Top tips we gleaned from the award-winning compliance programme at Tesco, winner of an elearning Age award in 2014. More than 60 delegates will attend this regional forum to share experiences from existing efforts to improve freight transport efficiency and prioritize measures for national action plans.
However, these offices often only consist of a small number of staff, whose qualifications and skills may not necessarily cover all of the development sectors. Given that there is growing development pressure in Cambodian Provinces, and that the Department of EIA in Phnom Penh is tasked with extensive environmental review work, it makes sense to boost the capacity of provincial EIA officers. Understand current state-of-the-art international approaches to EIA implementation and follow-up. Understand the linkage between a proponent terms of reference - the proponent’s impact assessment documents - and EMPs. The training is funded by the GMS Core Environment Program and is being organized with the support of Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment. Seek agreement with provincial stakeholders on their role in engaging in NESAP formulation and implementation.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) – also called safeguards - is an important approach to better design projects to minimize negative, and optimize positive, impacts. The Core Environment Program is assisting GMS countries to develop and improve their country safeguard systems. In late 2014, the GMS Core Environment Program (CEP) initiated support to the Ministry of Environment (MoE) to identify issues and find solutions to improve the country’s safeguards system. In early 2015, CEP completed a review of current EIA practice in Cambodia and put together an action plan proposing 25 priority initiatives, many of which will require donor support. Among the main issues identified were a lack of technical and institutional capacity, weaknesses in the legal framework, and that EIAs were often not following the legal requirements. The priority initiatives identified in the action plan covered capacity building programs, awareness raising, pilot strategic environmental assessment studies (for energy and mining), and improvements to EIA monitoring. A series of new Prakas’ (ministerial decisions) were also proposed based on a draft EIA law that is expected to be enacted when the country adopts its Environment Code, which is currently being developed. The MoE requested CEP follow-up support on two of the action plan’s capacity building initiatives both of which target weaknesses in the application of EIA in provinces. In November 2015, CEP delivered trainings in Siem Reap and Sihanoukville for around 60 EIA officials from multiple provinces.
On 17-19 May, a 3-day training for provincial EIA officials from throughout the country will be held in Siem Reap. This 1st consultation workshop will bring together government , civil society, and development partners working in the country's southeastern and southwestern provinces to inform them of the NESAP concept, process, and proposed policies and programs and seek their collaboration in its implementation. Through the discussions on Chapters 3 and 4, the NESAP team will aim to gain Task Force members' agreement on proposed policies, financing options, and priority programs and projects for implementing the NESAP.

