Learning and development professionals are being asked to donate elearning resources to organisations in the charity and not-for-profit sectors as a part of the Global Giveback UK initiative.
The initiative has been developed in the UK by the Charity Learning Consortium. The consortium says a ‘curriculum of need’ is currently being established which will help match resources to third sector requirements.
All content will be available in one repository to make it as accessible as possible. Resources will also be accessible to third sector staff directly through social media wherever possible, enabling those working in the sector to access content ‘anytime, anyplace, anywhere’.
The CLC says this kind of accessibility is crucial for third sector organisations – those working in care charities, for example, may not have a desk, whilst those working in charity shops may have no access to the internet whilst working.
Giveback successes will be celebrated with a special recognition award for the best Global Giveback UK project 2013 at the Charity Learning Awards in the autumn.
