The pilot project for Cities of Learning in Plymouth has almost completed and we are now preparing to launch a wider opportunity and open up for involvement across the South West and beyond.

During this online event, we’ll hear from Ed Hart, Programme Lead at Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) about the overall project and how you can champion the use of the Cities of Learning digital badges in your community. They’ll also be a chance to ask Ed questions about Cities of Learning and how to get involved.

As we move into a further period of uncertainty, we will see how Cities of Learning has the potential to support people to develop and showcase their skills. At a time when unemployment risks being at its highest ever levels, we will see how this work has the potential to help.

The Plymouth and Brighton pilots have so far focussed on the 14-25 age group. However, as we move forwards and begin to scale this work regionally and beyond, this will be expanded.

We will be able to look at how a broad range of sectors, as well as community and cultural organisations and informal learning providers can use the Cities of Learning model to support recovery - especially for those most affected by this pandemic.

Everyone is welcome, Fellows and non-Fellows.
