The Learning and Skills Network is an open network enabling people interested in research and the use of evidence to share ideas and work together. It has no formal structure or funding. People volunteer for tasks and sponsors help support activities. Convenors organise events in the regions and a National Planning Group does the same nationally. The community is bound together by common purposes and values.

A brief history of the network is given here.

Its long and stable life is celebrated in this 2015 article in FE Week

LSRN activities depend on the support of sponsors, which helps keep events free or low cost. Over the years annual events have been supported by Pearson, ETF, LSIS, City & Guilds and NIACE.  Support for Workshops is currently being provided by NFER and Pearson.
