Engender training for women -  aimed at  making a difference

       Do you want to make a difference - to have your case heard and listened to?
       Are you active in the voluntary or community sector in either a paid or voluntary capacity? 
       Are you concerned about issues that particularly affect women experiencing social exclusion?

Engender's latest training course follows on from the highly successful Engendering Change - Making a Difference training courses.

Feedback on the courses:
"I'm more able to speak my mind"
"The course gave me the confidence to engage with decision makers"
"I have learnt to focus better"

Who is the training for?
       women involved with small and medium sized organisations in the voluntary sector. 
       women working with women experiencing social exclusion

What will the training achieve?  The training aims to provide women with an understanding of decision making processes, and how to make a case, influence, lobby and campaign effectively.

Approach:  The training will draw upon your experiences of trying to make a difference- both positive and negative.  You will be expected to identify a real area / issue where you want to make a difference before the course starts.

More about the course:  Each day covers different areas and you need to be able to attend all 4 days to get the most out of the training.

The next 'Making a Difference' (4-day) course will be held in Edinburgh on:
Wednesday 17th and 24th September 2003 and
Friday 3rd and 10th October 2003

We particularly welcome applications from groups who are under-represented in the decision making process.

Costs:   Training is FREE and there will be childcare and travel allowances.
Places:  Up to 14 places are available on each course
