Good point, Dimitris. As someone who teaches but also studies the public 
sector I agree wholeheartedly. If there was sufficient interest, perhaps 
we could have a series of these, e.g.:

OS Geo technologies for high-school teachers
- sub topics here
OS Geo technologies for local governments
- sub topics here

At the same time, seminars on various technologies could, potentially, 
be somewhat generic.

I've had two responses so far from people possibly interested in 
participating in this. If there are others who might be interested in 
presenting a topic, let me know.
If I get a few more I'll start a wiki page to try and start organizing 
topics and potential presenters. This may lead then to a conference call 
for further discussion.
