Supporting Outcome Focused Practice (2007 - 2008)

Client: Learning Connections, Scottish Government

SCDC led a consortium involving Youth Link Scotland, the Linked Work and Training Trust and Avante Consulting to conduct a series of seminars with representatives of Community Learning and Development Partnerships across Scotland exploring the challenges of outcome focused practice in each of the key areas of CLD practice - community capacity building, youth work and adult learning. In the light of these seminars reports were prepared addressing key issues for each area of practice that had been identified. These were published by Learning Connections in 2008 as an aid to be used by strategic managers in CLD to reflect on practice, facilitate continued dialogue at local level and develop a strategic approach to supporting outcome-focussed practice in CLD.
