a clear plan with costings of how a grant will help them

Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity’s chief executive, says: “We have had some great applications already and each year we do a shout-out before the closing date to remind people that there’s still time to apply. It’s an easy online application, asking people to show us a clear plan with costings of how a grant will help them progress in their career.

“Things we will consider supporting are post education internships; relevant training courses; professional accreditation; and kit and equipment where applicants can demonstrate they are beneficial to their studies, training, and development.”

The closing date for applications is midnight on Monday, April 29th, 2019. More information is available on The Printing Charity website.
