English Charities Boosting E-learning

More than 80 charities in England — representing more than 50,000 staff and volunteers — took part in a recent survey, carried out by independent e-learning analysts Towards Maturity in partnership with the Charity Learning Consortium (CLC) of England. Findings revealed that:

>> Learning technologies are helping charities to deliver more for less.

>> They are expecting even more from their investment.

>> There is tremendous enthusiasm to adopt new approaches to learning. Seventy-two percent say their internal learning teams are willing to embrace change.

>> More than 60 percent are looking to increase their allocation of budget in this area.

Martin Baker, managing director of the CLC adds: “We were particularly pleased to see that more than 30 percent of the charities that took part make e-learning available to directors and senior managers,” says Martin Baker, CLC managing director. “When directors are using learning technologies, the overall business impact from e-learning investment is significantly higher. Leading through actions delivers results and we would expect those charities where directors are e-learners to benefit.

“[So] in order for future investment not to disappoint, charities should take the opportunity to learn from each other — as well as from practices in the private and public sector — and this is where I hope the CLC can help.”
