London, UKLearning NewsCharity Learning Consortium

The Charity Learning Consortium is delighted to announce its first Charity Learning Conference & Awards, to be held on 15 September, London. The Conference is intended to be a showcase of excellence in learning and development in the charity and not-for-profit sector, with input from corporate organisations to inspire Consortium members. The Awards will be celebrating the stepping stones to success that member charities are taking on their eLearning journeys. More details of this exciting new event and its high level contributors will be revealed over the coming weeks and months.

The first Charity Learning Conference & Awards on 15 September, London, is set to be an inspiring event, celebrating the great work that is being done in learning and development in the Third Sector.

The Conference is exclusively for the more than 90 charities which are members of The Charity Learning Consortium.

Martin Baker, founder and MD of the CLC, said that holding the event this year was a dream come true: “I have wanted to hold a Conference and Awards like this for several years now, and as we approach 100 members of the Consortium, it seemed like the perfect time to make that dream a reality. I’m passionate about the Consortium and the great work that is being done by our members, and can’t wait to welcome them on 15 September.”

There are three awards that members can enter for: the best audience engagement; getting started, or restarted on their eLearning journey; and the best overall eLearning programme. Three further awards will also be conferred by the Consortium.

The Charity Learning Conference & Awards is the latest in a wealth of benefits of membership. Charities invariably join the Consortium to save money – with more than 90 members, it’s the largest group of charities in the UK collaborating to share the cost of eLearning. Once they have joined, they benefit from networking with others, both at our events and online. They may also attend regular workshops, or web conferences designed to hone their skills. Members also value hearing from invited speakers who are leaders in their field, like Learning Styles ‘guru’ Peter Honey and learning technologies experts Donald Taylor and Clive Shepherd.

Collaboration is at the heart of the Consortium’s ethos, members are keen to share stories of both challenges and successes and increasingly work together towards common goals. Members also drive the development of eLearning courseware - the Consortium really is ‘by the members; for the members’ and is keen to respond to requests.

More details of the exciting line-up for the Charity Learning Conference & Awards on 15 September, London will be released over the coming weeks and months.
