Learning for Good is about effective learning for good causes, and business support for social change

Learning for Good works primarily with organisations whose purpose is public service, health care, education, humanitarian work, community development, or campaigning against injustice and poverty. We offer realistic, sensible, jargon-free advice, courses and tools to improve how people work together without spending a fortune.

Are you looking for ways of helping people deal with retrenchment and retaining good people without spending money you haven’t got? Or are you part of a community group working across boundaries to achieve social change?

Learning for Good is directed by Rebecca Nestor, a facilitator and leadership developer with experience of the realities of management and leadership in higher education and the public sector. See Rebecca’s CV. To support you in your aims, Learning for Good can bring:
