Digital Champion Training
Connecting Scotland training is provided by the Mhor Collective, our training delivery partners. We have two different training sessions. If you’re new to Connecting Scotland you should join the Core Digital Champion Training. This is an introduction to Connecting Scotland and your role as a Digital Champion. If you’ve already been on this training we invite you to join our Families, Children and Young People Training session. This builds on what we cover in the Core Digital Champion session. Both training sessions are available on different dates on both Zoom and Teams. The sessions will be highlighted as either a Zoom or Teams session, so pick the platform that works best for you.
Please note, we update training dates and availability every couple of weeks. We currently have plans to run these training sessions throughout 2021. We usually add dates 3 weeks in advance to help us manage and monitor the demand for each session.
