Previous News: Workshop to explore generic skills for regeneration and sustainable communities
Local Livelihoods is arranging two one-day workshops to help develop a common and shared understanding of the meaning of "generic skills" for regeneration and sustainable communities
The Egan Review recommended that a set of "generic skills" for regeneration and sustainable communities be established. The workshop is about understanding and interpreting the way that works within your local situation. This is part of on-going research into the potential for and feasibility of Local Learning Centres. We are holding 2 one day events and invite both users and providers of local learning for regeneration to come and develop a common and shared understanding of the meaning of "generic skills".
The aim of the workshop is to:
- meet other organisations involved with local learning in the South West
- share experiences of both supplying learning and receiving learning
- exchange thoughts and critiques of the existing provision
- create a shared practical understanding of the Egan Review's "generic skills"
- develop pragmatic ideas of how these translate into learning and training sets
The two events will be the same so please choose the one nearest to you. The event is free and all information gathered will be available to all participants. If you wish to attend please fill in the attendance Booking Form, or to find out more, or make a comment if you cannot attend, please email us.
