Research to identify key issues from national discussion on CLD Strategic Guidance

This project provided an analysis of a national discussion on the content and implementation of refreshed strategic guidance on community learning and development (CLD) for policy makers and practitioners. The national discussion was led by Education Scotland to enable a wide range of partners with specific responsibility for delivering CLD, community planning and other related roles and those that have a key role in CLD such as third sector organisations, Scotland’s Colleges, other agencies now adopting elements of a CLD perspective such as the NHS, to give their views. The analysis was based on notes from five national and 2 bilateral meetings and the 152 responses to an on-line questionnaire.
