Learning Centres are focused on research, development, quality learning as well as recognition and certification.
We have invested in four Learning Centres which are managed by partners or a consortium of partners. We are a founding partner and financial sponsor in each. Each Centre has a particular focus, which has been identified through research undertaken for the Academy. Learning Centres are focused on research, development, quality learning as well as recognition and certification. The intention is that the output from these Centres will inform the Academy and the humanitarian sector on best practice, identify gaps in learning and identify new content.
