The next session of the Partners in Policymaking is nearly upon us and will be taking place on Friday, 4th & Saturday, 5th December 2015. The topic for this session will be ‘Inclusive Learning – before, during and after school’. We will hear about the ways other communities and societies have made inclusive education a reality and spend time thinking about what we can do in Scotland to make our education system more inclusive.
The Partners in Policymaking Team look forward to welcoming you all back on the 4th!
As you will be aware Mary Schuh will be attending the next Partners session in December to speak about her experience of Inclusive Education. During her visit from the USA Mary will also be running 2 workshops around Inclusive Education in Edinburgh and Glasgow on 3rd December. I have attached the information flyer regarding these workshops and If you are aware of any friends, family members or colleagues who may be interested in attending one of these, please feel free to circulate the flyer.
Jaynie, Karen, Keith and June are looking forward to welcoming you all back to the Dunblane Hydro for the 2nd session of the Partners in Policymaking programme on Friday, 6th November.
