Our vision for North Lanarkshire is of a strong vibrant community where everyone is committed to improving the quality of life, work, and attainment for themselves and others
Welcome to Your NL Community. Its great to see you! This website is brought to you by the North Lanarkshire Community Learning and Development Partnership. Community Learning and Development is all about empowering people, individually and collectively, to make positive changes in their lives, and in their communities, through learning. Please get involved and have your say on what learning means to you in your local community.

About us

The Community Learning and Development (CLD) Partnership consists of six local partnerships across North Lanarkshire. These partnerships involve many of the local services that have a role in developing Community Learning and Development through adult learning, college courses, community groups, employability programmes, health projects, libraries, volunteering, youth groups and everything in between! The six local partnerships link into one North Lanarkshire wide CLD Partnership which aims to provide strategic support for the sector.

Current North Lanarkshire wide partners include:

  • Culture NL
  • Job Centre Plus
  • New College Lanarkshire
  • NHS Lanarkshire
  • North Lanarkshire Council (including Learning & Leisure Services, Regeneration and Environmental Services, Housing & Social Work Services and the Chief Executive's Office)
  • Routes to Work
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire

The CLD Partnership has set out a strategy for 2014-18, along with an Action Plan for each of the six localities in North Lanarkshire. You can read more about our strategy and action plans here.
