Women's Development Programme

This programme is a great opportunity for women to spend time thinking about themselves and what they want from life and work and to work with other women who are there for the same reasons.

The programme consists of 5 x 4-hour workshops, with an interval of a few weeks between each workshop and each programme can accommodate up to 24 women. Working with other participants is a key element of the programme, enabling women to extend their existing network.

Some things previous participants have said:

"I couldn't have hoped for more! I have come out of my shell and can now speak positively about myself."

"Inspiring. It made me aware of all the values and influences that affect my life. It is like a toolbox that I will be able to use now and in the future."
