Digital CLD: sources of ongoing support

Digitally Agile Community Learning and Development: YouthLink Scotland, Learning Link Scotland and the Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) are working in partnership to deliver the Digitally Agile Community Learning and Development (DACLD), project, which emerged from strategic discussions at the CLD National Workforce Development Group. The project initiation came from the three partners with support offered by Education Scotland as part of Community Learning and Development (CLD) Up-skilling Programme, managed by Education Scotland and funded by the Scottish Government.  They are creating a comprehensive picture of ‘new technologies’ and ‘Social Media’ used in current practice, skills in the sector and barriers faced by managers, workers, volunteers and organisations in making the most of this developing media.  They have formed a Digital Futures group of wider partner organisations (including Lead) to co-create standards/principles for CLD.
Connect:Communities of Practice is a national network for CLD practice in Scotland, run by Education Scotland which encourages sharing of good practice and has thematic groups such as financial literacy, community capacity building, additional support needs, and so on. You can create a personal profile and connect with individual practitioners as well as make contributions to thematic groups.
idevelop is hosted by the CLD Standards Council as part of Scotland’s CPD Strategy, A Learning Culture for the Community Learning and Development Sector in Scotland. They encourage practitioner led forums and peer sharing and have created a profiling tool where practitioners can record their CPD and "reflection-in-action", benchmarked against the values, principles, skills and competences relevant for CLD practitioners.
