We  will be rotating  the meetings between the Hope Valley area and Buxton (with the occasional alternative).

  • Peak Region RPIOL Bursary Scheme
  • The Peak Region IOL is pleased to offer a Bursary scheme to support regional members who wish to undertake the RPIOL accreditation scheme. You will be asked to show that you are willing to commit to regional events and meetings over the next twelve months.

    Applicants will be asked to show that they are ready to benefit from the RP process, that they will be or are willing to have active involvement with IOL regionally, and that they would otherwise bear the full cost of gaining RP. We also need to be satisfied that the applicants are likely to complete the process. Applications will be considered by nominated representatives of the regional committee. The regional committee will decide whether to offer a bursary, which may be up to 50% of the current application fees.
