A Right to Learn Project: Paid Lived Experience Opportunity for Disabled People

Lead Scotland

Lead Scotland is looking to work with five disabled adult learners to co-produce a new guide to accessing community based adult learning opportunities. Participants must self identify as disabled and be currently or have been previously involved in a community based adult learning opportunity. Lead Scotland will then work together to gather your ideas and experiences about what disabled people need to know to successfully access community based adult learning opportunities. They will then generate and develop these ideas for our new guide. Participants will receive training on disability equality and will also have the opportunity to hear from adult learning professionals during focus group sessions.
