Free Professional Learning & Development Event

Free Half Day Event: Professional Development & Learning Pathway – Independent Advocacy Scotland – 20th April 2017 @ The Advocacy Project, Cumbrae House, Glasgow – 11.00am – 2.30pm – Lunch & Refreshments Provided. Exclusive to SIAA Full & Affiliate 1 Members.

The Advocacy Project is hosting an event themed around professional learning & development. This follows on from the SIAA national conference discussion in November where The Advocacy Project led a workshop discussing professional development for independent advocates and CPD for the advocacy sector.
The workshop was extremely well attended for both sessions indicating a high level of interest amongst members, and we wish to offer your organisation the opportunity to meet up and progress that discussion.

We wish to offer the opportunity to like-minded advocacy organisations to collaborate in taking this agenda forward. It would be beneficial if delegates attending this event have the authority to represent and speak for their organisation.

We have identified 2 themes to try and focus upon and are open to suggestions from you of others:

• Accredited Qualification Development in Advocacy Practice
• Establishing a ‘Community of Practice’ aimed at promoting learning excellence across the sector

The discussions will be introduced by:

• Teresa Dolan – Training Enterprise & Development – Continuous Professional Development for Independent Advocacy.
• Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework – What is Qualification Credit Rating & its benefits?
• Gerry McGuire – L&D Manager @ The Advocacy Project – The Development & Roll Out of the Professional Practice Award in Advocacy Practice.

Please note this event is for registered full SIAA & affiliate 1 member organisations only.

If you are interested in attending can you please confirm by 14th April to:
