CLD Team ......Professional Development Opportunities & Events Jan- March 2017
Hi folks
A Happy New Year from Karen and Sallie!
Below are details of our upcoming training and events for Jan-Mar 17.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
On 14, 15 & 16 February there will be a roving Learners’ Consultation Roadshow
Karen and Sallie will be on the road visiting groups of learners.  We want to find out what’s good to celebrate about community learning and how learners would like to get involved in future city-wide opportunities.  We’d like to involve staff to discuss support for learners’ involvement. 

We would like to visit around eight projects  to engage with learners around the city. Please let Karen know by 1 February if you would like to join in our roadshow.   We can provide refreshments and promise not to be too disruptive, ideally meeting learners at the beginning/end of their regular classes!

  • Dyslexia Friendly Practice 1 Feb 2017 (10.00-13.00)
A popular follow-on from the Introduction to Dyslexia, this session covers good practice in a learning environment but is equally relevant for support workers that need to support service users with organisational skills, writing, everyday skills etc. Additionally, we demonstrate the use of technology to overcome barriers associated with dyslexia and cover some useful apps and free software.  Book here
  • Teasing Out Service User Impact 7 February 2017(10.00-13.00)
Service users often tell us what they think we want to hear taking a long time to tease out meaningful impacts. Built to increase participation and awareness of service users' learning journeys, this session is aimed at building those first steps towards a learner’s forum or for learners’ involvement in the planning and delivery of provision.  Book here
