MSP Welcomes Free Online Learning Programme for Glaswegians

Glasgow Labour MSP Anne McTaggart has tabled a motion at the Scottish Parliament welcoming the launch of Altogether Glasgow, a free online education programme which aims to inform Glaswegians and tourists about the cultural assets of the city.

The resource was created by Glasgow Life as part of the Host City Glasgow Project for the Commonwealth Games which are taking place later this summer. The online programme is designed to encourage local people to appreciate the heritage and cultural and sporting assets of the city, and will be accessible via the free Wi-Fi at the city’s 33 libraries. This service will enable residents of Glasgow to search for jobs and check emails at their local libraries.

Ms McTaggart said “This new programme and the availability of internet access will encourage more people to make use of their local library and will engage communities in the delivery and legacy of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. I would encourage as many Glaswegians as possible to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and sign up to the site. This will help all of us to learn more about our city, as well as play an active part in welcoming visitors to Glasgow.”
