The grant for the installation of an all-weather astroturf pitch was made available by The Football Foundation, in partnership with the DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport), the FA (Football Association), and the Premier League. The application process can take up to 12 months to complete. With just two months until the deadline, Wellfield needed support from experts in securing large grant applications, so they contacted Eduprise.
Jonathan Coates, school business manager at Wellfield School, said: “I contacted Eduprise for some help and was put in touch with their managing director, Ryan Green. Within a week he was on-site to formulate a plan and outline each stage of the process.”
Following the initial meeting, Ryan and Jonathan began developing an engaging project narrative that would convince those reviewing the applications that Wellfield was the right school to be awarded the grant. As Jonathan provided the research and data to convince the judges, Ryan harnessed his depth of knowledge in the field of grant applications to produce a submission that maximised Wellfield’s chances of securing their funding target.
