Written by: Caritas Nigeria

 

Caritas Nigeria – also referred to as the Catholic Caritas Foundation (CCFN), was established in 2010 as a development agency of the Catholic Church. With a focus on Integral Human development, her interventions are anchored through six key thematic areas namely: Health, Agriculture and Livelihoods, Good governance, Emergency/Humanitarian Response, Anti-human Trafficking; and Institutional
Capacity-strengthening. Her mission is to stimulate and drive development into every segment of the Nigerian society irrespective of race, religion or class.

Caritas Nigeria leverages the existing structure of the Church to achieve her mission. This comprises of hundreds of healthcare facilities and schools, thousands of communities and a huge network of local church partners and institutions in over 56 dioceses of the country. Beyond this, Caritas Nigeria
belongs to an international confederation of about 165 Caritas member nations (Caritas Internationalis) whose common goal is to carry out development interventions across the globe. Through these, she is better-positioned to effectively collaborate and share knowledge at local and international levels.

PM4NGOs is excited to welcome its latest training partner – Pyramid Learning

PM4NGOs is excited to welcome its latest training partner – Pyramid Learning

Partners, Training

Although Pyramid Learning is a new partner, its Co-Founders – Mike Culligan and John Cropper – are old friends of PM4NGOs. In fact, Mike and John wrote the first version of PMD Pro back in 2010 and actually created PM4NGOs itself.

So in many ways, it is not ‘welcome’ but ‘welcome home’.

Mike and John have a simple mission for Pyramid Learning. They want to make quality learning appropriate, accessible and actionable. In other words, they want to help those doing good, do even better”.

Many professional qualifications are no longer valid for life, and holders must demonstrate Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in order to retain their credentials. PMD Pro+ offers a range of activities for just this purpose.

The PMD Pro and Program DPro certifications help you to gain and affirm knowledge of project and program management in the development sector. Becoming certified is a great achievement. But don´t stop there!

PM4NGOs gladly announce Weircapacity as new training partner.

Written by: Weircapacity

Over the years,
we have executed projects in small towns and rural communities across Africa
and found that a significant number of projects fail due to inadequate project
management capacity. The peculiar nature of the development sector and the
areas in which they operate makes it imperative for organizations to build
in-house capacity in project management, with a focus on development projects.

The Importance of Learning Retention Programs

The Importance of Learning Retention Programs

Training

This article was originally published on Humentum by Education Technology Insights.

According to the 2017 State of the Industry report from the Association for Talent Development, in 2016 the average employer spent $1273 per person per year on professional development, representing more than 100 billion dollars. A 2010 McKinsey study estimated that only 25 percent of spending on training led to measured results.  This means roughly the GDP of Delaware worth of training each year leads to no measurable results.

This is simply not acceptable. As learning and development professionals, we have a responsibility to support not just learning but learning transfer and improved results in the workplace.

So, it’s important to ask a few questions:

  • Are our traditional training approaches supporting learning transfer and business results?
  • How do we know whether our efforts are successful (and what to do to improve it)?

These are big questions, but the proposed answer is quite simple: support learning retention.  Granted, this is not a magic bullet but it’s a step in the right direction. And it can be done with a tool we already use every day, making this approach accessible and effective. Continue reading “The Importance of Learning Retention Programs”
