  • Get the most from capacity building spending

    It's a surprising fact that when funds for capacity building are included in a grant, the grantees face challenges in spending the money well, and often the funds go unspent.

     

    Why? Because most capacity building products are outdated and offer a low return on the time and money invested.

     

    Traditional training solutions have failed to deliver. It's time to for organizations to get the help they need to succeed.

    A solution for grant managers

    With donors, we set up scholarships for current or future grantee organizations to attend bootcamps. Once grantees are enrolled and learning, we engage donors in the process, sharing what's being learned within the donor's foundation and using course content to upskill foundation staff as needed.

    How it works

    Practical, accessible learning helps teams to get aligned and start building toward a better future.

     

    That Spark's bootcamps offer a systematic approach to building the most essential skills within teams, engaging everyone from frontline staff to middle managers to leaders.

     

    Bootcamps help teams focus on their purpose and goals, use resources effectively, and advance toward achieving their missions.

     

    Good capacity building solutions have three parts:

    1. Curriculum design centered on learner needs, focusing on the empowerment and support that matches their current skills level and provides what they need to learn next;
       
    2. Systematic learning that fits real workplace scenarios, instead of just providing an ideal conceptual framework;
       
    3. The combination of learning and practicing with current work projects, instead of practicing with hypothetical cases; giving feedback in time to let users clarify how to practice and how to optimize.
  • Bootcamps have strong engagement from participants and high satisfaction from donors
