Scope Role Models

We’re working with secondary schools to help them create inclusive learning environments and start conversations about disability.

What is Scope Role Models?

  • One hour workshops for secondary school students, hosted by Scope and a disabled role model. 
  • In a relaxed style, we talk about issues like attitudes, stereotyping and how they impact the lives of disabled people.
  • We then open up for a question and answer session with the students. This provides the students with an opportunity to get an insight into the reality of being a disabled person in modern Britain. 
  • We will use these sessions to dispel myths, change perceptions and promote confidence and positive attitudes.

Why should your school book a Scope Role Models workshop?

  • Our Scope Role Models workshops build a more open, welcoming learning environment, especially for disabled students and students with disabled friends or loved ones.

  • By facilitating open, honest discussion and challenging negative language and attitudes, we can help tackle bullying in schools.

I liked how any question was answered and any terminology could be used without offending anyone. We have an actual disabled person teaching us, not just anyone.
