Why become a Friend?

We run 12 to 16 policy seminars a year on education, pre- and post-19 training, employment, skills and adult learning at our headquarters in Westminster. Our seminars go beyond information giving to focus on analysis and discussion, and stimulating, high quality debate.

Last year, our programme included seminars on Apprenticeship Funding Reform, Employer Ownership of Skills, The Government Review of Vocational Qualifications, and What the Political Parties are saying about Education and Skills. Our speakers included Peter Lauener, Chief Executive of the Education Funding Agency, Michael Davis, Chief Executive, UKCES, and Deirdre Hughes, Chair of the National Careers Council in England.

Friends' membership will give your organisation one free place at every policy seminar and 50% discount on all additional places. There are other benefits too see below for a full list.

By becoming a Friend you join other influential organisations who are already members. You will also be making your own contribution to maintaining the Campaign for Learning as an independent voice for learning in every context and at every stage of life.

What's happening in 2014/2015?

With the 2014/2015 programme spanning the build-up to the next general election, this will be an exciting time to analyse and discuss policy movements and intentions as they develop.

Our first seminar of the new year will be on 23rd September with Michael Davis, Chief Executive of UKCES, who will speak on 'Employer Ownership of Skills Current Position and Future Prospects'.
