INVESTING IN CHANGE MAKERS
It is impossible to change systems without the knowledge, skills and awareness to think critically and look outside the box. United Edge provides training, coaching and mentoring to invest in and inspire change makers. Over years and across continents, we’ve seen individuals and organisations transform the effectiveness of their work.
Head of UK Hub, Restless Development, UK
"United Edge designed and delivered a design, monitoring and evaluation workshop for a large number of our UK programmes teams... many of the concepts can be seen in their work today which is testament to how impactful the training was."
We are deeply passionate about high quality, relevant and inspiring training. Here are some key features of our training.
We have formal certifications in training, facilitation, learning methodology and curriculum design. Together and as individuals, we have designed and delivered training in more than 20 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. These have been for local civil society organisations, national and international NGOs and UN agencies, university students, young people, and other professionals.
Our facilitation style reflects our values and philosophy. Trainings are active, participatory and engaging and use mixed-media and activities. They challenge assumptions and introduce new ideas with simple and accessible language and tools. This includes using real-world examples and participant stories to increase relevance. We do our best to accommodate any unique needs and aim to provide advance guidance and follow-up material.
We believe that one-off training events, when done well, have potential to create lasting change. However, we aim to also design our programmes to create a network of ongoing peer support that is actively curated. When you come to our trainings, you enter a community of people working for a better world. We make sure you have everything you need to bring your learning into daily life and will be there to help when the workshop is over.
