Unique Opportunity for Disabled Students

23/05/2011

Common Purpose Frontrunner course – in association with Santander

Plenty of students with physical and learning disabilities realise their full potential, enjoy their education experience and pursue careers and leadership roles in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. For some however, the barriers are too great. The leadership development organisation Common Purpose (in association with Santander) are aiming to challenge those statistics by providing the opportunity for 240 disabled students to develop their leadership skills and knowledge, enabling them to break through barriers and pursue leadership roles beyond their higher education.

Frontrunner is a FREE three-day residential course which is a fantastic way for participants to experience at first-hand how leadership operates in various working environments and explore the qualities required to take up a leadership role. In January 2011, 40 participants took part in the first course from Universities all over the UK. Applications are now being accepted for the second course which takes place from 6-8 July in London.

When: 6-8 July

Where: Central London

Application deadline: 1 June

Cost to attend: FREE! Places on the course are fully sponsored by Santander and Common Purpose

Who should apply: Disabled students currently in higher or further education in the UK. Ideally, participants will have demonstrated leadership achievements, big or small.
