Find information about Community Learning and Development (CLD) plan 2021- 24

The West Lothian Community Learning and Development Partnership Plan adopts the performance-based approach utilised by West Lothian Council, and its Community Planning Partners in meeting shared goals and outcomes.
CLD has an active role in empowering people individually and collectively to make positive changes in their lives and their communities through learning.
The Requirements for Community Learning and Development (Scotland) Regulations 2013, place a legal requirement on local authorities to provide leadership and direction ensuring that third sector organisations and other public services are working effectively together. The CLD Regulations are subordinate legislation made under section 2 of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980. Section 1 of the 1980 Act requires each local authority to secure adequate and efficient provision in their area of both school education and further education, which includes CLD, and is not age limited.
