LearnEAST Consortia Project – LeaP Too…
Leap Too… was an extension to the original LeaP project.
The project aimed to develop the achievements of the original project and continue the good work started.
From March 2012 – October 2012 the project delivered a series of activities designed to enable Voluntary and Community Sector learning providers, within the LearnEAST network, to develop their capacity and capability to hold and deliver publicly funded provision either individually or as part of sub contracted partnerships and to engage more actively with the skills agenda.
The Key outcomes of the project:
- The priorities of VCS organisations, from the network memberships of the learn EAST consortia, in relation to capacity building to become fit for purpose for the delivery of public funded provision were ascertained.
128 organisations across the 6 regional counties completed a survey monkey questionnaire to let us know their opinions. The survey collected some very useful information about our region’s VCS priorities and issues. The information gathered helped to inform other activity delivered through the project.
- A series of 18 FREE 1/2 day workshops were delivered at various locations across the region during June, July, September and October 2012. 100 individuals from 83 organisations took advantage of the free workshops places.
- A series of 7 ‘Top Tips’ guides, based on the workshop topics have been produced, aimed to support the overall membership base of the learn EAST consortia. Download the Top Tips now!:

- A regional event to link 60 VCS member organisations to 3 prime contractors for the region, developing dialogue and building relationships between them was also delivered through the project.The event took place on MONDAY 8th October 2012.
