North Alliance - Celebrating Covid Learning in the North 2020

The North Alliance is a partnership of Community Learning and Development practitioners from the north of Scotland: Shetland, Orkney, Western Isles, Highland, Moray, Argyll and Bute, Aberdeen, and Aberdeenshire.  We meet throughout the year with a key aim of furthering professional learning and practice in CLD.

2020 has seen an awe-inspiring list of initiatives developed in response to the Covid 19 virus.  Vulnerable people of all ages have been supported with their personal needs. Staff and volunteers have developed skills to deliver digital on-line learning and a range of creative solutions has been found to meet the needs in our communities. New partnerships have been created and new ways of doing things have emerged with a focus on helping those most in need.

North Alliance want to celebrate all this, learn from it, acknowledge the difference it has made in our communities, and share it across the north to help demonstrate and inform the key role CLD has to play in Scotland’s recovery from COVID.  Any information shared will also be really useful to help inform the development of the next Shetland Community Learning and Development Plan which is due in September. 

If you have a good story to tell, we would love to hear it, and feel free to share this with others in your community.  Just click on the link to the Word document below, complete and return to June.porter@shetland.gov.uk by 25th February.
