We would like to invite you to our upcoming series of virtual community learning exchanges, funded by the Scottish Community Alliance. The sessions will focus on themes identified by Rural SEN members as important to their future plans, and will be hosted by social enterprises from Uist, Tiree, and Dumfries. See the links below to sign up via Eventbrite:
Involving Young People – We will hear from The Usual Place and Inspiralba, who will share their experiences supporting young people in marginalised and rural communities through employability and training, and access routes to further education.
This session will offer learning to enable you to develop opportunities involving young people in your own organisation.
Digital Engagement – Kirsty MacCormick, Manager of Cothrom in South Uist will share their experiences of building digital engagement across remote geographies, and the tools they have used. This session will build knowledge and understanding around digital engagement, inclusion, and adult learning.
E-Commerce – Over the last year, Rhoda Meek got a crash course in E-commerce by setting up the Isle20 marketplace. By day Rhoda is an IT Consultant, and by night she runs Isle Develop CIC – the home of isle20.com and a few other projects. This session will highlight how to get up and running with E-commerce and start thinking about growing online sales.
