As an employer, what are the benefits to my organisation?
If your employee is offered a funded Fellowship the CLP will invest the equivalent of around £40k in their development as a cultural leader, with support from our funders.
The benefits to employers include a refreshed, more skilled and more confident member of staff, with enhanced knowledge and networks which can help strengthen the organisation.
As an employer of a potential UK Fellow, what are the financial implications for my organisation?
Employers of funded UK Fellows who are not supported by a Consortium-supported or Dance Fellowship, will be eligible to claim up to £15,000 as a contribution for the periods when the Fellow is away from work focusing on their Fellowship, on the condition that they provide evidence that they will continue to pay the Fellow's salary and benefits throughout the Fellowship. In addition, all Fellows receive funding for their individual learning programme, which includes mentoring, coaching, participation in group workshops and a tuition budget to cover secondment expenses, course fees and study visits.
Some Fellowships are supported by a consortium of cultural organisations. In this instance the employer will cover the costs of the Fellows' agreed salary, employer's National Insurance, any agreed pension contribution and other current benefits and entitlements throughout the course of the Fellowship and any back-fill within the organisation.
Will it be possible for more than one employee from a single organisation to be chosen as a Fellow?
