Connecting with Change - What a success!!!

This week the Lynn and I, the Connecting Learners team, have been running a series of personal development days for health, local government and 3rd sector staff alongside the STEP (Health) and Making the Learning Connections (Local Government) WULF project teams in North Wales and Viv Newman from Newman Training Associates.

It was a wonderful week due to the 60 fantastic participants from all three sectors that came along to find out more about change, improving confidence and using and improving their employability skills and qualities.

For me, these days highlight the benefit of partnership working - both between the three projects and with the hosts; Glyndwr University, Bodelwyddan Castle and Alltwen Hospital. In particular, we would like to thank Trish Maybury, Unison's ULR at Glyndwr University, Laura at Bodelwyddan Castle and Sister Aspen at Alltwen Hospital without whom the days would not have run so smoothly.

We're currently in the process of putting together all of the photos, resources and presentations into a package to send out to the participants and publish online. We hope to have this finished very soon.

Hi everyone,

Here's the great poster designed by Sofie from Connecting Health Through Learning promoting the upcoming series of "Connecting with Change" personal development days, jointly organised and run by the 3 Unison WULF Projects here in North Wales.

The day is designed to give frontline health, local government and third sector workers the opportunity to discover:
  • more about the idea of change
  • how do get a confidence boost
  • their personal qualities and transferable skills
  • tips and techniques for presenting yourself
  • learning opportunities with WULF Projects and beyond
  • a personal plan of action
  • lots, lots more.
If you're interested in coming along or want to find out more, please don't hesitate to get in touch with any of the people shown on the poster.

It should be an amazing week of events.
