About ELLP


The East Lothian Learning Partnership is concerned with the promotion of learning opportunities for everyone in the local community. It seeks to find ways for learning to lead to achievement, for young people, for adults, and for communities. It does this through partnership working, with partners from the further and higher education sectors, the voluntary sector, the business community and statutory bodies.

School CouncilLearning is something we all do, all the time. There really is no downside; it can be fun, improve your social life, you can discover things about yourself, your home area, learn skills to get a first job, train or retrain for a different one, or improve pay and prospects in your existing career. ELLP is equally concerned with the wider issues of community involvement, planning and development, active citizenship, inclusion and youth issues.

East Lothian Learning Partnership has brought together providers of education and learning opportunities to set out the following partnership vision for the future of learning in East Lothian –

"Our vision is of an East Lothian where, through learning together, everyone can fulfil their potential, enrich their personal lives and participate in and benefit from a healthy community and economy."

All partners will work together to ensure that this vision becomes a reality, developing genuine partnership working at local and authority wide level which will result in dynamic new provision and promotion of learning throughout East Lothian. Through this process, the people of East Lothian will be will be supported, encouraged and enabled to participate in learning opportunities.
