Trainings and workshops

ExpandNet facilitators have supported non-governmental organizations, projects and international donors to embed a scaling-up focus throughout their work. Trainings and workshops range from shorter, distance-based collaborations to multi-day, in-person workshops focused on building capacity for scale-up within an institution. ExpandNet facilitators work collaboratively to design and deliver different types of activities depending on the needs identified, the stage of scale up and available funding to undertake the exercise.

Examples of brief support include the provision of scaling-up workshops in which global scale-up learning and guidance tools are presented, discussed and used in illustrative exercises to strengthen participants' ability to plan projects with scaling up in mind, to develop scaling-up strategies and to manage the process of scale up for these specific projects. 

Where country visits are not possible, ExpandNet provides workshops via distance; however the team has found that such collaborations are best used for introducing the framework and approach where further follow-up can be ensured.
