social-media-surgery-80031d016e0ffb51b6eb2f0181640c93A programme of free social media training and advice is being made available to council and local services staff and volunteers from community organisations that live and work within the Northfield and Weoley wards.

The sessions, organised by Birmingham City Council’s Community Safety Team, aim to help community partners build a better connection with the communities they serve.

The first session will be Social Media Awareness Training delivered by community social media masters Podnosh – an informal session, for anyone interested in using social media or already using it. It is suitable for all levels of expertise. Talk about what social media is (Facebook, Twitter, blogging etc), how it is being used and how it could be used effectively in Northfield and Weoley wards.

Following this, there will be three Social Media Surgeries where groups and individuals can get one to one advice from volunteers on getting set up and established on social media or developing existing use.
