The application process for the September 2024 Cohort is open from 12th March to 19th April 2024 for Leading to Change applicants and from 12th March to 26th April 2024 for applicants from the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), the third sector, NHS Scotland, and partner organisations.

Spaces are limited in each organisation and cohort so please take the time when filling in your application to fully describe your situation.
Dates to be confirmed. Each event will run from 09:30 to 16:00.
Other than the induction and consolidation event which will be set, you will choose the date options for the remaining events in your application form. You will be required to remain with your chosen group for each of the modules.
In response to participant feedback, an element of face-to-face attendance will be offered to the next cohort. All participants will attend the consolidation event in person. Applicants can choose in their application form to attend a further two events in person (module 1 and the skills development workshop). Once a group is allocated to you, you cannot change part-way through the programme or join in-person events remotely, so consider carefully what is right for you before submitting your preferences on your application. Please note there is no option to attend the programme online only. Check with your organisation before submitting your application if you will require payment for overnight accommodation, travel, and subsistence costs.
