As the newly elected vice-chair of the CWBLG I am delighted the group is part of CDN. The group represents and supports the College Sector who provide high quality work-based learning programmes along with sharing community of practice which fits well with the aims of CDN and the other networks.

The CWBLG has been established for many years and has a collective expertise in all aspects of work based learning.  We are delighted to have been invited to join CDN and look forward to becoming better aligned to other groups which sit within their extensive network.
