Charities, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises are increasingly embracing digital learning solutions and e-learning development to train their employees and volunteers to drive positive change
Scrutiny of the charity sector has increased in recent years and it is essential to demonstrate organisation-wide compliance with ethical expectations and regulatory requirements, particularly with regard to fundraising activity, data management and safeguarding.
Training requirements for not-for-profit organisations pose challenges because funding pressures in the sector are acute. While funding is squeezed, economic inequalities are increasing demand for welfare services, advocacy and campaign work. Charities need effective and affordable solutions for training and development of their workforce - including large teams of diverse volunteers - to ensure that they can use limited resources in the most socially beneficial way and consistently deliver high-quality services.
Despite its challenges, the digital age has also offered charities a unique opportunity to have a positive social impact, as online learning and mobile-friendly digital design can be used to provide guidance, education, advice and advocacy tools to a wide audience.
