Working within a global L&D network has both opportunities and challenges. But how do they differ within the social sector? How do global organizations deliver learning in rural areas with poor internet connections? And what impact has COVID-19 had on their approach?

This week on The Good Practice Podcast, Nicola Boyle and Ross Garner are joined by Claire Wilson, Head of Global Learning Lab at the Social Enterprise Academy. She shares her experiences of working in global L&D in the social sector.

We discuss:

  • how the Social Enterprise Academy deliver L&D globally
  • the challenges of delivering learning in developing countries
  • the impact of COVID-19 on global L&D in the social sector.
