Event description


This workshop will cover the key platforms and themes of social media. This will include Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. We can look at them from both a personal and business angle and how each platform can work best for you and/or your organisation.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will have the opportunity to explore any social media of their choice
  • Participants will discover the pros and cons of each platform
  • Participants will learn how best to use each platform and how to use privacy settings
  • Participants can be walked through each step of setting up a social media account and can leave the workshop with a new account should they wish to do so.

The workshop will be moulded to suit individual needs on the day.

Other possible aspects which may be looked at are blogging, Vlogging, Online dating apps and fitness apps and how to make the most of them.

This workshop will be led by Irene Mackintosh of Mhor Collective, a community interest group which aims to encourage digital inclusion and support wider digital participation in communities and for individuals.

This workshop is interactive and Irene will answer any questions you have on the day.


Who we are

The Worker’s Educational Association has been providing

high-quality educational opportunities to communities since

1903. Our vision is for a better world: equal, democratic and

just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires

individuals, communities and society.

The WEA Women@Work project aims to dismantle the barriers

women face caused by:

  • rural isolation
  • poverty
  • inequality

And to give women a voice:

  • in the home
  • at work
  • and in the community, both locally and nationally.

We have seven W@W network areas across the Highlands, each

with a local coordinator who organises events in their area.

The seven network areas are:

  • Caithness
  • Sutherland
  • Ross-shire
  • Skye & Lochalsh
  • Lochaber
  • Inverness
  • Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey

Our workshops and events are free to attend.

The Women@Work project is funded by the Scottish Government Promoting Equality and Cohesion Fund.

The Workers' Educational Association is a charity registered in England and Wales (number 1112775) and in Scotland (number SC039239) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (number 2806910). Registered address is WEA, 4 Luke Street, London, EC2A 4XW.
