CONTRACT WON FOR THIRD SECTOR PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE
We are delighted to announce that the TSNLA has won one of five contracts to develop a Professional Exchange funded by the Education and Training Foundation.
The Exchange will be created in partnership with Enable in the East Midlands, V learning Net and ODILS (Open Doors International Language School) in the South West and London Learning Consortium and ELATT Connected Learning in the London and South East.
Based on key elements such as exchange of experience and knowledge, a 'bottom-up' approach to identifying Continuing Professional Development needs, the integration of the Professional Standards and extended reach through participant sharing, the Exchange will build around one national and three regional professional networks and deliver free at the point of delivery face to face CPD sessions having identified needs through pre-participating self assessment questionnaires.
One of the key features of the programme will be in calling on participants to share their own knowledge and expertise (hence the exchange) both through initial CPD delivery and by sharing the content afterwards with at least two other colleagues.
Right now we are in the set-up phase but will be releasing more information soon and will let everyone you know how you can take part in this exciting venture.

Given current developments at the Skills Funding Agency the key TSNLA activity is focused around the introduction of Minimum Contract Levels, their impact on sector providers and the learner and the changes in ESF procurement.
The Third Sector National Learning Alliance (TSNLA) is the voice for all Third Sector learning and skills providers. The Third Sector is uniquely placed to meet the diverse and changing learning needs of our present day society. To fulfil its potential, it needs a strong and coherent voice.
