The employability workshop looked at employer engagement strategies including practical hints and tips. Our widening Participation workshop covered preventing youth extremism and our measuring impact session looked at putting theory into practice using the Impact+ Exercise. The joint session allowed delegates from each workshop to share what they would take away from the event.

Watch our highlights film with projects from across our three themes share their experiences of taking part in Learning Networks.
The Employability workshop looked at how to quantify soft skills and discussed what employability means across the UK. Our Widening Participation workshop covered different approaches to partnership working: building trust and bridging cultures. And finally the Measuring Impact workshop looked at what data is needed in order to successfully measure impact and discussed how we can measure personal impact. In parallel, an ‘Impact Exercise’ involved TCA delegates from nine countries across Europe, who trialled a tool which looks at the impact of their projects. The joint round-up session highlighted key learnings from the three workshops which will inform future events. You can download the delegate guide (447 KB) for more information about our speakers and to see the delegate list from the event. You can also view photos from the event on our Facebook page.
