The delegates, a mix of Dispensing Opticians and Optometrists, bring a broad and diverse range of backgrounds and experience. This diversity brings added value to the programme, allowing delegates to learn from each other as well as from the course leaders Gill Brabner and Jane Gray.

LOCSU Digital Learning and Support Officer Simone Mason said “We are delighted that we have such a strong set of delegates embarking on this year’s course.  Over the years, the programme has helped many individuals to develop new skills, allowing them to take on leadership roles across the sector.  We look forward to supporting this year’s cohort and watching their development into the leaders of the future”.

Applications for the 2021 course will open at the end of 2020.
