It was a great day at the Members’ Seminar on Thursday 23rd June and thank you to everyone who battled through the floods to get to us! We had some inspiring sessions on summoning strengths, evaluation, learning strategy and creative compliance to name just a few.
We released our very own Josh Willcock from his development den for the day to show you RoadMap, a fab new enhancement that is going to make your CLC learning management system much more user friendly. We hope you will be keen to implement in your organisation.
We have read each and every one of your feedback forms and will take all of your ideas on board. After all, these are your events and we want to bring you just what you need and enjoy.
Below is a brief update for those members who couldn’t come along – we hope you will join us next time. You can register your attendance for 22nd September here.
Ian Pettigrew from Kingfisher Coaching kicked off the day with a 30 minute session to help us summon and harness our inner strengths with plenty of interactive exercises and chatter. You can view his slides here.
Harri Candy from Victim Support provided an engaging presentation on how she has developed her site to help her staff and volunteers learn to love using Moodle. You can view the slides here.
Matt Brewer from Markel International focused on how to get creative with compliance courses and continued to chat through ideas with member’s right through the lunch break. You can view his slides here.
Laura Overton from Towards Maturity encouraged members to feel to fear and really get to the bottom of evaluation and how it can be used to prove the worth of L&D to overall business needs. Her slides can be found here.

Martin spoke briefly about the Charity Learning Awards and how we plan to run them this year. We encourage you to draw from Laura’s session on demonstrating the value of your L&D department and let us know the great things you’ve been up to. What challenges have you faced? How are you overcoming them?
Here is the link to the Survey Monkey mentioned in the session where you can register your intent to enter by Friday 15th July.
Looking to enter an industry award? We would love to hear and get involved. Please touch base with your account manager to see how we can work together.
Josh Willcock, our in-house developer took you through RoadMap and we hope you’ll agree that it looks very swish and performs a lot more intuitively than our standard Moodle site. We’re currently in the testing phase and will update you as soon as it’s ready to be fully released.
Please get in touch with your account manager to express your interest and make sure you’re on the list for transfer.
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions on the feedback form. We will be sending a RoadMap information email out to you all shortly which will address these questions.
Robin Hoyle from Learnworks presented an engaging workshop on building a strategy for informal learning with plenty of great tips to take away. He also offered CLC members a discount on his latest book ‘Informal Learning in Organizations: how to create a continuous learning culture’, the code can be found on his slides which are here.
Gill Chester from Little Man Project provided a workshop on creating induction programmes that work. This was based on the findings from a workshop with members at the end of last year and included lots of group discussion on current challenges and how induction can be improved for new starters. Thank you to all of the members who contributed to this. You can find the slides here.
Gill has also provided a write up of the activity notes and the report from the event held last November.
