NEWS: The Charity Learning Consortium becomes a Gold Official Partner of UK Charity Week
UK CHARITY WEEK is proud to welcome the return of the Charity Learning Consortium as a Gold Official Partner Business of the 2020 campaign.
UK Charity Week which this year takes place 7th – 13th December 2020, will see the return of popular daily themes such as Celebration of Charity, Charity BIG Bake, Volunteers’ Day, UK Charity Week’s Christmas Jumper Day, Charity Today Awards’ Annual Showcase, Fundraising Day and, of course, Tuesday 8th December’s release of the Charity Today Charity Sector Annual Review & Report 2020
#UKCharityWeek is a campaign designed to give the people of the United Kingdom an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda, at a time of the year when people are statistically at their most giving.
Lee B. Rayment, Founder of the UK Charity Week campaign said:
“We are delighted to have the Charity Learning Consortium partnering with UK Charity Week as a Gold Official Partner Business again this year. Since our inception in 2009, we have promoted and given a fundraising platform to thousands of charities across the UK ensuring they have the opportunity to both fundraise and showcase themselves.”
Acknowledging the challenges presented to the charity sector by coronavirus this year Mr Rayment added:
“It’s more vital than ever that the sector comes together in an effort to ensure the lessons of COVID-19 are learned. I believe education and discussion will be playing a big part in that recovery.”
The Charity Learning Consortium started back in 2001 when eLearning wasn’t widely available to charities, it was just too expensive. CEO and Founder Martin Baker knew charities needed to train their staff and volunteers while keeping their costs down. Hence he created the Charity Learning Consortium, bringing six founding members together to mutually fund and share resources.
Jump to the present and The Charity Learning Consortium has an industry-leading, bespoke learning management system (LMS); professional courseware; and a community of L&D professionals from almost 200 charitable organisations sharing knowledge and expertise – all at a realistic price.
‘TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER THAN ON OUR OWN, AND IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.’
Martin Baker, CEO and founder of The Charity Learning Consortium said:
“I’m proud to be supporting UK Charity Week again this year. It’s been quite a year for charities so far, so anything I can do to showcase and support the invaluable work they do is very welcome. Sharing the lessons learned from coronavirus – particularly from rapid, digital transformation – is critical for the sector to recover. Skills are at the heart of this, and I champion the use of cost-effective eLearning to support charity staff and volunteers to continually develop their skills.”
