“Informed Scotland provides a very valuable service with information on forthcoming Professional Learning events throughout Scotland. There are lots of useful events in their listings that I only found out about through their Calendar.”
– Allan Wilson, Information Officer, CALL Scotland, Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh

“Everyone involved in Scottish education should regularly check out the Events Calendar and follow @InformedScot on Twitter. Quite simply, it tells you about everything that’s going on!”
– David Noble, co-founder of Radio EDUtalk

“It’s great to see all that’s happening in learning and development in one place. Thanks to the Calendar I am always up to date with current events and never miss anything.”

Introduction to Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) @ SCQF, Glasgow
Jan 30 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The SCQF Partnership

A half day taster session aimed at anyone wishing to recognise the skills and experience that people pick up through formal or informal learning, life experiences and work.

The recognition process can be worked through with anyone of any age to build confidence or simply let them know where they are.

This workshop would be extremely useful for employers to enable them to recognise what skills their staff already have and identify any skills gap that they need to fill.

An ideal overview for those with no prior knowledge of RPL.
