The areas of challenge that the Partnership are collectively addressing are: Learning in Education, Learning for Work and Learning in Communities.

Learning in Communities*

Encouraging a culture in communities where learning is valued by everyone.

Current priorities:

  • Increase knowledge and understanding about access and participation in learning
  • Raise aspirations and awareness for all to engage in learning
  • Provide support for learners to raise achievement.

*In November 2016,  the Partnership Board approved a Strategic Ambition which sets out the Partnerships collective priorities for action during 2016 – 2018. To reflect the new ambition, two of the original Challenge Groups (Learning for Everyone and Learning for Life) have been replaced by a new Challenge Group called Learning in Communities.
