The Network

Trustworthy Network

About Us

The Derbyshire Network is a not-for-profit membership-based organisation, made up of colleges, private training providers and third sector organisations, that all have an interest in work-based learning and employability skills training.

Our activities are split into two main functions:

Both services exist to support training providers raise the standard of work-based learning for the benefit of learners, employers and the wider economy.

All our services are undertaken by a competent and experienced team of staff, whilst the direction and scope of the Network is overseen by a board of directors made up solely of its members.

Mission Statement

The Derbyshire Network exists to support its Members in enhancing the quality of the Learner journey by improving the teaching and learning Members deliver.  This is achieved by promoting Continuous Professional Development, Peer Mentoring and collaborative working.  This added value leads to overall business improvement and performance.

It also represents its Members to a wide range of agencies and statutory bodies whose decisions have direct or indirect impact on Members’ businesses and seeks to influence those decisions in the interests of Members.

Mission Vision

To become the leading learning and skills network in the country.
