LCR Learn

Following the Liverpool City Region Area Based Review and the recommendation that a prospectus of advanced and higher level technical skills be developed, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority have worked with national and local stakeholders to produce LCR Learn.

This dynamic prospectus is the first of its type. The prospectus allows the learner to choose and select and save their own individualised prospectus across multiple institutions.

It expands on the initial Area Based Review recommendation to detail locally available advanced and higher level technical skills to support employer and learner choice and now incorporates learning from all levels and ages available in the City Region.

The site has been informed by College and ILP provider submissions detailed on the National Careers Service (NCS) Course Directory. The NCS have kindly made changes to the way in which they structure their developer tools to facilitate links to LCR Learn .

LCR Learn is still in development but GMLPF is keen to ensure that it works effectively, provides an opportunity for members to highlight the range of provision they offer locally and to give learners up to date information on what learning programmes are available locally. LCR Learn should pick and grab information off the NCS Course Directory and automatically highlight it in a search.

Can I ask members to ensure their submissions the National Careers Service Course Directory are accurate, timely and up to date and are as detailed as possible?  Can I also ask you to test the link and see if it captures and presents the full extent your current offer as this will become a valuable means of promoting your organisation and learning offer to learners, employers and stakeholders alike. If you have any issues that you would wish to highlight please let me know (e-mail ian@gmlpf.net) and I will liaise with the Combined Authority.
