It was a night of celebrations and fireworks in the nation's capital for the School of Applied social Studies and Aberdeen Business School in November.
Representatives from both Schools attended the prestigious National Training Awards (Scotland) in Edinburgh Castle on 5th November to receive the 'Partnership and Collaboration' award. This was awarded in recognition of a bespoke training programme created in collaboration with The Taylor Clarke Partnership Ltd, a Glasgow based leadership and organisational development consultancy.
'Leading to Deliver' is a postgraduate course designed specifically to help Social Services managers across Scotland focus on leadership, change, service delivery and partnership working. The programme tackles leadership and management capabilities enabling managers to become competent and confident leaders.
Professor Joyce Lishman, Head of the School of Applied Social Studies commented:
"Five hundred managers in Social Services successfully undertook the course, and feedback has been extremely positive. The collaboration between the Business School, the School of Applied Social Studies and The Taylor Clarke Partnership has been innovative and highly successful".
Laurence Clarke, Managing Director at the Taylor Clarke Partnership Ltd said:
"Our partnership with Robert Gordon University has helped us to create a really unique training programme, and the support which they have provided us has helped to give us a different vision."
