The Team London Skill-UP programme matches skilled business volunteers with staff from small charities to help them develop their skills and become more efficient in their roles.
Skills gaps can be a problem for London's small charities - which make up 96 per cent of the sector. Staff often work in small teams multitasking different areas of expertise, such as finance, HR and communications. But it is not possible to be an expert in all these roles; charities need external support, advice and training to support their staff. That’s where Skill-UP helps.
Team London Skill-UP works in partnership with specialist businesses whose staff volunteer their time to develop and deliver training courses to small charities. This allows the organisations to be as effective and efficient as possible and have an even greater impact on London’s communities.
The programme is unique as it offers high-quality free training combined with post-training support to ensure that the learning is integrated into the daily running of the organisation. This support will be mentoring or online support.
