The Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) today announces a media partnership with learning-sector newswire, Learning News. The partnership will see the two organisations working together to promote awareness of news, challenges, solutions, developments and strategies for the global L&D community.

The partnership will provide Learning News with access to the LPI's international business networks with a view to building relationships and promoting joint activity with high-performing learning organisations and Heads of Learning.

Learning News will also offer editorial coverage of LPI events such as the LEARNING LIVE conference, the annual Learning Awards, and international business partner events, showcasing the very best examples of individual and organisational excellence.

In addition, Learning News will work closely with the LPI to raise awareness of its support of children's charity, Dreamflight.

Learning News Editor, Rob Clarke, welcomed the partnership: “The LPI is an important and essential hub around which learning practitioners debate, challenge, learn, lead, share and grow. Our new partnership ensures Learning News will be there to report what's happening and to share it with the wider industry,” he said.

LPI Global Partner Director, Kelly Davis, said that the LPI has already been closely aligned with Learning News for some years: “We are already reporting to a large degree on Learning News," she said. "This partner agreement seeks to build on that, expanding our relationship and strengthening our shared commitment to support international learning organisations in their quest to improve business performance."

Learning News will continue to carry regular LPI content on its web platform learningnews.com. LPI will likewise regularly carry content produced by the Learning News team on its websites, learningprofessionalnetwork.com and thelpi.org.
