  • Promoting connect and outreach: Learning aids for continuum after the Formal Training is over and a space for Social Learning and collaboration

Our Delivery Strategies for ESG Training

To build the practice further, we propose that the delivery strategy leverages the following:

  • Self-paced learning using immersive learning strategies including Personalized Learning Pathways
  • Blended Learning that allows intervention from experts on key topics/concepts that need a deeper explanation or clarification
  • Optimal blend of Formal and Informal Learning to drive continuous learning and development, especially Social Learning to allow the exchange of different points of view and develop processes for collective actions and reflection over time
