City of Bristol Courses & Open Day

Open Day

The City of Bristol College has an Open Day this week and you can sign up here.

A couple of things we spotted that may be of interest is that they are also involved in both online and live and some that are free or affordable training for adults.

Over 50 short, online college courses are available for you to join today for free, giving you the skills you need for a career change or to get employment ready. This wide range of courses is brought to you by Partners in Bristol (PiB), part of City of Bristol College, in collaboration with SkillsNet. Some that piqued our interest:

We will be exploring the changes in legislation, operating methods and culture and how all these things are driving a fundamental shift in our healthcare system for good.

UKSPA Member Conference 2-3 December 2021

Innovation Birmingham Campus. Hopefully, the next two days will provide an opportunity to reflect on the last twenty months but also to look forward and reconnect and re-engage with friends and colleagues. This will be a slightly different event to those we have run in the past. There are more plenary contribu-tions than we would usually have with all of the main sessions taking place in the Atrium of the Innovation campus with a reduced capacity but in a larger space.

As a suggestion from one of our lovely members (Thanks Gabs #1!), we have also set up a “buymeacoffee” page for those wanting to give us a small thank-you. Check it out here.
