Make it Happen are taking part in this exciting upcoming conference.
‘See IT in Action 2012 is a market place event designed to showcase the latest innovations in ICT. It will demonstrate how local government is working to improve the delivery of public services and meet the government’s pledge to make all services ‘digital by default’. See IT in Action 2012 will focus on how local authorities can utilise technology to empower citizens, improve frontline services and transform the lives of the most vulnerable citizens in society and the ‘digitally excluded’.’
Make it Happen are sharing a stall in the market place with TPAS (Tenant Participation Advisory Service). We’ll be showcasing the exciting e-learning courses, activities, resources and e-learning games that we have designed for TPAS over the past two years.
Why not come along and visit us? We are at stall number 20.
On the 2nd Sept 2011, Andrea Wren from the Guardian newspaper began to learn how to blog over a 6 month period and will complete in Feb 2012. Her fortnightly articles have built into a detailed case study that prospective bloggers might find useful.
We are now in the final stages of developing a new e-learning course for the Tenants Participation Advisory Service (TPAS) called ‘Involving Everyone’. The course launches on 14th Feb 2011. Part of the course involves looking at the new Equality Act and how this effects Voluntary and Community Sector organisations. Check out the links below for information about the Act and the video from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
There’s a wide range of information on the Equality and Human Rights Commission website including videos. pdf downloads and an Equality Act Starter Kit. You can download the starter kit in sections and use it to see what your organisation might need to consider for the future in relation to the Act. There are also some excellent publications produced by the Government Equalities Office that you can download for free. Click on the ones under the heading ‘Voluntary and Community Organisations’. ACAS also have some excellent publications and information.
This Summer, as part of our three-year e-learning project for TPAS (the national Tenant Participation Advisory Service) Make It Happen trained online a number of TPAS E-learning Ambassadors – @mbassadors for short. Their role, amongst other things, is to advocate for the TPAS e-learning programme and to provide peer advice and guidance for other e-learners.
It’s great to see Leeds Federated HA, who take pride in being a ‘people’ organisation, highlighting the important role that e-learning @mbassadors can play:
Leeds Federated is proud to announce that Sue Howlett an involved tenant has taken on the role of E-Learning Ambassador for TPAS to promote Easy-Learning online.
Sue is part of a team of trained E-Learning Ambassadors who will continue to work with TPAS to explore new technologies and develop innovative new courses, content and ideas for the E-Learning programme.
Congratulations to Sue, her hard work and commitment has led her to take on opportunities at the cutting edge of tenant involvement.
