A comprehensive portfolio of free online learning

Cause4 Advance

In an exciting new partnership with E-learning specialist Proversity, Cause4 has developed the Advance platform providing a range of e-learning programmes in fundraising and governance development.

Cause4 Advance is a comprehensive portfolio of free online learning and professional development for staff, practitioners and Trustees in the arts and charity sectors. Each course features leading trainers sharing their key insights and experiences across a range of media including video, peer forums and data insight.

 

 

Being online allows us to update the material as legislation and technical information changes. Case studies throughout the training modules help inspire learners with great examples of new business models and quick wins for the long term. We combine each module with micro-learning content for those practitioners that struggle to fit learning into their working day.


 

 

Who is Cause4 Advance for?

Designed to fit around the schedules of busy and time-poor arts and charity practitioners, each module on Cause4 Advance is under two hours, and can be watched on or offline at a time that suits the learner/the user. These ‘learning on the go’ courses are available free of charge via desktop, laptop and smartphone app.

The courses also provide the opportunity to participate in peer forums on the issues that participants are most interested in and to get the latest insight into hot topics in the sector. Participants can measure their own knowledge and learning using our instructor devised assessments.

 

“We are pleased to support the development of these materials, through Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, to provide a comprehensive bank of knowledge and experience that can be easily accessed by leaders of arts organisations and practitioners, both in the UK and internationally. One of our priorities at the Arts Council is to help arts and cultural organisations become more resilient and sustainable as they explore new revenue streams.”

 
Sir Nicholas Serota, Chair of ACE

Communicating with donors at a time of crisis

Fundraising might seem impossible right now but donors need to hear from you on good days and bad, writes Michelle Wright.

Covid-19 has impacted on the international community at a speed and scale that very few people could have foreseen. Whilst well run arts organisations will all have appropriate risk and contingency plans in place, a global pandemic was not something that would have been part of most risk registers.
