The Technology team is developing a lifelong learning program based on the Scottish Social Services Council Open Badges system. Open Badges are digital records of achievements and skills that are tied to assessment and evidence. Have a look at this video to learn more.

A national Technology Enabled Care funded learning programme - Confident Conversations about Technology.

This is a new learning programme for all practitioners, delivery partners and front line staff who support people living with dementia and their families and carers.

Confident Conversations about Technology has been developed by Alzheimer Scotland and the learning is evidenced through SSSC Open Badges (Scottish Social Services Council).  Places are free but a commitment to 1 full day of learning and further online participation is required to receive the accreditations.  It is funded through the Scottish Government’s Technology Enabled Care Fund. 

The learning is intended to raise awareness of developments in technology and to support the acquiring of new skills and knowledge, enabling you to confidently embed conversations about technology into your portfolio of support.  You will leave with the tools and access to resources to make a successful, realistic change where you are. 

Please note Confident Conversation workshops are now ended. The last three events are detailed below. Please click on each event for more information.

We are working on a Roadshow program of events, which will tour Scotland in 2018. More information will be available soon.
