Nine reasons to join our growing Consortium

Are you looking for effective eLearning to help support your staff and volunteers? Join our thriving Consortium of more than 200 charitable organisations, all using a digital approach to developing knowledge and skills. Online learning saves our members time and money and has been invaluable during uncertain times.

Membership of the Charity Learning Consortium includes these nine key highlights


1. Highly engaging eLearning courseware
You’ll get a suite of more than 200 bite-sized eLearning courses, with animated videos and characterful voiceovers. A wide range of topics are covered, including health and safety, GDPR, equality and diversity and leadership. Short and engaging, most are between 10 and 20 minutes long. Mobile and tablet ready, they come with a range of supplementary resources such as infographics and workbooks. 

2. An easy to use Moodle learning management system (LMS)
We’ve customised Moodle’s LMS with some fantastic features and functionality. Your platform can be personalised, includes an online booking tool and can host a wide range of other resources too – including your own courses 

3. Learning pathways
Pathways is our latest LMS functionality, to help you create collections of courses – or learning journeys – that align to your organisation’s needs. This makes it easier for your learners to see exactly what they need to do and when. You can set managers up so they can create and track learning pathways, as well as use ones that have been pre-made. We know that charity L&D practitioners often work solo or in small teams, so this flexibility for managing pathways can help you sustain learning.

    4. A popular hierarchy reporting tool
    This tool allows you – and your managers – to assign content to different learner groups and run completion reports instantly. Unlike other learning management systems, we offer an unlimited number of fields and tags to classify your learners. This means, for example, that you can categorise learners by department, service, or region, so people only see what is relevant to their role.

    5. Automatic compliance tracking
    This popular functionality means you can easily prompt your learners to remain compliant. Our replay function reminds people to re-do an eLearning course, or sections of a course, when they need to. 

    6. Exclusive privileges to use our Clear Lessons video learning library
    The Clear Lessons library contains more than 1,500 videos and animations. Content includes charity specific topics like volunteering and fundraising, as well as general topics like equity, diversity and inclusion. Members get the benefit of single sign-on to our secure platform, giving users seamless access. Videos can also be embedded into the LMS we provide, to complement existing courses and resources and enhance your blended offering.

    7. Amazing support
    The Consortium prides itself on exceptional customer care. You’ll be assigned an account manager, who is there to support you with your eLearning and LMS every step of the way. This is backed up with a dedicated, inhouse technical team, handy support guides and online training.  

    8. A diverse community of 200+ charitable organisations
    Members love being able to share good practice at our quarterly members’ meetings and annual conference. These are complimentary events, with inspirational speakers, case studies, workshops and networking to drive L&D success. Previously in person, they’ve recently been online only. This has been so successful that we’re planning a hybrid approach in the future, continuing to offer a range of virtual events alongside face to face ones. 

    9. A wide range of extra goodies
    We develop key partnerships to bring our members a huge range of extra resources, discounts and opportunities. For example, we’ve published a range of helpful eBooks, negotiated a special charity price for Coaching Culture’s eLearning, have offered members free places to pilot Donald Taylor’s Webinar Master course and have sponsored delegate spaces for the Agile Lab for L&D Design with Perry Timms. If there is something specific that members need we will do our utmost to either create it, or find someone to supply it at a discount.
