BF have a series of funded GBR development programmes which are designed to provide additional education and development opportunities to individuals who have the motivation and opportunity to pursue a career to represent GBR at the highest international level. This can be as a fencer, coach, referee or official/team managers.
In order to create the strongest GBR squads to ultimately achieve the best team results possible we need to make the most efficient use of the limited funds that are available. Therefore these programmes will work together – often using GBR Development Camps as a mechanism to provide education and development opportunities to participants in multiple GBR Development Programmes.
All of these programmes are currently publicly funded and therefore the purpose, goals and activities of the individual programmes will be agreed with the funding bodies to deliver to the aims and objectives of both BF and the relevant funding body. As such delivery (by BF) and participation (by individuals) in these programmes come with accountabilities and responsibilities.
None of these programmes are intended to fund, provide or replace the bulk of the training and hard work that is required week in week out over a period of years to make it at the highest levels of international competing, coaching or officiating.
