Partnership working continues to be an important aspect of our work and the element which enhances our reach and impact. Whatever programme area you look at, whether it is learning at work, community learning, our open programmes, the work is contributing to wider developments in communities and is supporting major aspirations for equality and fairness, health improvements, social and economic inclusion and more opportunities for young people.
Through positive engagement with partners, and by playing our part in local and national planning for our field of service, we maximise our reach both in terms of geography and engaging new adult learners. Pooling resources, sharing our expertise with community, voluntary and statutory services, both local and national, is the key to making a real difference through learning.
