Hello <<First Name>>

It was great to see so many of you at our Digital Evolution conference a couple of weeks ago. We had some fantastic speakers, and videos of all their presentations and a great round-up of the day are now available online for you to watch.

If you missed out on the conference and are keen to engage with other Online Centres, our Share and Learn event is taking place on Tuesday 28 January at the NCVO in London. 

As well as meeting many other Online Centres, we have a range of speakers: 

  • Hafsha Shaikh from Smartlyte - sharing the many benefits of implementing a family learning approach into your delivery model
  • Aurelie Ramgoolam from Crofton Park Library - talking about how they support the learner journey and employability training 
  • Stephanie Linkogle, a tutor at Mind in the City - sharing her knowledge about mental health in ESOL and IT in adult education
  • Yvette Evans from Emmaus Lambeth and Surrey - sharing her thoughts on the impact of digital learning
We’ve also got bid writing and social media workshops, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet members of the network team. Don’t miss out, book your place today!

Best wishes
