This year it’s a Conference with a difference! On Tuesday 7 November we will host #CLDSCConf2023 as part of The Gathering!

As well as the Lecture CLD: Live Long and Prosper (no we haven’t gone Star Trek daft) we’re hosting three seminars/workshops – see our event timetable below:

  • There are no Career Pathways in CLD – or are there? Explore the career pathways that currently exist for CLD practitioners at all stages and identify barriers and solutions to participation. 11 am till 12 pm
  • CLD research influencing practice – and vice versa! Presentations from CLD practitioners/researchers followed by questions and discussion. 1.30 pm till 2.30 pm
  • CLD Standards Council – More Members More Clout! Find out how you can support the recognition of CLD as a professional approach with confident competent practitioners. 3 pm till 4 pm
  • CLD: Live Long and Prosper: Evening Lecture. Consider how Community Learning and Development contributes to the wellbeing economy, enhancing the chances for people to live a good life. 4.30 pm till 7 pm

The Gathering takes place over 7 and 8 November 2023 at the EICC, Edinburgh and we will also have a stall in the Exhibition Area for both days, so please pop along and say hello!
