Painting a picture of success HLC’s partner organisations Foresight, Children & Family Action and CERT were amongst many other groups to run Adult Learners Week Events in May. Foresight in particular hosted a number of pro-

grammes including Glass Engraving, Animation Photos, Portrait Painting, Glass Painting and a History Time Capsule. The Glass Engraving session involved service users etching their own glass

with a chosen design with a specialised pen. The pattern was placed behind the glass and the design was engraved on with care. Service users who took part in this class got to keep the glass to display or use at their pleasure.

Portrait painting taught service users how to create a portrait from a picture. The tutor showed everyone how to achieve the right dimensions for each picture. Cont. page 7

Joy - as Braille course is saved A course teaching Braille in Sheffield has been rescued from closure after a charity stepped in to provide funding.

“It seemed wrong to me that blind and partially sighted people should be denied access to such training.

Sheffield College announced in March they were axing their Braille class because of a funding shortfall and falling numbers.

At the time we were putting together a funding bid to Humber Learning Consortium to deliver some courses in Woodford and we wondered if the funder would support the costs of delivering some form of Braille tuition as well.”

The college said it could no longer afford to run the course due to changes in the way the Learning and Skills Council fund adult education. But the class is to be resurrected later this month after the Woodthorpe Development Trust stepped in with a £5,000 grant. Karen Dineen deputy manager of the trust said

Brightside and Hillsborough MP David Blunkett, who has been registered blind since birth said “I am very pleased that external funding has been found to restart the course.

Government starts talks with sector on community groups target The government has opened informal talks with Navca, Community Development Foundation and others about how to deliver the Big Society vision of enabling every citizen to join a neighbourhood group.

just a family requirement to sample the courses and enjoy a new experience which could stand many people in good stead.”

Neil Cleeveley, Navca’s director of policy and communications, said the Office for Civil Society had not launched a formal consultation but “they are asking questions in an informal way”.

For more information about the Braille course call the Woodthorpe Development Trust on 0114 2654165

“We are making it clear that there are plenty of organisations already out there that could host an army of community development workers and provide support to neighbourhood groups, without them having to reinvent the wheel,” he said.

“The task now is to encourage those with a broader interest - and not

The government has promised to launch a fund to support the creation of new neighbourhood groups, which is to be funded using money from repaid Futurebuilders loans.

New priorities for Skills Funding Agency Business Secretary Vince Cable writes to the Skills Funding Agency Vince Cable has written to the Skills Funding Agency with a new set of priorities in the agency’s grant letter for 2010-11. The letter states that the most important goal is ‘to help deliver a vibrant economy through empowering learners’. Vince Cable set out his key priorities for the Skills Funding Agency which include: * supporting progression, and strengthening the supply of technician level skills, particularly through Level 3 apprenticeships; prioritising vocational qualifications that are understood and valued by employers; and working with employers, the UKCES and SSCs on promoting greater employer engagement and better utilisation of skills; * reducing the number of 18-24 year olds who are NEET by funding a wide range of routes into further and higher education;

* developing a programme of Lifelong Learning Accounts to create informed and empowered learners;

The letter confirms the refocusing of resources with £200m of Train to Gain funding diverted to the delivery of 50,000 additional apprenticeships (£150m) and £50m for capital investment in FE colleges. The remaining Train to Gain funding should be allocated to support ‘high quality work based training’ by companies of all sizes. Vince Cable said that there is a government

Legislation that could see arts, heritage and sport each receiving an extra £50 million a year will be placed before Parliament in September, the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, Jeremy Hunt has announced. Under the proposals the arts, heritage and sport good causes will increase to 20%. The Big Lottery Fund will receive the remaining 40% but it will focus its support exclusively on the voluntary and community sector.

* encouraging an increased number of people to participate in adult and community learning; and * implementing sector-based joint investment proposals in high-growth and dynamic areas of the economy and contribute to the development of a new growth and innovation fund.

changes proposed for Lottery funding

Mr Hunt said “I will make sure that funds to that sector are protected with the Big Lottery fund focusing its support exclusively on that sector.” commitment to free up the sector to respond to employers’ and learners’ needs and priorities. The Skills Funding Agency will be expected to take a lead role in ensuring that colleges and training organisations ‘have greater freedom to innovate and excel, within a rigorous and transparent process of accountability through information on quality and performance’. Finally, the letter calls on the agency to be an ‘exemplar’ in consulting with the sector, employers and learners to devise and reshape services and processes.

From front page The session was such a success that users would like to do more painting within the centre. Children and Family Action (CFA) organised three events which took place in Goole, Hornsea and Withernsea and invited other training providers to come along with their stands and/or information about what is available for the members of each community. In Hornsea CFA put on an arts and craft activity day to encourage people to come in and see the wide

range of support available through the different training providers in the area. In Withernsea CFA delivered a programme of Maths, English and Asdan and some IT training courses at their centre on Queen Street. The learners were encouraged to produce posters for the event and to get involved in the preparation and delivery to enhance their skills in communication and social interaction. CERT arranged a special awards event for learners who had successfully completed learning programmes since Septem-

final word

Big Society? The Power of Partnerships Andy Crossland, Chief Executive of Humber Learning Consortium What does the coalition’s much vaunted ‘Big Society’ actually mean? The vision of making our society stronger by getting more people working together to run their own affairs heralds a significant shift away from ‘big government’ towards localism and greater community involvement in service delivery. On the one hand this shift could be viewed as an opportunity for voluntary & community organisations, which are well-placed to understand and respond to local needs. However, concerns have been raised about the capacity of these groups to rise to the challenge, particularly when government funding will be badly hit in the forthcoming spending cuts. The emphasis on voluntarism also fails to acknowledge that many people will have little spare time to give to the Big Society if, as expected, they are struggling to stay in, or find work. Returning to the issue of capacity voluntary organisations have a long track record of working together in partnership to support each other and deliver joined up services to

their clients. Research shows that voluntary organisations working in networks and partnerships are typically more innovative and successful than those who choose to plough their own “developmental” furrow because they have more opportunities to observe and share best practice. HLC is a classic example of this. We bring together a wide range of voluntary organisations in the Humber to deliver learning opportunities to the sub-region’s most deprived and marginalised communities. Through our consortium approach, partner organisations benefit from HLC’s capacity-building expertise including, Quality Improvement Networks, one-to-one advice and support, and continuing professional development courses. Many commentators now believe that consortium approaches are a way forward for voluntary and community organisations gearing up to the Big Society.

ganisations to support smaller community groups in delivering their Communities for Children (CfC) programme. An evaluation of CfC has demonstrated that a consortiumstyle model, incorporating networking opportunities for partner organisations, creates a more sustainable network of service providers, a better service for clients, and because the lead agency is a fellow voluntary organisation, it engenders a greater sense of connection, partnership, and immediacy. So, is a consortium, or ‘community partner’, approach the way forward if the voluntary and community sector is to turn the Big Society into an opportunity to do things differently? I certainly think so. Over the last decade HLC has developed a nationally recognised expertise in bringing voluntary organisations together to deliver high quality services. We’re here to share that experience...

It isn’t just happening here in the UK either. The Australian government uses a system of ‘community partners’ – experienced voluntary or-
