This is your time to contribute! There will be 9 breakout sessions running throughout the day. Our in-person and online delegates will be invited to choose which 3 sessions you would like to attend. As these sessions are designed to be run as workshops, involving delegates in discussion and activities, there will be a maximum number permitted in each session.
You do not have to register for Breakout Sessions in advance, however the in-person delegates at the venue will be asked to sign-up for your sessions when you arrive at the venue.
Confirmed Breakout Sessions So Far…
NEW: We are teaming up with the Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities (SCLD) during Scottish Learning Disability Week 2022! SCLD will be hosting a panel of employees with learning disabilities who will tell you about their experience of work, followed by a Question-and-Answer session. Our online delegates will be able to join their session and have your questions about employing people with learning disabilities answered.
NEW: Flexible Working in the Post-Covid Economy
Who wants flexible working and what types of flexible working do people have? How can flexible working benefit employees and businesses? In this session, led by Lisa Gallagher, Co-Founder and Director of Flexibility Works, you will discuss the key challenges in your business right now and how flexible working might help. You will also have the chance to find out about flex in action!
The Supported Employment Guarantee
This is the moment to campaign for the services we need to ensure everyone has the chance of a working life, if they want it. This workshop will look at a set of principles our members and stakeholders can sign up to, to increase the quality, availability and impact of supported employment in Scotland. How do we make this a reality? Join this workshop to be part of the discussion.
