Financial Support for Local CET Events

Each year DOCET sets aside a proportion of its available funds in order to provide some financial assistance to help enable CET to be delivered locally throughout the UK, in the form of lectures, workshops, conferences and peer discussions.  Local optometric groups who need some financial help to meet the costs of hiring a room or paying for lecturers or speakers can apply for these DOCET funds.  Funds can also be made available to commercial providers of optometric CET.  

DOCET can contribute towards costs for the following items:

  • Lecturer/speaker fees (cap applies)
  • Lead facilitator fees for peer discussion (caps apply) 
  • Reasonable lecturer/speaker travel and accommodation costs
  • Room and equipment hire costs
  • Payments to patients (cap applies)
  • Reasonable event advertising costs (eg. mailshot)

Find out HOW TO APPLY.

Read the Guidelines & Guidance Notes (updated Feb 2014) for full details of the process.   

You can also opt to register as a user, giving you access to improved information and facilities.  Go to the Funding Area to find out more.

We welcome feedback and comments from CET event organisers on their experience of using our online system.  This will help us to make continuous improvements.  Please email your comments to
