Third Sector Learning and Skills – The Way Forward, 24 June 2014

10th June 2014

The Third Sector Implementation Board (TSIB) was set up to provide strategic oversight and guidance to enhance the future development of the sector’s contribution to learning and skills. The Board was facilitated by NIACE and comprised of sector representatives including TS learning providers (national and local) and government department representatives. The Board also developed a range of quality enhancement tools and best practice resources available to the sector. Building on the work of the TSIB we are holding a seminar  Third Sector Learning and Skills –The Way Forward on Tuesday 24 June 2014 at the Tomlinson Centre, Queensbridge Road, London, E8 3ND. This is a free seminar for Third sector learning and skills senior managers, leaders and practitioners. The event is also open to Funders, government department representatives and adult learning and skills providers.

This seminar will be an opportunity to share the outcomes from 2013/14 programme of work, to hear about recent policy developments (CLR, ESF, Apprenticeships) and the chance to discuss the benefits and challenges of these changes.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • David Russell, Chief Executive of the Education Training Foundation
  • John Hacking, Senior European Officer, Network for Europe
  • Michael O’Toole, Crown Representative for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector, Crown Commercial Service
