This is the page where you will find many ideas to keep learning during these times -  a mixture of suggestions from members and quizzes, challenges and projects from our subject advisers, members and other Trust Volunteers. Some are one-off events and others ongoing over a period a time. All of which are supported by members like yourself. Get involved!

Don't forget to look at our accompanying Online Events for an exciting range of workshops, webinars and interactive sessions delivered by members for members, which are free to join.
