Partnership Board

Bristol Learning City is governed by a Partnership Board of influential city leaders. Building on existing good practice, Learning City partners are committed to creating and promoting learning opportunities for everyone, of all ages and from all communities, in all parts of the city – encouraging everyone to be proud to learn throughout their lives.

The main aims of the partnership are to:

  • champion learning as a way to transform lives, communities, organisations and the city: we want everyone to be proud to learn throughout their lives
  • take responsibility for learning across the city, to tackle the systematic challenges that lead to inequality, by sharing our expertise, targeting our resources and taking collective action to add value to the work we do individually
  • realise our shared vision, deliver change and make a greater impact.

A number of Learning City partnership priorities have recently been agreed for Bristol by the Partnership Board. Education partners will work together to improve children’s literacy, school attendance, the recruitment and retention of teachers, pathways for young people into further and higher education and employment, outcomes for children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and outcomes for minority ethnic children and young people in Bristol.

Partnership Board Members

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and the creation of the One City Children and Young People Board, the Learning City board has been placed on hold pending a review of membership and the scope of the board. Further details will follow regarding the future of the partnership board.
