The Partnership Board originally set up four Challenge Groups to look at and improve specific areas of learning in the city and to consider ways of including all ages and backgrounds in learning. The areas of challenge were: Learning for and in Work, Learning in Education, Learning for Everyone and Learning for Life.
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 To reflect the new ambition, two of the original Challenge Groups (Learning for Everyone and Learning for Life) have been replaced by a new Challenge Group called Learning in the Community.
The January – May 2016 reports provide a comprehensive overview of each of the original Challenge Groups activities. From November 2016, the refreshed Challenge Groups will report to the Partnership Board on their current priorities derived from the Strategic Ambition.
