Survey of Training Needs
Once per year, we like to ascertain the interests of the staff and projects we support in order to tailor the service we offer most effectively. We launched our survey last month but are still hoping for more replies, so if there are projects who you think would benefit from training in community learning & development, please ask them to complete our 9 question Survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QYYXPGF.
What have we been up to?
North West Learning Partnership Launch
33 staff came together from a variety of organisations in the NW of Glasgow to launch this partnership. We networked and shared contacts as well as agreeing to work more closely in the future. Next meeting in Sept. We are chairing this partnership.
Our contribution was added to the overall city CLD Plan which went before the CPP Exec Committee in June. It is now making its way through GCC procedures to be published in September. (A Powerpoint presentation is available – ask Sallie for this). We are working with Glasgow Life colleagues to revise the Adult Learning Action Plan that will sit under the CLD Plan.
We are working hard to facilitate communications to and from our wider CLD network and have been in touch with Glasgow NE Learning Forum, WCA Voluntary Sector Network and Education Scotland Key Contacts.
The session has been postponed until Friday 18 September 2-4pm at the Albany where Dr Nadia Northway (Programme leader /Lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University) will discuss the topic of Visual Stress and the relevance of this to adult learners. This may also be relevant to support workers in many settings where an understanding of service users’ needs would be helpful. Time to sign up for this!
