About LSRN

The Learning and Skills Network is an open network enabling people interested in research and the use of evidence to share ideas and work together. Convenors organise events in the regions and a National Planning Group does the same nationally. LSRN aims to help people, in going about their professional practice, engage with research and development. It does this by demonstrating the value of research and development, helping build the capacity of the sector, exploring ways of increasing the influence of findings. The aim and purposes have remained steady since the Network began in 1997.

About LSRN in Greater Manchester:

Ashton Sixth Form College has become the area’s Learning and Skills Research Network (LSRN) base. The college orgsanises at last three events a year for those with an interest in practitioner enquiry in further education. It is open to all Further Education/Sixth Form/Adult and Community/Alternative Provision/Training Provider staff. This is a space where you can network with others engaged in practitioner research, get the support of colleagues, develop your skills as a practitioner researcher and hear from academics.

About TELL:

The Teacher Education in Lifelong Learning (TELL) Research Network, much like LSRN, is also a free to join network. Originally its focus was with the work of teacher educators. TELL aims to enhance practice in teacher education for the post compulsory sectors across the UK, to highlight and promote the achievements of LL teacher education, to ensure teacher educators have opportunities to engage in the network, to support and promote innovation and development in LL teacher education, to contribute to building research capacity, to become a trusted and authoritative voice for the interests and aspirations of LL teacher education, to connect LL teacher educators across, to contribute to policy development and implementation in the field of Teacher Education and to curate, collate and disseminate LL Teacher education research, history, information, events and activities across the UK.
