Motion text

That this House congratulates the graduates of the New Scots Leadership Programme; notes that during the 12-day programme, organised by the Social Enterprise Academy and the Scottish Refugee Council, participants acquired an ILM-accredited Certificate in Leadership, which also offers the opportunity to progress directly to a BA in Business and Enterprise at third year level at Edinburgh Napier University; welcomes the support of the Glasgow Communities Fund and the Scottish Government for the programme; recognises the importance of projects such as the Leadership Programme in fostering the growth and development of refugee communities, especially in the context of continued attacks on the right to asylum; and thanks the organisers and participants and wishes them both the best in all future endeavours.
