Learning Provider Commitment

Glasgow’s Learning Partner Commitment Statement

Through the range of learning opportunities under the Glasgow’s Learning brand, children, young people, adults and families will have access to high quality learning. Glasgow’s Learning will work in partnership to assess need and remove barriers so that learners can benefit from a wide range of courses across the city to help learners achieve their life goals and improve their life circumstances.

All Glasgow’s Learning Partners commit to promote and practice within the CLD Values of:

  • Self-determination: respecting the individual and valuing the right of people to make their own choices
  • Inclusion: valuing equality of both opportunity and outcome, and challenging discriminatory practice
  • Empowerment: increasing the ability of individuals and groups to influence issues that affect them and their communities through individual and/ or collective action
  • Working collaboratively: maximising collaborative working relationships with the many agencies which contribute to CLD and/or which CLD contributes to, including collaborative work with participants, learners and communities
  • Promoting learning as a lifelong and life-wide activity: ensuring that individuals are aware of a range of learning opportunities and are able to access relevant options at any stage of their life
