Being a Learnlife-branded Learnhub partner
Launch & Annual Services
Through our launch and annual services, partners receive the knowledge transfer of research-based best practices from our Learnlife hubs in order to set up and operate their own Learnlife-branded hub.
Collaborating & Licensing
Learnlife-branded hub partners sign a three-year collaboration agreement and are licensed to use the Learnlife brand in the name of their hub and in all marketing and communication. Learnlife-branded hubs can also go on to become Learning Guide training centres for future Learnhubs.
How to open a Learnlife-branded Learnhub
Here are some elemental things to consider.
What community will your hub be serving?
What types of programmes do you want to offer?
Where will your hub be located?
Your hub will be built according to the needs of your learning community. It can serve younger learners, teenagers, adults, university students, seniors, vocational learners, and so on.
Your hub can offer full-time, part-time, afternoon, weekend and summer programmes, teacher training, co-working spaces, school/company visits, and so on.
You can transform an existing learning space into a Learnlife hub, refurbish a space or create something completely new. The setting is up to you.
Aligned learning spaces
Those who do not want to open a Learnlife-branded hub but instead wish to run an aligned learning space have access to the same services for their existing learning community or upcoming project.
In this case, the Learnlife brand cannot be used. However, aligned learning spaces can choose to become part of our Friends of Learnlife Network.
Our Learn Services allow you to build a personal package for your hub. We have created the mandatory launch service package to support a successful Learnlife-branded hub launch and assure a consistent quality of the Learnlife experience across all hubs.
Launch Service Package
Launch services allow partners to take advantage of Learnlife’s experience in preparing, opening, and operating its own hubs. The guidance and services which Learnlife provides facilitate and accelerate the hub’s launch and learning curve.
