The Network will convene for its first meeting of 2021 towards the end of this month, with a meeting entitled ‘Supporting you as you support others: Encouraging and energising the Network’.
This online meeting will take place on the morning of Wednesday 27th January 2021 at 10.00-12.00am. Please book your place here. Joining instructions will be sent to registrants in advance of the event.
The aim of the meeting will be to explore ways of maintaining your own wellbeing as you work to support others. Feedback from the last network showed wellbeing was a key issue members wanted to talk about, and that more time spent in discussion in small groups would be preferable to a more presentation-based meeting.
There will be the usual opportunities to hear from the Co-chairs of the Network and from Learning Directorate colleagues at Scottish Government, who will focus on workforce support and wellbeing in the current climate.
