The Community Learning and Development (Scotland) Regulations 2013 place a statutory requirement on local authorities to publish a plan every three years.
Community Learning and Development (CLD) plays a central part in ensuring individuals, families and communities across West Dunbartonshire reach their potential through lifelong learning, mutual self-help and community organisation - and that the available support and opportunities are community-led and built around people's aspirations.
This is the second plan, covering the period 2018 – 2021. The Plan has been developed on the basis of widespread consultation and analysis of the national and local policy environment. It also builds on the lessons learned from the West Dunbartonshire 2015 – 2018 Community Learning and Development Plan and aims to support efforts to make West Dunbartonshire a good place, to live, learn, work and explore.
The current plan will remain in draft form until it is formally endorsed by the appropriate Community Planning committees in October 2018.
