The friends of the consortium are organisations who we have partnered with who understand the ethos of the consortium. Some of these organisations have provided us with special member discounts, whilst with others we are highlighting discounts they already offer to charities but members may not be aware. Please contact us for further information, demonstration access or pricing.
We’ve negotiated incredibly generous discounts for Articulate’s products – for CLC members and for all third sector organisations. You can now purchase easy to use tools at greatly reduced prices, to help build your own eLearning content, and make the most of your L&D budgets. Tom Kuhlmann also leads our exclusive annual eLearning design workshop – at prices you can afford.
The Technology Trust (formerly Charity Technology Trust) and the tt-exchange are well known supporters of the use of technology in the third sector, so it’s no surprise that we are Friends! It’s through the tt-exchange that we’ve been able to offer a free flip camera to every one of our members, for a unique collaborative video learning project.
The eLearning Network – like the Consortium – is a membership organisation designed to help its members make the most of eLearning. Well we’re all in favour of that! We’ve negotiated a special package for Consortium members to join the eLN, and attend its live and online events, and access its resources, mentoring and support.
Every year we support Learning at Work Week (formerly Learning at Work Day) by making our entire eLearning suite absolutely free for the nominated week in May to charities working in the voluntary sector. Look out for announcements on site. Read on to find out more about the Learning at Work Week campaign.
LPI is a global institute for learning & development professionals. It works to enhance the skills and status of individuals and organisations engaged in learning activities, while assessing the quality of learning services. We’re proud to support its work and organisations which join the Consortium also get complimentary membership to LPI.
Learning Technologies, held in January each year, is Europe’s leading showcase of technology used for learning at work – which is why you’ll always spot us there. The conference has expert sessions from industry leading thinkers and visionaries, while the exhibition offers expert information, advice sessions and a free seminar programme running in five theatres.
We really like what neuTrain are doing: they’re a voluntarily run, not for profit website where L&D professionals share classroom based training materials. There is no log in process to view all the slides and trainers notes you’ll need, to deliver your own classroom based training courses. Materials can be reviewed so you can see what others have thought of the content.
We’re proud to be an Ambassador for Towards Maturity and wholeheartedly support its invaluable annual benchmark into the use of learning technologies. Laura Overton, MD of Towards Maturity, leads our inspirational workshops at our Members Seminars and carries out bespoke research on our behalf into the Learning needs of the third sector.
We’re great supporters of the World of Learning Conference & Exhibition and every year offer an exclusive discount to the conference to all charities. The annual event, usually held at the beginning of October, showcases the latest developments in L&D, with live workshops, one-to-one consultations, free seminars and its renowned annual conference. And of course, we’ll be there.
