On Thursday 22nd September 2016 we invited CLC members to join us in London for our quarterly meet-up. It was a day of sharing experiences, engaging workshops and plenty of updates on the exciting new developments we are working on for members.

A huge thank you to Laura Overton, Towards Maturity; Rokas Buciunas, Restless Development; Issy Nancarrow, Campaign Learning; Hesketh Emden, proInsight; and Vince Whittle, Performance Edge Ltd for bringing us valuable presentations and fab tips to make use of back in the workplace.

You can also read the main takeaways as written by Ryan at Nancarrow Partnerships here…

Resources from the day


Member Presentation: Restless Development

Rokas Buciunas, People & Performance Coordinator at Restless Development, shared his journey to launch eLearning across the globe with limited resources. The session focused on four tangible tips for its successful implementation. I think we can all agree that Rokas and his team of global learning superheroes were inspirational and the presentation provided a lot of food for thought.

Martin Baker

CLC Update

Martin Baker, the Consortium’s founder, gave a general update and reached out to ask what platform members would like as a community space online. Could it be a closed group on either Facebook or LinkedIn? If you have any further thoughts on this let us know by emailing martinbaker@charitylearning.org. We understand that it needs to be as slick and straight forward as possible so please do feedback.

Martin also shared an example of the new Jenison courseware which has been put together using VideoScribe. The results are short and engaging, 3-5 minute videos, covering key compliance topics. We look forward to hearing more as and when they are released.

Upcoming titles include: Health & Safety; Equality & Diversity; Data Protection; Social and Corporate Responsibilities; and Food Safety & Hygiene. Ask your account manager to see the full list of titles.

Something else that you’re looking for? We would love your feedback so please let your account manager know if there are additional topics you require.

Issy Nancarrow

Workshop: Putting the punch into engagement

Issy Nancarrow from Campaign Learning hosted a fantastic workshop on engaging learners using marketing techniques. She got the room thinking about every point of contact we have with our end users and shared ways in which we can truly utilise those opportunities’. Take a look at Issy’s FLAG model in the article linked below. Issy also mentioned the very powerful Kirkpatrick® model, and if you’re not familiar you can learn more in a webinar recording we hosted a while back.

Lightening Talks

The system includes 50 keypads and 200 online app voting licenses. If you are interested in purchasing your own OMBEA set, contact paul.jenner@ombea.com quoting ‘Charity Learning Consortium’ for a demo and referral discount.


Gill ChesterCLC Induction Template – Gill Chester from Little Man Project introduced the new CLC Induction Template, demonstrating how it can be used to create a smart and customised induction programme. This template is now available, and it’s free! If you would like a copy please contact your account manager. As mentioned in the session, the template does require a basic understanding of Articulate Storyline but once you have this, the slides included within the template explain what to do. You can also purchase some training time with Gill to get up to speed and use the template yourself – this will stand you in good stead for any future courseware creation using Storyline. Gill also hosts a free ‘Storyline Ask the Expert’ session every other Friday – talk to your account manager for more information.
