Every year the our Professional Development Award enables individuals working in Gibraltar to undertake professional development courses that will provide a benefit to the local community. Despite the challenges presented by Covid19, we received some excellent applications from those determined to continue their professional development online and remotely where necessary.This year we have awarded nine Professional Development Awards, including six individuals who wish to enhance their skills through the following courses:

* Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling
* MSc Advanced Clinical Practice in Physiotherapy
* Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher training course
* Sensory Integration Practicioner training
* CPCAB Level 3 Counselling
* Interpersonal Mediation Practicioners Certificate

In addition, we will be supporting one representative from Clubhouse Gibraltar and two from the Citizens Advice Bureau to complete the following training with the aim of improving their services to the community:

* Mental Health First Aid Instructor – Adult & Youth
* Interpersonal Mediation Practicioners Certificate

Our Professional Development Awards provide financial support where there is no funding available from the Government or employers. Recipients of the funding must be working in areas that directly benefit those living and working in Gibraltar. We would like to congratulate all the recipients and wish them all the best in their training and development.
