Cardiff Third Sector Learning and Enterprise Network was launched in October 2011. It offers free membership to third sector organisations that work in the learning and social enterprise field in Cardiff.

  

As a member of the Network you will:

  • Be connected to other third sector organisations, to liaise and share thinking, learning and good practice;
  • Gain knowledge of the sector’s contribution by mapping existing activities, analysing needs and highlighting gaps in existing services;
  • Have the opportunity to contribute to strategic knowledge and direction in the field;
  • Be able to feed into, and influence, other regional and national networks.

   

Here are the priorities of the network:

  • Improving online resources and linking between Cardiff Third Sector Council (C3SC) and the wider learning sector;
  • Bringing out learner- and provider-led information, giving attention to the complexity of the information and in a user-friendly format;
  • Promoting and managing the flow of information and keeping it up to date;
  • Raising awareness of network organisations and what they can offer, so that appropriate signposting and referrals can take place;
  • Linking to Cardiff Community Learning Network to ease the flow of communication between the two networks.
