Hear from our members…

The support and guidance provided by GMLPN has been invaluable over the last 12 months, particulary in light of Covid-19. Alliance Learning have benefitted from several additional webinars and meetings in light of the pandemic and this has helped support the business through these testing times

Alliance Learning

This year in particular has been the most turbulent and challenging for all, which we continue to work through. GMLPN have been supportive helping providers to connect, develop, share best practice and align national and regional skills priorities allowing providers to response and build a resilience not only as network but a sector.
