The British Learning Association (BLA) is piloting two regional offices in the South East and South West.
The aim is to provide more networking opportunities for members at a local level and help the BLA get more involved in issues and developments at a regional level.
New regional co-ordinators in the pilot sites will organise networking meetings, identify new learning initiatives in the area and form links with appropriate regional bodies.
Jack Wills, regional co-ordinator for the South West and managing director of TADS Media, said: "Not only will this help to raise the profile of the Association in the regions, it will also bring the BLA closer to its members. This is an exiting initiative that can only be good news for everyone involved!”
The BLA aims to roll out the pilot to other regions over the next year.
