by National Institute of Adult Continuing Education.

Publisher: Leicester, U.K. National Institute of Adult Continuing Education 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011Summary: The report will be of special interest to anyone working to improve places and services and to strengthen communities. It will also help those considering setting up or funding Community Learning Champion schemes. Based as the scheme is on the work of volunteers, training and supporting Community Learning Champions effectively is fundamental to their impact, and this requires funds. Community Learning Champions should be viewed as complementary to the work of professionals, not substitutes for them. They have a valuable role to play in engaging people who have proved hard to reach for traditional providers, signposting them and supporting them through learning but also helping to develop new learning opportunities for them. This report outlines the key elements of the programme, local and national, assesses the difference the Community Learning Champions have made and identifies the resources produced. It should be read alongside those resources, especially the toolkits, the training programme and a series of films illustrating various aspects of the work of Community Learning Champions.Availability: (1)
