Training is designed to teach key concepts and skills related to a particular topic. It can be delivered in small or large group settings, or online. Training can be a good value for the money involved and provide valuable peer-learning opportunities.
If you assess several organizations in your community and find a common need, training (rather than individual technical assistance) will be the most efficient and effective method to address that specific need. Training opens the door to building communities of practice among organizations, ongoing peer learning, and deeper, more focused technical assistance.
