Description

Alzheimer Scotland’s Confident Conversations about Technology – ½ day Workshop Sessions

Alzheimer Scotland, in collaboration with the HCS Learning and Development Team at Perth & Kinross Council, is offering free ½ day interactive workshop sessions for P&KC staff throughout March 2018.

Confident Conversations about Technology is a national and local learning programme designed by Alzheimer Scotland and the learning is evidenced through the SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council) Open Badges system. Click here to learn more about open badges - https://www.badges.sssc.uk.com/

The learning is intended to raise awareness of developments in technology and to support the acquiring of new skills and knowledge, enabling you to confidently embed conversations about technology into your portfolio of support. You will leave with the digital tools and access to online resources necessary to make a successful, realistic change where you are.
