Welcome to the North Yorkshire Community Learning Partnership Website
In September 2012 seven of North Yorkshire’s major providers of adult learning joined together to try to increase the range of learning opportunities that could be made available all across the county.
Craven College, Harrogate College, North Yorkshire County Council, Selby College, the Workers’ Educational Association, Yorkshire Coast College, Scarborough (now Scarborough TEC) and Your Consortium formed the North Yorkshire Community Learning Partnership and committed to work more closely together to maximise the impact the funding available to deliver learning and skills to students all across North Yorkshire.
Askham Bryan College and Scarborough Sixth Form College joined the partnership in 2013 and, in 2017, a number of other partners with an interest in Adult and Community Learning joined the re-configured countywide Strategy Group.

Marc Mason, Commissioning and Developments Manager for North Yorkshire County Council now chairs the Partnership’s Strategy Group and members have approved terms of Memorandum of Agreement. The original core members continue to pay a “membership fee” pro-rata to the amount of funding they have historically received from the Skills Funding Agency for community learning. This has enabled a Partnership Coordinator to be employed on a part time basis to help them pursue their priorities. The Partnership recruited Chris McGee into this crucial role in 2012.
Chris has extensive experience in the learning and skills sector as he was, until 2012, Assistant Director (Learning, Youth and Skills) for the Children and Young People’s Service at North Yorkshire County Council.
