Young People Bursaries
Quaystage Training Ltd provides bursaries to young people, enabling them to participate in voyages of discovery. These include 10-day adventure voyages and extended voyages of up to 3 months. These are life-changing programmes - promoting multi-cultural experiences and encouraging personal development.
Young people are recommended to us from various youth organisations such as Connexions, the Children’s Society, Guides, Scouts and Youth Centres and all cadet forces.
We have worked closely with schools on a national scale.
The cost of a 10-day voyage, including insurance, passport and travel to and from the ship, is in the region of £1,500. A 14 day Sail Camp in the region of £2,700.
All young people are encouraged to raise a significant contribution to their voyage fee under the guidance of our office team and volunteers. This is the first step for a young person, generating a sense of achievement and inclusion before the voyage even begins.
Meeting the cost of training
Quaystage Training is a not for profit company working as a social enterprise supporting the training of young people.
We keep the costs of our course as low as we can but there are many young people that are not in the position to be able to afford them. We provide bursary funds to help these young people meet the costs. These bursary funds are provided from a company bonded account.
Bursary funds and legacy funding is an important part of our whole company ethos and we are always on the look-out for more assistance in funding these.
Company Sponsorship packages are available along with opportunities to donate towards or provide a bursary to a deserving young person. In providing funds to us in this way you will be providing a young person with training that creates future opportunities for them, thus for many changing their lives forever.
Contact us to find out how you could change a life of a young person.
Providing a grant
Any contribution, however small, will help us to offer this life-changing opportunity to another young person. In return Quaystage Training Ltd. will actively highlight any contribution made in future press releases, associated press articles and on our website.
