short courses for young professionals in the NPO sector

An organisation is only as good as its team members. The best concepts, programmes and ideas will not be of societal impact if the implementing team lacks basic workplace related skills. Many team members in the NPO sector come straight from university, college or even high school with little work experience. While the organisation can equip the team with the specific skills needed for a particular task, e.g. a curriculum, content or methodology, they usually lack time and capacity to equip their team with workplace related skills.

mCon offers short courses for young professionals from the NPO sector to ensure they can unleash their personal potential fully and contribute towards achieving organisational goals and objectives.
