SU’s National Training Co-ordinator, Diane Evans, has made good strides on the realisation of the online training portal with the likelihood that we may have 12 modules up and running in January 2017. This is massively exciting and will service a number of key aspects in our movement, such as new worker orientation, volunteer orientation, staff development and Regional Executive Committee orientation.
Key to this development is making adult learning accessible and relevant and SU has been blessed with the assistance of Neil Butcher and Associates (NBA) in Johannesburg in this regard. While having been a training organisation for many years, SU is moving much of its tried and tested material online, reframing it to include a healthy mix of face-to-face interaction (the ideal) with distance, computer-of-choice self-learning.
While geared at SU’s internal operation initially, this online training platform will be extended as soon as feasible to more external friends and partners. Watch this exciting space in months to come!
