Co-operative Education Past and Future
1st July @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
About Co-operative Education Past and Future
Co-operatives Fortnight takes place between 24 June and 7 July and this event is a celebration of what co-operative education has achieved.
The Co-operative College began in 1919 and is celebrating its centenary this year. It has supported members, employees of co-operatives to develop their knowledge and skills and also has worked to be inclusive in providing education to adult learners from diverse backgrounds.
This event will explore how we move forward and progress this unique way of learning. Each speaker will have 15 minutes to talk and then conclude with an open forum for general discussion.
We will also be launching our “Co-operative Poem” following on from the campaign to write a collective poem for Co-operatives Fortnight.