GMS countries recognize the need to shift toward planning systems that optimize natural resource allocation for better long-term outcomes.
Since its 2006 beginning, the Core Environment Program has taken a lead role in supporting government efforts to improve strategic planning. Integrate economic valuations of natural capital in development plans and investments decisions. Building the awareness of decision-makers about the importance of integrating economic valuations of natural capital into planning and decision-making processes. Improving regulatory frameworks and institutional arrangements for cross-sector (tourism, energy, transport etc.) coordination and dialogue, SEA, and multistakeholder participation. Strengthening the technical capacity of government staff to apply best practice and analytical tools for planning through action-learning and knowledge exchange. Promoting the application of SEA and related tools to support sector- and area-based planning. For more information about GMS-EOC activities, please complete the form below and one of our team will be happy to get back to you. Facilitated by the Asian Development Bank as an integral part of the GMS Economic Cooperation Program, CEP seeks to create a region where economic growth and environmental protection are approached in parallel, and in a way that benefits all who live there.
The Presidential Provision will outline the structure of the scheme, including target pollutants and industries as well as the level of fees. The scheme will be a cornerstone of the Government’s response to address growing concerns over industrial pollution, which has yet to be systematically monitored or managed. Other responses include the recent application of the Industrial Pollution Projection System, which analyzed the scale and type of industrial pollution emissions in the country.
In addition, latest analytical analysis inputs for the NESAP were presented: (i) an assessment of the quantitative and qualitative economic and social benefits in transiting toward a more environmentally sustainable growth path, and ii) identifying a the steps and policy options for moving from sustainable growth targets to specific implementation actions and projects. Recommendations on delivering favorable legal, institutional and technical capacity conditions for PES will inform Cambodia’s National Environment Strategy and Action Plan (NESAP), and will become the basis for scaling up PES in the country. The afternoon session began with an overview of the government’s vision for adopting PES as a sustainable financing arrangement for natural resource conservation in Cambodia.
Help at hand for countries desperately seeking climate cashSeveral big international funds, including the U.N. In exploring how the organisation needed to change, innovate and grow, it was clear that the bank faced the need to change its mindset, ethical decision-making and culture. In this case study, we explore how they did it and what we can learn from them.ERR (Engineering Real Results) are market leaders in vocational education, training over 6,000 students each year in a variety of trade skills. We have been keeping track of performance and staff engagement throughout the project and have been delighted with the results. Today, over 40,000 aid workers from 190 countries have accessed the DisasterReady.org learning portal to enhance their preparedness for whatever assignment comes next. Quality improvement is now becoming part of the training and on-going assessment for healthcare professionals.
That is the challenge for the NHS Leadership Academy and its Head of Professional Development, Chris Lake. Faced with rapid growth on three continents, Worldmark needed to improve individual performance and identify future leaders.
But the very system it had in place to deliver such excellence for customer enquiries was leading to delays, falling efficiency and frustrated customers and staff. We can help you compare the outputs of your modernised learning strategy with your peers but perhaps more importantly the benchmark helps you compare your tactics for achieving those outcomes against the top performers.The Towards Maturity Index is the lead indicator at the heart of the Towards Maturity Benchmark Process. In recent years, trust in the conduct of the major UK public service broadcasters has been eroded by some well-publicised lapses.
It provides new recruits with technical training needed for an engineering career across multiple disciplines including maritime, mechanical, aeronautical communication and information systems. It also appears that there has not been much in the way of donor support for capacity building at the Provincial Environment Office level. This 2nd consultation workshop will bring together government officials from the country's northeastern and northwestern provinces to inform them of the NESAP concept, process, and proposed policies and programs and seek their collaboration in its implementation. Many investment projects in the region have unintended, but often avoidable, negative impacts on people and the environment. Some countries, such as PRC and Thailand, have well advanced safeguards systems and capacity.


The objective is to strengthen the capacity of GMS countries to self-manage the environmental and social risks of development projects. Cambodia’s provincial authorities are responsible for overseeing the EIA process for investment projects up to USD 2 million in value, yet EIA officials widely lack the qualifications and training to fulfill this role effectively. This training aims to strengthen technical capacity for monitoring the compliance of projects as they implement their environmental management plans.
Once agreed,  project identification notes (PINs) can be prepared, which are a key output of the NESAP process. In no event shall the ADB be liable to the recipient or any other party for damages of any type, including but not limited to incidental, consequential or exemplary damages arising out of the use or inability to use these materials.
In particular, CEP has introduced Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) and piloted many SEA activities, helping mainstream the approach as a valuable planning tool.
Proponents also hope it will generate enough revenue to help develop a national pollution monitoring system as well as mitigate or offset some of the environmental damage from pollution. The guidelines will synthesize the shared knowledge and experience of the Roundtable partners in developing frameworks for, and implementing, VAAs in the Greater Mekong Subregion over the past decade, including project experience using watersheds as an organizing principle for VAA. While December’s Paris Agreement gave hope that countries could commit toreducing dangerous greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we also witnessed the hottest year in recorded history and a resurgentEl Nino cycle that wreaked havoc on many ecosystems. While December’s Paris Agreement gave hope that countries could commit to reducing dangerous greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we also witnessed the hottest year in recorded history and a resurgent El Nino cycle that wreaked havoc on many ecosystems. Through group exercises; participants identified legal, institutional, and technical capacity conditions for scaling PES up. They are known for providing high quality training, leading to nationally recognised qualifications.
This means that increasingly doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals worldwide will be required to engage with activities and projects that improve healthcare quality and safety which in turn make a real difference to patients.
This included office-based staff as well as hospital-based functions encompassing cleaners, caterers, porters, maintenance, engineers and surveyors. An urgent solution was needed.The existing knowledge portal called Evolution, introduced in 2012, was designed to provide answers in real time, but it was proving difficult to use and had a limited search function. Trust is critical for Channel 4, because its relationship with viewers directly affects advertising sales revenues. The team are also embracing how they can maximise the use of technology and new T&D approaches to facilitate learning in a challenging context. Their services help the abused, the most vulnerable, the forgotten and the neglected children across the UK. Recognizing differences in the maturity of country EIA systems, CEP’s safeguards support responds to specific country needs, which may include improving EIA regulatory frameworks, training EIA practitioners, promoting participatory assessment processes, and securing funding for EIA mainstreaming. The same training program will be held in early July 2016 in Ratanakiri for remaining provinces. They do not necessarily reflect the views and policies of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) or its Board of Directors or the governments they represent. Workers also have to evidence their understanding of how information security is managed within their job roles, to meet Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) requirements. However, there are massive gaps and inconsistencies in standards, training, activity levels and outcomes. Hesketh’s role included setting up training, management development, commercial training and appraisals across this new organisation.However, with 3,200 staff from 161 NHS organisations, where do you start? Worldmark International has grown rapidly from a single site UK organisation into a global one with 12 manufacturing sites and six Design Centres. The information on the site was written by the process team so the language was technical and difficult for front-line staff to relay to customers. Chief Executive David Abraham made awareness and adherence to the Channel 4 Code of Conduct a key priority for all colleagues. Quick tipsIt is higly beneficial for senior members of the training & development dept' to have an active service delivery role.

