• Functions of Volunteer Management (Tuesday 16 May, 11:00-11:30)

Delivered by Helen Dixon, Volunteer Manager, Intact Preston

• Parliamentary e-petitions (Wednesday 17 May, 12:30-13:00)

Delivered by Emma McIntosh, Petitions and Engagement Officer, House of Commons

What are e-petitions? What can they do? These are the building blocks of a short session with Emma that will help you explore how you and your learners can get more directly involved in politics, even after the votes have been cast this summer.

• Developing digital skills (Thursday 18 May, 10:30-11:00)

Delivered by Kevin Maye, Learning and Development Manager, Good Things Foundation

Can you remember what it was like not to know how to do something you now take for granted? Kevin shares some of his experience in creating learning content by helping us get back to basics, think about learning digital skills from a different perspective and supporting others on their learning journey.

• Diversify your income (Friday 19 May, 11:00 ­-11:30)

Delivered by Paul Worswick, Founder and Director, Joining Communities Limited
