Twelve small charities to receive free online skills training
NCVO and JustGiving are running a bursary scheme allowing twelve small charities to access over 50 courses that were created to make them more effective in how they are being run.
NCVO and JustGiving are running a bursary scheme that will offer 12 small charities access to free online skills training for one year.
The charities will receive a free year-long subscription to Studyzone, part of the NCVO-run KnowHowNonProfit online training platform for the voluntary sector.
The bursary scheme was launched to celebrate Small Charity week, which is taking place this week.
The first six bursaries, usually costing £99 each, will be awarded in July, whilst the remaining six will be awarded later in the year.
The bursaries will allow the charities to access over 50 courses that were created to make them more effective in how they are being run. This includes courses such as risk assessment, campaigning and writing bids for funding.
Charities that want to qualify for the bursary must be based in England and must be registered with the Charity Commission. They must also have less than 10 paid members of staff.
“We know it can be hard for small organisations to access high quality training, which is why NCVO provides Studyzone. As an online resource it allows people to study at their own pace, wherever they are,” said Megan Griffith Gray, head of digital and communications at NCVO.
