Third Sector eLearning

Our third sector elearning solutions enable cost-effective training for charities and voluntary organisations – who are under constant pressure to do more with less.

Overview of Sector

Industry leaders recommend that voluntary sector staff should get 40 hours of professional development every year1; delivering on this can be a huge challenge with strapped budgets. Online learning is a cost-effective way of meeting your charity or voluntary organisation’s training needs.

Face-to-face training is an expensive and time-consuming business. Materials and facilities for classroom training are costly. Taking staff out of the office wastes time and it’s difficult to keep training up to date when things change. eLearning is available anytime, anywhere.

We create courses designed to fit into your learners’ day-to-day jobs, and that will work on whatever devices they use. Updated materials can be rolled out at the click of a button to your entire workforce.

Effective training also has a positive impact on staff engagement and retention, which further reduces costs for your organisation.

The Internet Society - International eLearning Project

ISOC Wireless for Communities

Non-profit organisation The Internet Society (ISOC) partnered with the International Electronics Standards Organisation (IEEE), in a humanitarian project providing elearning to help rural communities in Africa and India set-up and operate wireless internet.

Our instructional designers used open source material to create easy to use elearning for local trainers.

The project was such a success that ISOC commissioned us to create further versions of the elearning in French, Spanish and Russian.

1st4Sport - Raising Awareness Project

Raising Mental Health Awareness

1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem in any given week. While figures like these highlight how common it is for people to experience mental health problems, there are still many misconceptions about mental health, and some stigma around discussing mental health openly.
