Monitoring the long-term impact of training

The courses created by the Virtual Learning Centers (VLCs) are designed to be practical and orientated to solve real problems at the local level. Therefore, we expect that our learners will be able to apply what they have learned in their day-to-day activities and share their new skills or knowledge with others.

Most of the courses include an assessment to measure how well our trainees have improved their knowledge and skills by the end of the training course. We also monitor longer-term impacts. Keeping in touch with VLCs users, our VLC coordinators follow up with learners to see if they are able to put the skills they have learned during the course into practice in their daily work. 

VLC courses also aim to improve the way that the organizations who nominate trainees are able to function and, whenever possible, to provide opportunities that improve the professional careers of those participating in our courses.
