The Inspiring Learning for All framework is back!

The Inspiring Learning for All framework helps the arts and culture sector to capture and evidence their impact by identifying generic learning and social outcomes for individuals and communities

More broadly, it provides a performance improvement framework, promotes best practice, and helps organisations to assess and evidence the impact of their activities. 

The Inspiring Learning for All framework was originally launched by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). It was initially created as a self-help tool to enable museums, libraries and archives to develop their learning offer.

In 2014, Arts Council England sponsored a refresh of the framework, with an emphasis on:

  • Retaining and refreshing the many valued and well used aspects of the Framework
  • Broadening its potential user-base to incorporate the wider arts and cultural community
  • Removing potentially misleading links to now redundant government policies
  • Identifying area of alignment with the current arts and cultural landscape – including the Arts Council’s 10-year strategic framework and priorities.

The framework and all ILFA resources are here:
