The CLD Standards Council and Education Scotland have commissioned Rocket Science UK Ltd to conduct research into the community learning and development workforce.
The initial online survey phase has been completed. We have had a great response – thanks to the well over 1,000 individuals and organisations who have provided information and contributed their views.
Views from practitioners, volunteers, employer organisations and stakeholders are essential to be able to understand who is doing what across Scotland. Rocket Science are conducting follow-up in-depth interviews with a sample of around 50 people. The research will help us to better advocate for community learning and development, and better support the workforce, volunteers, employers and organisations with the training and development needs.
The CLDSC will be exploring the messages from the research as they emerge, and taking a lead in identifying the issues they highlight and the action needed.
