FREE Online Training for Nonprofits – Pilot Programme

FREE Online Training for Nonprofits – Pilot Programme


If your organisation has 5 staff members or fewer or is volunteer-led, then this is an opportunity for you to access high-quality and relevant training for FREE. We are recruiting small organisations to take part in an exciting pilot programme for a new online learning platform for nonprofits.

Together with our European partners, The Wheel is developing an e-learning platform especially for small nonprofits. Known as SCOPE, this exciting project is funded by ERASMUS+, the European Commission’s programme for education, training, youth and sport.

The SCOPE training platform will cover the following key topics:

  • Governance

  • Fundraising

  • Financial Management

  • Risk Management

  • Communications

Modules will provide entry level information and training on important matters related to running a nonprofit. One of the goals of SCOPE is to provide a quality training offering to small organisations that may face economic or geographic barriers to accessing traditional face-to-face training. In order to test the platform, we will be running two pilot phases in Ireland. In total we want to involve 50 organizations in the trial, with a view to launching in Autumn 2020.

If you sign up, what is involved?

You will work though all five modules as a part of the package, each one taking approximately 60 minutes to complete. To help us refine and improve the platform, we’ll seek your feedback via online surveys and reviews.

When will the pilot training course take place?

We will be seeking pilot participants between November 2019 and May 2020. We will keep you posted on the dates in the coming weeks. The main thing is that you can commit to piloting the platform and providing feedback on 5 online training modules during a 12 week period between November 2019 and May 2020.
