Summer Refresher Training Sessions for Schools Volunteers

Owing to the Corona-virus pandemic, we have moved our termly training sessions online for the Summer term. We are keeping the same dates but you are free to attend whichever you like, you do not need to stick to the date originally set for your area. Each day will follow the same format and you can choose to do different parts of it on different days. 

11am - 1pm - a core session for all volunteers covering various topics of current interest and looking ahead. We also hope to include one new resource for you to hear about. 

1pm - 2pm - a optional lunch together online. A chance to just to chat with other volunteers and David.

The afternoon session will be broken up into 30 minute sections looking at older resources which you may not have been trained in or for which you would welcome a recap. You can do them over several days if you wish as we know being online for an extended period of time can be difficult. 

2-2.30pm Life Without Taps

2.30pm- 3pm On the Move

3pm -3.30pm Laudato Si'

3.30pm - 4pm Children's Rights/Augmented Reality
