As a result of changes to theological education, regions were encouraged to form Regional Training Partnerships. These are ecumenical and provide an opportunity for a region to engage in joined-up thinking over training and learning, and to share good practice. This means that Anglicans can talk to Methodists and vice versa. It allows for conversations with the URC and other Churches and to share together, where appropriate, patterns of learning. One example has been the development of Safeguarding when working with vulnerable adults and children.
The LCTP has been an active player in helping to develop and build this pattern of collaborative working.
