At Society1, we run regular internal, bite-sized learning sessions for members, called Skills Scrums.

These are hosted by Society1 members or associates, who lead a Skills Scrum in their area of specialism. The sessions are short and focused on a single topic area. The groups are small, to offer targeted learning which supports attendees’ individuals need.

The Society1 Skills Scrum sessions are regular events at Society1, each with a different topic.
