The Norwegian Fundraising Association is now offering its members online training to ensure they are up to date with the Association’s best practice and ethical guidelines for fundraising.
The course was designed to help members comply with its code of conduct for the country’s third sector, which is self-regulated. The Association’s over-riding aim is for members to maintain the highest standards of practice in fundraising and for donors to have a positive and secure experience.
Rikke Solberg, Head of Communications at the Association, said:
“The code of conduct is essential in all fundraising. That is why it was chosen to be our first online course.”
However, the Association intends to offer more online learning opportunities in the future.
Members of the Norwegian Fundraising Association can buy a one-year license, providing their organisation with unlimited access to the course, and enabling them to offer it to multiple members of staff.
Developed by Lin Education and taking the form of a map, the course guides users along a learning path, on which there are different tasks to complete. These include reading chapters from the code of conduct and examples of best practice, and completing writing exercises and quizzes to ensure that they have understood the content.
