North West Learning Partnership including CLD Plan Workshop 29 Jan 09.30am – 12.00 Noon The Albany
A quarterly meeting for adult learning practitioners in the North West of Glasgow. Keep up to date with local NW initiatives and meet new partners. New members always welcome. This time will also provide practitioners with the opportunity to consider what the Glasgow Community Learning & Development Plan means for their work and how they can contribute.
CLD Principles 1 Feb 10.00am – 12 noon The Albany
By popular demand, we are running this session again. Useful for staff who do not have a community education / community learning and development background or those who would like a refresh, we will look at some of the core principles that are behind CLD work and the regulations and guidance provided nationally. Bringing a local context, we will look at the Glasgow CLD Plan.
What have we been up to?
Support to Third Sector Organisations for Self- Evaluation (HGIOTSO)
In conjunction with Education Scotland, we held the first of three pilot training sessions to support staff in third sector organisations to develop their skills in self-evaluation, particularly using How Good is Our Third Sector Organisation (HGIOTSO), a tool specifically developed for and with the third sector. Being the first time that this is delivered nationally, means that staff will not only benefit from the expertise of Education Scotland but will have the opportunity to share their experience and contribute to the development of tools to support HGIOTSO nationally. We currently have eight organisations involved but will look to share the tools more widely, so do get in touch if your organisation would like to know more.
The Impact of Trauma within the Learning Environment
Prior to the holidays, Anne McKechnie, consultant forensic clinical psychologist gave a fascinating input to our Swap Shop explaining to tutors and development workers how trauma can impact the development of the brain and how this can continue to affect adults in their everyday lives, for example in the work or learning environment. This proved to be so relevant for many of the learners/ users of our services that staff are working with that we are planning future sessions with Anne. Contact Karen if you would like to know more.
