Camden Adult Community Learning
About Camden Adult Community Learning Learn something new for work, for everyday life or just for fun. Our mission We aim to: • Encourage and support adults making their first steps back into learning • Work in partnership with the local colleges and groups. They provide the locations for learning programmes, enabling us to reach those most in need and least likely to engage. Our work is underpinned by inclusive learning and approaches that recognise the diversity of our community. What to expect from Camden Adult Community Learning Classes are informal. Learners are supported by tutors experienced in teaching adults and learning is tailored to meet individual needs and priorities. Before joining a Camden adult community course we will give you: • Advice about which course(s) are right for you • Information about what you will learn on your chosen course(s) • An assessment to find out if the course is right for you, what you already know and what your learning priorities are and if you need extra support. When you are on a course you will get: • An individual learning plan so that you learn what is important to you • Regular feedback from your tutor on how you’re progressing and how you can improve • Information about what you can go on to do after your course is finished

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
As part of our commitment to inclusive learning and approaches that recognise the diversity of our community, we aim to ensure that our tutors are sensitive to the needs of students living with or affected by dementia, and equipped to provide them with any appropriate support.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We do not foresee any significant barriers to implementing our actions.
Arrange for tutors to take part in a Dementia Friends Information Session to become Dementia Friends, and learn about dementia support services in Camden, as part of our December 2017 Staff Development Day.
