Over the past nine months, the PW training team has been collaborating with partners in our network to meet short-term training needs and prepare a long-term strategy informed by the pandemic and post-pandemic realities. The pandemic has affected training logistics in each country differently.
As a result, we are partnering with each regional team to adapt a training strategy to their unique contexts. For many countries, tools and guides enabling online training will be extremely valuable. In others, partnerships that enable safe in-person training will be most beneficial and relevant. While we have learned a lot this year regarding how to better support our training network, we intend to continue listening and learning while offering timely support.
What We've Been Working On:
- Updated the Global and Country Training Partner models, which will enable PW to clearly and efficiently share training resources with like-minded institutions.
- A Values-Based Microenterprise Curriculum has been finalized and has moved on to the translation phase.
- A PW “Learning Management System" (PW LMS), which will enable online trainings and improved sharing of resources and best practices
A regional training task force to lead the design and implementation of localized strategies
- A variety of regional webinars to encourage, equip, and train entrepreneurs in the midst of Covid-19
