Sessions, workshops and networking


Although we’ve missed seeing you all face to face, we’re so grateful that we can still network with you all virtually. This session was built around questions that we had crowdsourced from members prior to the event. It was great to be part of the discussions and finding solutions.

Our next networking opportunity will take place on Thursday 24th June. St John Ambulance, an accredited apprenticeship provider, is launching a Team Leader level 3 apprenticeship and will be running the first cohort group with members from CLC. Sign up below to get involved.

Tom shared with us why video is a great tool for delivering learning. It’s cheap, engaging and quick to make. But, as with anything, it can be intimidating to start with. In the session, Tom explained a simple formula for making engaging video along with resources to get you started.

EDI session: Inclusive leadership

Miranda Cain, Managing Director at Elev8

Lee Jones, Sales Director at Elev8

Miranda Cain is a learning professional with over 30 years of experience, across both senior operational roles, and consulting in workplace inclusivity. This has seen Miranda break through incredibly challenging conversations with leadership groups around topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion. Lee has over 20 years senior level sales and consulting experience and a background in operational delivery.

Together, their session on inclusive leadership covered why prioritising inclusion is not only a matter of legal, moral and ethical responsibility but the fact that it also has a huge impact on business performance outcomes. In addition they covered:

  • Defining what D&I is and is not
  • Why – the social, moral and economic value of inclusive cultures
  • Dispelling the myths and legends around D&I Identity
  • Perspective blindness
  • The impact of exclusion (our personal experiences) and leaning into the conversation

Fill out the survey to provide Elev8 with a sense of how you lead people in your organisation and how included they feel in the workplace. 

WORKSHOP: Using H5P authoring tool to create engaging courses
Charlotte Evans, Marketing Executive at the Charity Learning Consortium


WORKSHOP: The fundamentals of design
Gill Chester, Director at Little Man Project

Creating Moodle courses with H5P Moodle course pages are a great way to create quick and easy-to-use courses for learners. In this session, Charlotte walked us through the H5P tool, which allows you to create interactions directly in Moodle and make them available in your Moodle courses.

The recording will be of particular interest to those who want to make the most of their Moodle site. Whether you are new to Moodle course pages or an expert, we are sure you will find something useful.

Gill then talked through the key things you need to think about before creating your own eLearning courses.

Sign up to Charlotte and Gill’s follow up session on the 8th July where you can bring your idea for a course your learners need and get expert advice on creating it!
