Trade School Glasgow is an alternative learning space in Glasgow that runs on barter
Established by social care charity, Social Care Ideas Factory, Trade School Glasgow will focus its classes on practical subjects on and around social care and community development. We hope the school will help build stronger, more involved communities within Glasgow and, with this in mind, you will find methods of learning at Trade School Glasgow that you won’t be able to take elsewhere. The most unique thing about Trade School Glasgow is that no money is involved - anyone will be able to pitch an idea for a class and equally, lessons will be free to attend by all. Instead of payment, the school will run on barter. Teachers will come up with a wish list of items and students who attend will bring along the items requested. For example, if you teach a class about making butter, you might ask students to bring heavy cream, jars, bread, music tips, clothes, vegetables, or help with something like finding a flat share. Everyone has something to teach and who doesn't like to learn something new?! We hope that both social care providers and individuals will be able to benefit from key knowledge, skills, ideas and partnerships which will develop from the classes.
