In March we were delighted to see the restart of the Graduate Diploma in Low Vision Rehabilitation at Glasgow Caledonian University. 20 students from across Scotland have enrolled. This much-needed boost for the workforce in Scotland has come about with the hard work of a consortium of organisations: The Alliance, Visibility Scotland, Sight Scotland, RNIB, RWPN and Glasgow Caledonian University. We are all very grateful to The Alliance and Thomas Pocklington Trust for their significant support to subsidise the fees for students. We hope this is the start of further learning opportunities and professional development around sensory loss in Scotland.
We wish the students and the mentors all the best.
