Community Learning Innovation Fund 'Projects in a Box'

The Community Learning Innovation Fund (CLIF) was a £4 million grants fund from the Skills Funding Agency, administered by NIACEdefinition, which funded 96 community learning projects in 2012/13. The projects have now published 'Projects in a Box' listed at These include all the information and resources needed to replicate the project. They may be of particular interest to EDIFdefinition projects because of their lessons learnt, and also for ideas on how to report on impact.

Making Progress

We are slowly getting everything together.

The Yammer-based online steering group is proving invaluable for generating ideas.  The researcher is putting together some robust tools and I'm getting on with planning the training days, the first of which is fully subscribed.  The coaches meet on Friday and we're discussing jelly babies.  The only part of the complex weave I've not given thought to yet are the online materials, which I had in mind as being prompts for thinking, but a timely LinkedIn link from a colleague is giving me some great food for thought...

Hope everyone else is enjoying their project as much as we are!
