Community Learning and Development Managers Scotland (CLDMS) represents the managers of a variety of¬† services in Scotland’s 32 local authorities (see our contact list). Many authorities have a service that is called ”Community Learning and Development”. Others use different names, or organise their support to the various ‘strands’ of Community Learning and Development in different ways. But all have managers who recognise that they share a common professional approach and play an active part in our network.

These managers also represent, and through their work support, partnerships with a wide range of partners. These are people  in the voluntary sector, educational institutions, the NHS, Police and others who have a role to play in different aspects of CLD.

CLDMS seeks not only to provide a national focus on professional issues, but also to promote improvements to the quality and extent of CLD provision in all sectors and demonstrate and draw attention to the benefits it can bring in the lives of individuals and communities.

We meet as a group at least four times a year. We have active subgroups looking at particular topics and are represented on several national forums.

We acknowledge the support of Education Scotland towards coordinating our work and delivering our activities.
