Training your team has never been easier.
While coming together in person for a training course is something we rarely offer right now, we continue to support our partners through customised distance training. These include both online and offline sessions, combining live meetings with self-study.
We create a private online workspace (see an example here) for your team and meet according to a schedule that suits you. We meet with your staff for guided Zoom sessions, answering questions and giving feedback, while between meetings participants work (in teams or individually) through the course materials, tasks and exercises. Follow-up sessions and coaching can also be easily added.
The most frequently requested customised trainings are:
- Reporting Skills & Professional Writing
- Project Planning & Proposal Writing
- Results-Based Management, Monitoring & Evaluation
CONTACT US and let us arrange a call to discuss your needs in more detail.
