What is GivebackUK?
GivebackUK is a chance for charities to finally get something back – after all that giving!
We want to create free learning materials for anyone within the UK third sector, and so The Charity Learning Consortium is currently working with a whole mix of people to make this happen.
Both freelancers and big name Corporates are willing to give you a helping hand, to help you re-brand or create new content. Our aim is to provide charities with the most engaging and interactive eLearning courses available, so we can help you help others…
Who is this aimed at?
Third sector organsations: We need you…We’re not the experts here – you are! Tell us what you specialise in, share your knowledge and give us your content. We’ll pass it onto our Corporate’s and freelancer’s, who will start to create some amazing learning materials for you.
Corporates/freelancer’s: Would you like to feel that you are ‘giving something back’? Are you struggling to find a project worthy of your CSR? Look no further…. We’ll make it easy for you to contribute to the charitable sector.
Some questions that we’ve encountered so far…
How many resources do you have? The scheme has only recently started, and will grow one resource at a time. Get involved at the start of our journey.
What about charities and not for profits which are not members of The Charity Learning Consortium? The scheme is open to ALL charities, housing associations, not for profits and voluntary organisations – as long as they are working within the third sector. Organisations do not have to be members of The Charity Learning Consortium in order to join or benefit.
Virgin media are helping us to get young people into the workforce.
Virgin Media, Kibble (Scotland’s national specialist provider of services for young people) and CRI (the Crime Reduction Initiatives charity) are coming together to produce learning materials to aid young first time employees into the workplace. The designers will create these courses, while the charities will be the knowledge sharers. The end result? Fantastic eLearning courses that The Charity Learning Consortium will give away for free. Here’s the start of their journey….
There are lots more projects ongoing and in the pipeline – get in touch if you have Learning resources, knowledge and expertise that you could share…
