Age Scotland dementia training calendar

To browse dates and to access the booking system for all of our workshops, please go to the links at the bottom of this page.   

We currently run three training programmes:

New in 2022: As part of our dementia inclusion training programme, look out for our monthly 'coffee coversations'. Join us with a cuppa (and cake?) and spend an hour chatting and learning about that month's topic.

At present, all our 'live' courses are delivered online, via the videoconference platform, Zoom. We will let you know when face-to-face sessions are likely to resume.

Bookings for our self-study courses for carers are open at any time. Each module takes between 2 and 4 hours to complete at a time which suits you. You can save and return to your work as often as you need to and course tutors are available for consultation throughout.

All courses are free of charge to community groups, organisations and individuals. For any queries, please email dementiatraining@agescotland.org.uk
