Welcome to the Nationwide Community Learning Partnership (NCLP)
NCLP is a not-for-profit organisation, providing educational and welfare-based courses for young people, parents and parents to be. Incorporated into the courses are not only the skills essential for parenting, but also for life, with practical units directly applicable to the every-day scenarios learners will face. The courses are mapped to standards, and see learners from all backgrounds leave with accredited qualifications.
Because of its unique charitable status, NCLP is able ensure real value for money for commissioners of parenting programmes.
There are two main courses on offer:
