Inspiring Practitioners

We are always looking for opportunities to inspire our community with a passion for Science. “Science for Community Learning and Development workers” was created with Funding from Education Scotland, with the aim to increase practitioners’ confidence in STEM.

We are proud to be part of a team, that together with Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Council CLD teams, made this work possible. This course is now available for all community leaders with a curiosity and desire to learn more about Science. If you would like to take part, click here.
