Community Learning in Partnership | CLIP
CLIP was founded in 1995 by Janet Farr as a training organisation specialising in skills for the voluntary sector and the community. From early days, it found a niche in high quality training provision and management – particularly in rural Lincolnshire.
Over 25 years later CLIP is now a well-established organisation with the clear goal of widening participation in learning by people from rural, coastal and isolated communities. We work, with equal commitment, with young people aged 16-18 years who have under-achieved at school and with adults who are looking to refresh their skills – for personal development, family, higher education or work. CLIP is also committed to supporting people who have experienced mental health difficulties.
CLIP now works with over 2000 learners a year and has over 40 staff and tutors. Most of our work is located in our community learning centres in Mablethorpe, Market Rasen and Gainsborough.
