National Conference 2015

Lead Scotland’s National Conference 2015

Can we make things better? YES WE CAN!! Delivering positive outcomes for disabled and disadvantaged learners.


The key focus for this year’s conference was around creative and inclusive approaches towards delivering positive outcomes for disabled and disadvantaged learners. This included a wide range of ‘positive outcomes’:

  • Progression into and through various types of learning
  • Moving on to employment or training
  • Volunteering
  • Developing various ‘soft skills’, such as becoming more independent, developing self-confidence and communication skills, independent travel, improved well-being, etc.
