Introduction

Successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals require a transformational change, a new way of working and a mindset change. To make these happen, we need new skills, values and attitudes. This imperative has put the onus on the education system and training providers to design learning activities with relevant learning objectives and learning content with sound pedagogical principles and methodologies that empower learners. The 2030 Agenda makes this explicit by making education a goal by itself - SDG 4. This emphasizes the importance of learning and training as a means to achieve the SDGs.

This self-study online course gives participants the tools and techniques for a systematic approach to training others effectively.
