You will complete and submit an application form (available from November 6, 2021 via this website) which will invite you to detail:
- Your experiences, enthusiasms, aspirations and career plans that you feel make you suited to take on a role as a champion of digital change
- The problem that you would like to explore and address in your time as a Topol Digital Fellow.
As part of the application process, you will need to supply evidence that you have the support of your training programme director or supervisor and/or a senior manager in your organisation for the required protected time. This confirmation is vital as a £15,000 bursary will be provided to your organisation.
If your application is successful, before you begin the programme you will need to supply details of a project sponsor who will champion and support you within the organisation. They should be able to advise and support you to navigate local governance structures as well as support you to deliver your project.
If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to an online interview. You will then be notified of the outcome of your interview shortly afterwards.
