As part of the BADC’s plan to promote and encourage Diversity and Inclusivity within our society, we have created a fund for students, current and future, from underrepresented groups. This fund has been set up to encourage those whose personal circumstances may put them at a disadvantage when accessing training. We are doing this to ensure the BADC is more reflective of modern society. Underrepresented groups can include but are not limited to: ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+, Neurodivergent, D/deaf and Disabled People and those with Learning Disabilities.
This fund is to assist a new or active member who wishes to gain qualifications with the BADC. This can be for a Standard certification course, or Further Weapons training towards Intermediate and Advanced accreditation.
Up to £150 credit towards your chosen BADC Certification Course. The successful applicant will also receive one year free Swashbuckler membership (this will be in addition to the free first year offered to a student who has consolidated at Standard level). Bursary amounts will be considered on a case by case basis and within the budgetary capabilities of BADC within that term. Amounts are intended to be a contribution to costs and not necessarily to cover the entire activity.
