Stakeholder Forum

We work in partnership with a range of stakeholders from across the public sector.

It enables stakeholders to influence the delivery and direction of our professional learning, training and coaching offer to ensure high quality, effective services are provided to meet the needs of the public and third sectors in Scotland.
