Find out more about who we are and the team that keeps the Charity Learning Consortium running smoothly
Who we are
We all come from a range of different backgrounds, which helps us deliver something rather different compared to other eLearning providers. We’re proud of what we offer. What drives us is helping charities achieve real results for their staff and volunteers.
How we started
We started back in 2001 when eLearning wasn’t widely available to charities, it was just too expensive. Martin Baker knew charities needed to train their staff and volunteers while keeping their costs down. Hence he created the Charity Learning Consortium, bringing six founding members together to mutually fund and share resources.
Jump to 2017 and we have an industry leading, bespoke learning management system (LMS), professional courseware and a community of L&D professionals sharing knowledge – all at a realistic price.
What makes us different
We don’t just provide you with an LMS and leave you to it. We give you a dedicated account manager and help set up everything you’ll need. You become a member of a community, with the opportunity to learn from others in the learning and development industry. We host an annual conference, regular meetings, online training, Q&As and webinars.

A lot has changed since we first formed with just six charities in 2001. We now have more than 130 members, and offer eLearning to around two million staff and volunteers! Have a look at the fantastic features and functionalities that we now offer. Can we tempt you to join us?
We’re proud to be supporting the 2018 Charity Digital Skills Report, which is taking the pulse of digital transformation in the third sector in the UK. Please join in and share your experience.
People are always at the heart of technological change said Martin Baker, as he handed out the Charity Learning Awards 2017. Read on to find out how this year’s stars have worked tirelessly behind the scenes, to make a difference to a community of almost a million learners in charities across the UK.
Josh Willcock, the Charity Learning Consortium’s very own technical whizz, likes a challenge. Frustrated at being told Moodle functionality to prompt learners to remain complaint was ‘impossible’ to create, he set about turning it into a reality. The resulting technical feat makes life easier for L&D professionals as well as the learners they support.
