Do you offer activities for young people?
ContinYou would like to invite social enterprises offering extra – curricular activities to join the VCS Hub for free, to raise their profile with schools and to access support to increase the quality of their provision.
Registering on the VCS Hub would offer several benefits:
- Free online marketing opportunities: social enterprises can use their online profiles, as well as the blogging facilities and forums on the Learning Exchange to market their extra-curricular offers to schools.
- Free training opportunities: We are commissioned to offer free training and peer-to-peer support seminars across the country to Social Enterprises and schools. The next round of training is taking place in October, which staff from your organisation may be interested in attending - no catches, just relevant and free.
- Extra promotion opportunities: the Learning Exchange can promote the activities of social enterprises in its weekly e-newsletters to members, and through its Twitter feed and Facebook page.
- Quality assurance: if they wish to do so, VCS Hub members can take up a free offer of support to undertake the self-assessment process required to acquire the Canterbury Christ Church University Quality in Study Support (QiSS) First Steps quality mark.
Please visit www.learning-exchange.org.uk/freetraining to register.
