Liz Ahrends Bursary

Liz Ahrends Award 2010

The Liz Ahrends Award is intended to contribute to the work of specialist tutors who are supporting students with specific learning difficulties. It was set up in memory of Liz Ahrends, a founder member of ADSHE, who championed the work of freelance tutors in the development and delivery of effective independent support. The Bursary is in recognition of the profound influence that one-to-one support has on the lives of students with SpLD and supporting the continued professional development of ADSHE members.

Formerly awarded to assist a freelance tutor to develop resources or carry out research (most of which are published on our website), this was changed in 2015 as a bursary to cover some of the costs of attending the ADSHE Annual Conference.

The Liz Ahrends Bursary is open to ADSHE members who have not attended Conference within the last 2 years.

Members are invited to apply for an  assisted place at the ADSHE Annual Conference, which is held in June each year.

•      Why I want to attend the ADSHE Conference.
•      The current barriers I face in attending the ADSHE Conference
