What we do

The TSNLA is the national voice for Third Sector learning and skills providers.  It both informs and is informed by national policy, and produces a monthly policy update bulletin to help its members understand what is happening across the sector.

To deliver its work, TSNLA also works with a range of partner organisations.

Members are encouraged to participate in debate and the sharing of resources and expertise, and we have specific pages on this website to showcase these.  In addition, Trustees and Investor Members become involved in both setting and responding to the national policy agenda.
