New Partners in Policymaking Course: Applications Open Now!
In Control Scotland are running their internationally recognized leadership programme for parents of disabled children up to the age of 18 and disabled adults 18 and over.
This programme is a chance for participants to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to campaign and advocate for better treatment and social justice for disabled people within our society. By the end of the programme we also expect that participants will be better able to contribute to the successful implementation of self-directed support.
Participants will build up their knowledge about what is happening in Scotland and around the world to promote the inclusion of disabled people in society.
They will hear from some of the best teachers, thinkers and practitioners in the field of human services from Scotland, the rest of Europe, and North America. They will also be provided with resource materials at each session.
People living anywhere in Scotland are entitled to apply for a place. There are 40 places available in total.
The programme is made up of 8 sessions that take place over a weekend (Friday and Saturday) over an 8-month period at the Stirling Court Hotel, Stirling from November 2018 through to June 2019. Times: Friday – 11.00 am – 9.00 pm (with overnight stay & dinner included) Saturday – 9.00 am – 4.00 pm
The closing date for applications is Friday, 14th September 2018.
