This first workshop, on 17th June 2006, will be on professional networking skills, which will be of use to participants in the remaining parts of the programme. The workshop will be delivered by Helen Gallick, from Networking for Success Ltd.

There will be monthly generic skills and briefing workshops until December, followed by sector-specific updating seminars and labs to bring you up to date in the SET areas for which there is work in the central belt of Scotland. All workshops are free and there will be a free onsite crèche, which must be pre-booked.
