Community Learning and Education Links

We held our first of three seminars today to explore links between Community Learning and Education.  What was striking was that there are so many existing links between community education – in all its forms and our schools.

  1. Don, the first of your three seminars sounds really interesting and I look forward to finding out more about it. Is there any way I could participate in future seminars? One of our aims for this year as a school is to become more involved in the community and community learning would be a key part of this. Ollie

  2. I thought Thursday’s “seminar” was terrific, and a very valuable opportunity to meet others with a similar agenda. It’s striking how appropriate the various departments that met (sports, ranger service, museums, community learning) are for fostering the sort of cross-curricular learning that the Curriculum For Excellence expects. I look forward to meeting with schools to explore opportunities for collaboration!
