cpp Seminars Scotland is an independent social enterprise whose main purpose is to design and deliver 1/2 day seminars on topical themes and create networking opportunities covering a range of social policy issues. Our seminars will be more focused than conferences with agenda’s designed to allow for greater interactive discussion. As a social enterprise we will reinvest profits to keep delegates fees as low as possible, particularly for third sector and community organisations. We also aim to deliver seminars at regional locations to help reduce the time commitment for those attending as well as saving employers and organisations travel & accommodation costs.
All of our seminars will be information led and interactive to stimulate discussion, encouraging the sharing of knowledge, ideas and good practice. Each of our event’s will feature specialist professionals and practitioners who will be tasked with passing on their knowledge and expertise to add value for participants. As well as organising our own events cpp Seminars Scotland will seek to work with others to build strategic partnerships in all sectors to ensure that essential training, information dissemination and networking is maintained. ‘cpp Seminars Scotland’s core business is designing and delivering bespoke seminars across a range of social policy areas with the clear objective of Connecting Policy to Practice’.
Please contact us if you are interested in partnering or supporting any of our events or would like to hear our ideas for up and coming seminar themes.’
