Congratulations to Andrew Pearson on receiving the Postgraduate Bursary
Individuals looking to undertake the BPIF MSc in Management can apply to have a significant amount of their fees paid, thanks to a £6000 Bursary from The Stationers' Foundation, funded by The Printing Charity.
The Foundation, which forms the charitable arm of The Stationers' Company, offer the Postgraduate Bursary Scheme to either a single student or to be shared between several students for whom funding would be a barrier.
Andrew Pearson, a previous winner of the Kathy Woodward Award for Learning, said of his achievement, "I feel incredibly humble and proud in equal measure that the panel selected me if I'm honest. I am really pleased I'm able to carry on with my educational path without the financial worry of how I would fund it. I'm also looking forward to being an active member of The Stationers for the next three years and the experiences I will gain from that."
The MSc, run in partnership with the Management Development Centre (MDC), is aimed at those in print with at least 5 years' experience in a management role, or with full membership of a professional institute wanting to take their leadership skills to the next level. As the natural next step after undertaking the BPIF Level 5 Leadership and Management Course, it usually costs £6340 + VAT to complete.
The course, which can be completed in as little as twelve months, if students are full members of a professional institute, is a fast-track top up Masters designed to provide minimal disruption to the working week. Alongside a dissertation and two residential weekends a year, students are supported through the MDC's online support group.
