Are You Involved in Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games?

Posted on

UWS has given its support to Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games through staff secondment, research activity and students/staff undertaking pre-games volunteer roles.

The University is keen to capture the full extent of individual involvement and celebrate the contribution of UWS staff and students to what is going to be a memorable event in Glasgow’s history. If you have been involved already or have been selected to play a part in Glasgow 2014 please complete this very short survey (six questions) created by the Careers & Employability Service to help us gather this information.

You can complete the survey anonymously if you do not wish to be identified.  The survey will close on 31st May

BBC Learning at the Quay-Digital Learning Zone Event – Volunteer Call Out

Posted on

Volunteers needed to help out during the Commonwealth Games at :

Digital Learning Zone Event 26-30 July 2014

BBC Learning will be rolling up at BBC Pacific Quay in Glasgow for five days from Saturday 26th July to Wednesday 30th July.

Over the five days learning will deliver inspirational content for young people and families, focused around one of Learning’s key priorities – digital creativity.  The activities will draw on content created earlier in the year for the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham.  There will also be additional material created in conjunction with BBC1’s Waterloo Road based around numeracy and health.

The idea is to offer interactive, fun taster sessions based on one of the Sherlock Holme’s games as well as partner introductory coding activities.

Looking for volunteers to help out on any of the above days.  You don’t need to be an expert in technology or online stuff as we will have people available to cover this, but are looking for people who are outgoing and confident talking to the public and families.

Volunteers need to be at least 18 years of age and if possible live within reasonable travelling distance from Glasgow. (reasonable travelling expenses will be reimbursed)

If you would like to volunteer please email Catherine Garvie – with your preferred day/s where you live and a contact telephone number.
