Emerging Practitioner: Build your Humanitarian career  Online course

To be effective, individuals and organisations need to master a new set of core capabilities. This includes agile, design thinking, foundational technical knowledge, and a more nuanced set of leadership skills. However, building capabilities can be hard. Knowledge and behaviours must be aligned with how a role creates value.

We empower organisations to build these capabilities and achieve the impossible. We use a broad range of learning interventions to help individuals and organisations develop foundational knowledge, mindsets, and skills on core social impact and agile topics in order to deliver measurable and sustained results.

Our support is a tactical approach to future proofing current human resources and developing talent pipelines in an increasingly talent scarce environment.
