Learnterra is a learning platform for public and charity sectors across the world, developed and designed by people who are working in these sectors at different levels and fields – manifestations of our working and learning experience.

Our e-learning courses are catered for low internet bandwidth countries and we are in the process of refreshing them.

Our_coursesYOUR LEARNING PATHWAY

We structured our courses after having walked through the process of doing the work ourselves. We combined academic and practitioners’ perspectives on how things work, why things fail and how they can be improved. We selected the contents for our courses according to common themes faced by many NGOs and public sector organisations. As much as possible, we endeavoured to structure these courses in a methodical way.

ORGANISATIONAL LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

How do we know that our organisations are delivering value? How do we find out if the work we do is value work or ‘waste’? How do we develop leaders, managers and staff to recognise value work and waste to start improving the way we work? No organisational transformation can be successful without a full understanding of how we, collectively, do our work.  How our relationships impact each other and how they ultimately define and shape the ways in which we deliver services to customers. Results and outcomes do not come from thin air. They are driven by strong outputs, high value activities with grounded decision making.

This learning pathway consists of 12 modules explaining on how to implement a continuous development framework which is largely based on the works of  J. Seddon, J. Liker et al, T. Ohno, P. Senge, G. Taguchi.

ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE IN HUMANITARIAN SECTOR

Working in a humanitarian sector has become increasingly challenging with higher risks than ever. While working, it is important to keep safe. This pathway consists of 10 modules. The contents are developed by Osman Consulting UK, a well respected disaster management firm with more than 25 years working on the the front line as well as in training in Asia, Africa, Middle East and Eastern Europe.

WORKING WITH MEN, WOMEN AND BEYOND

Working with men, women and beyond focuses on the whole systems of protection and development. The first two modules start with women in development which later on transitioned into gender and development.  Increasingly, dealing with pluralism and complex intersections, a singular focus which essentialising humans’ identities risks reductionist and simplistic perspectives.

STRENGTHENING CHILD PROTECTION SYSTEMS THROUGH RESILIENCE AGENDA

Children do not live in alone, so why should protecting them done in isolation. Safeguarding children’s interests requires the whole safeguarding systems to work from building their resilience (ability to bounce back from adversities and rise above them) and those who become the first layer of protection. Actions which disregard the whole aspect of safeguarding systems risk of making the safeguarding net more porous albeit inadvertently apart from passing the problems from one level to another.

We structured our courses after having walked through the process of doing the work. We combined both an academic and practitioner’s perspectives on how things work, why things fail and how they can be improved. We selected the content for our courses according to common problems faced by NGOs and the public sector, structured them in a methodical way and presented them with as much clarity as possible.
