The Worshipful Company of Launderers is again offering travel scholarships through its Launderers Education Trust Fund Travelling Scholarship. For 2016, applications are invited from the drycleaning industry and the sponsor is DaneRealstar.
Four scholarships are available and each successful candidate will receive a grant of up to £1,000 towards the cost of subsistence and travel for a four-day tour of Italy to visit selected drycleaning and finishing equipment plants and drycleaning processing units between 9 and 13 May.
The scholarship is open to senior supervisors and to trainee/junior managers who can demonstrate their ability and experience within the drycleaning sector. A committee of the Worshipful Company of Launderers will review applications.
Candidates will be expected to produce a written report, suitable for publication, on the innovations and examples of best practice they have seen.
Application forms can be obtained from Stuart Boyd, chairman of the Worshipful Company of Launderers education committee (email:
