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.

Alistair Gourlay who is the Head of the Adult Learning Services for North Yorkshire County Council and City of York 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.
A range of professional, administrative and financial services are now provided by Your Consortium to support the partnership as it pursues its priorities. Sue Vasey, who has extensive experience of the learning, skills and voluntary sectors is now contracted by Your Consortium as the named contact to provide Professional Support Services.
