Community Learning Partnerships Work in Birmingham – case study by the Birmingham Community Learning Trust (CLT)

The case study describes a collaborative approach between the Birmingham Adult Education Service, Further Education colleges and voluntary sector partners to planning community learning in Birmingham. It sets out the processes used and describes the achievements and considerable benefits this approach brings to learners and providers.

The example of data sharing sets show patterns of participation in Community Learning by ward across the city. The partners used them to identify current participation across wards and to start planning for more activity in deprived wards where participation is lower.
