Working with Scotland’s communities is a national study to find out more about the diverse range of paid workers and volunteers that provide community learning and development across Scotland. The online survey aimed at the organisations that employ these workers and volunteers is now open until Friday 10 April.
We know that community learning and development approaches are used by workers and volunteers with a variety of job titles in a range of different organisations in the community, voluntary and public sectors.
We want to hear from as many of these organisations as possible to build a current national picture of how many workers and volunteers there are, what they do, and what their training and development issues are. Please be aware that we’re only looking for one response on behalf of each organisation or service.
The findings from the survey will be used to inform national community learning and development policy and planning.
Working with Scotland’s communities is being carried out by Education Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government, with help and support from the following national partners – Youthlink Scotland; The Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC); The Workers Educational Association (WEA); The CLD Standards Council for Scotland; and CLD Managers Scotland.
Take the online survey.
Each year we run a survey to track what eLearning tools and topics are of importance to the members of the eLearning Alliance Project.
By completing the survey, you help to provide guidance on the areas which are of relevance to the eLearning community. In turn, this will help the Project to run events which are of greatest value to the community.
We'd be grateful if you could spend a couple of minutes filling in the form.
We will publish updates on the barometer in our newsletter and on our website.

How do you make it possible for different parts of an organisation to access some, but not all, of a Learning Management System (LMS)? The answer: a multi-tenancy LMS.
But everyone has different needs for sharing, and different parts of a system and content that need to be kept separated.
In this free webinar from Synergy Learning on 26th March at 12pm -1pm, we draw on real life examples using Totara LMS to achieve multi-tenancy, exploring how to allow different organisations and departments within a large enterprise to have their own identity in the LMS.
Through the webinar, we’ll explore;
- different interpretations of multi-tenancy
- common issues around user management, branding, reporting, and ongoing maintenance
- multi-tenancy with themes for the user and organisations for the administration
- sustaining future upgrades
- typical solutions Synergy Learning have developed to meet multi-tenancy requirements
