The Men’s Shed is located in the East End of Glasgow the largest city in Scotland. The membership has grown from the original 6 members in 2014 to 75 members in 2019.
These men come from all walks of life and represent an exceptionally wide range of life skills and professional abilities.
The Men’s Shed has a small learning centre open only to registered members and is part of the John Wheatley Learning Network. They are supported by Glasgow Kelvin College. Currently this facility is supervised by a member who has a Certificate in Digital Inclusion in addition to other Community Achievement Awards.
Courses have begun to support computer novices to take their first steps into the digital world: ECDL courses and beyond are available at the Glasgow Kelvin College John Wheatley East-End Campus a short distance from the Men’s Shed.
The men simply register and this entitles them, as students, to access all the college
“Newbie” computer learners can find an awful lot of useful learning material from the links in the “Click and Connect, Log in and Learn” opening page (the John Wheatley Learning Network Learning Portal).
