TSNLA Localism Workshops

The TSNLA is putting on 4 workshops (with funding from Awards for All) to support VCSE providers of learning and skills to engage with the new adult funding arrangements emerging through Local Enterprise Partnerships and other localised funding arrangements.

In any new structures there is a danger of the VCSE contribution being overlooked and these workshops will enable VCSE providers to understand and to effectively engage with the new systems. A set of guidance materials will be developed to enable VCSE providers to understand the new arrangements and to guide in engaging with these. The materials will cover both how to understand what the new funding arrangements are and how best to contact and engage with them.

The project is being led by Tim Ward, trustee of TSNLA, recent FETL Fellow and the TSNLA lead person in representing the sector with the Skills Funding Agency.

Workshops have already been held in Bristol and Nottingham, but there are two more still to come.

The workshops are free and scheduled from 10am to 1pm as follows:

London: 16th June at Voluntary Action Islington

Leeds: 22nd June at the St Georges Centre
