About The Promise Design School
Developed in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Designer at Scottish Government, The Promise Design School works to embed design thinking across the sector. It equips and empowers those tasked with redesigning care services to co-design with authenticity and genuine power sharing.
The Design School doesn’t look to provide formal training in service design, or to commission service designers to specific service challenges.
Rather, it wants to enable learning for those already leading services and strategy to do so differently, with full belief they don’t need to become service designers to harness the foundations of a co-design approach: ‘confident cooks not professional chefs’.
The Design School delivers on this ambition through training, coaching and resource development.
