Gillian Cooke from Commonwealth Games Scotland attended the YPSP meeting to deliver Media Training (requested by the ypsp). The training was very well received by all and covered many topics such as what is media, information on the various types of social media and how to best use it. Gillian also led the group through a practical session where the young people participated in individual live interviews with feedback and top tips on how to come across well in live interviews. Thank you to Gillian for giving up her time and coming along to deliver the training.
JL gave the YPSP information on the Saltire Awards. All panel members have been asked to sign up for this where they can log their volunteering hours. This will also be an item on the agenda at the next meeting
The panel members were reminded to submit their website articles when it is their month to do so (table below). Thank you to those who have already submitted articles, they are proving to be big hits on the SDS website and Facebook page
