2021 Programme

Motivate, Learn, Lead – has moved online

We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Motivate programme has moved online with two cohorts who will undertake the course over the next three months.  Congratulations to all those who were selected and we look forward to hearing how they are benefitting from the programme in due course.

Thanks to Covid…

Out of the challenges of the Covid19 lockdowns we are aware there have been amazing developments as library staff, in all sectors, have delivered services in new ways. We are seeking examples to share in a free exchange of experience event to be held online in March.

If your team have good examples to share please email Carol on

Planning the year ahead…

Work is starting on the new 2021 programme – the vast majority of which we expect to be online. Whilst some of us miss the face to face interraction, we have had very positive feedback on our online courses. If you have any particular subjects you would like to see us run, please do email Carol on and we will do our best to source an event to suit. We are endeavouring to keep prices at a low and competitive level and to include a number of free ‘exchange of experience’ events as well so that we can all learn from each other.


Teaching Skills for Library Staff  – Deferred to at least November 2021
