King’s Development Award

You can apply for a King’s Development Award (KDA) to support your continuing Professional Development (CPD) at the Trust. It is open to applications three times a year.

Funded by King’s College Hospital Charity, the award covers up to half of the cost of a course, conference or study visit not included in the Education Contracts with the NHS London-approved universities and which your division is unable to support financially via any other funds.

To be eligible, you must:

  • have been an employee of the Trust for two years or more
  • be supported by your line manager
  • be able to demonstrate how the training will develop your skills and help your department or service.

KDA applications are handled by the education and development team, email kch-tr.EDT@nhs.net.
