Scottish Learning Group

Scottish Learning Group is for learning enthusiasts! We are the ones on the ground doing learning and engagement in Scotland. Some of us do this as our jobs (including the 24/7 job that is parenting), some of us are volunteers, students, just dipping our toes in the water or simply interested. All are welcome! Through learning, we strive to:

  • encourage participation, empower and inspire learners
  • build relationships and strengthen our communities while continuing to develop and contribute to the sectors we work in

We come a bunch of different settings: science, museums, heritage, nature, creativity, parenting, teaching, health and well-being, careers…and everything in between. Every other month we come together at informal meet ups. Here we support each other, and share ideas and knowledge while developing relationships and partnerships.

Interested? You can join in the chat in a couple of different ways, it’s all free! All you need to have is an interest in learning and engagement – you don’t need to be an expert.

  • Come along to our next meet up (here is a list of dates and themes). We host both evening meet ups Edinburgh and Glasgow (so far) and 1/2 day ‘mini learning journeys’.
  • But you don’t need to go anywhere, either. Join our email list to get the interesting info from the last meet up and details on the next one, regardless if you’ve been able to attend. We realise that not everyone can make it to the central belt or maybe you can’t attend and just want to read the notes – it’s all good! We make notes widely available because want to make Scottish Learning Group as accessible as possible.
  • follow us via Twitter and our Facebook Page!

Any questions? Comments? We’d love to hear from you! Just drop a line to  Rebecca Boyde, Scottish Learning Group Wayfinder.
