Herefordshire Music Fund Bursary - Tutor Reimbursement

The online reimbursement form is to be used by instrumental/vocal tutors of young people in receipt of a bursary from Herefordshire Music Fund.

Tutors must have registered with Herefordshire Music Fund before submitting a claim. Tutors need only register once. 

Reimbursement forms should be submitted retrospectively six times a year at the end of each half-term (October, February, May) and full term (December, March/April and July). Please indicate on the claim form whether your claim is for a half-term or full term. A separate form should be completed for each pupil.  

At the end of each full term (December, March/April, July) tutors must complete a brief report for each pupil. This is to ensure that HMF funds are being allocated appropriately. The report consists of tick-box drop down menus with the option for a comment. Should a report not be submitted the award of a bursary may be withdrawn. 

Bursary reimbursement payments are calculated at an hourly rate of £29.00 and assume a 20-minute individual lesson equating to £9.70. If a different hourly rate has been agreed in advance, please indicate on the form. For lessons of longer duration and/or paired or group lessons please indicate the rate as agreed when the lessons were set up.

Bursaries fund up to 32 lessons per academic year. Please note that reimbursement can only be made for lessons taught.
