The Bendon Bursary  – 5th January 2018

The date above is when Chris Bendon, a founder TCHC trustee, passed away.
After a career in education that spanned over 30 years, the trustees wanted to mark the anniversary of Chris’ death with this initiative – one that he certainly would have endorsed.

The BENDON BURSARY is an annual award aimed at supporting the continuing professional development of staff at TCHC. TCHC staff who are already registered on a course of study will be able to apply for a financial contribution towards their course fees on an annual basis.

Trustees and management hope that the BENDON BURSARY will help to hold on to our existing committed staff and also to attract high calibre staff in the future.  Even though salaries at the Centre are not as competitive as we would wish, staff are committed to their community and are attracted to the Centre’s mission that NO-ONE IS TURNED AWAY. The trustees believe that this initiative is a very practical way to assist our truly dedicated staff who seek to improve their professional qualifications.

The deadline for applications each year is March 31st.