Professional Outdoor Leadership Development Community.A Employment Opportunities After a WOLF graduate receives the certifications need to for employment. Analysis by the Royal Academy of Engineering suggests Britain will need more than a million new engineers and technicians by 2020 – which will require double the current number of annual engineering graduates and apprentices. Many managers are primarily concerned with efficiencies, providing value and reducing costs.
Indeed, every enquiry into the NHS, both its failings and its successes, highlights some aspect of leadership. As a result, customer service representatives (CSR’s) struggled to understand the technical explanations which led to delays and unresolved customer queries. We have to have the critical capabilities in place to run, transform and drive the company forward. The L&D team also have dedicated research arm, so they can continually scan the horizon for new developments. Their focus has shifted from learning delivery to increased use of learning technologies and embedded performance support. As these natural capital stocks decline, so to do the ecosystem services they provide, such as regulating the climate and providing productive soil and clean water. We have worked out, potential employment opportunities and internships with a number of Expedition Companies, Adventure Education Programs, Adventure Education Schools & Outdoor Recreation Businesses. Without them, any chance of riding on the coat-tails of an infrastructure-led economic revival appears to be wishful thinking.
Clinicians and other healthcare professionals have very little knowledge or expertise in this field which makes quality improvement a complex challenge for healthcare internationally. On top of that, the NHS is under massive pressure to deliver more with less, in ways not previously part of its DNA.
The aim of the academy was clear: to retain staff, improve performance in the workplace, change behaviour linked to company values, identify future leaders and provide a consistent approach to management development.
This resulted in customers getting frustrated, staff having to make unnecessary call-backs and customers receiving inconsistent information. Our employees have to be confident, engaged and knowledgeable whilst delivering the personal touch to our customers as the retail landscape evolves and shopping habits change through the latest digital developments.
Mattel has created regional centres of excellence for organisation development designed to build OD and L&D capability, facilitate connections and drive change across the international business. The specific idea was to marry informal and formal learning with great learning conversations for social learning.
But they needed to get the dynamics right - not just to create a top-down push but a pull to bring about an employee-owned and manager-supported learning culture. It is about relationships between the relief organisations and between these organisations and local operatives.
Frontline staff, such as hospital porters or catering managers, and even patients themselves can often have the biggest impact on quality improvement, but have seldom been influential before this innovative approach from the BMJ.
The Worldmark Academy has now made rapid inroads in to aligning learning to the needs of employees and to the corporate values and key goals.
High levels of calls to the technical support line in 2012 highlighted that a new approach to improving employee’s ongoing product knowledge on the job was desperately needed.
The team are focusing on outcomes and impact, not inputs, and are celebrating success as they go.

The most junior Edward Jenner programme, aimed at those beginning their leadership journey, is free to all users.
They are often working full time, or have family commitments and needed a training programme that was flexible and accessible. They were eager to create the best possible learning experience for their people and it was this enthusiasm that made them great to work with.


The learning solutionTo address this issue, the BMJ developed a flexible and comprehensive programme to support those undertaking healthcare quality improvement projects – often for the first time. This means that IT teams can quickly spot trends and the issues that people need support with.
Traditionally, when supporting the implementation of a new initiative the team would have pushed content to staff but this campaign encouraged everyday learning through a series of micro actions embedded into their work. Project teams are helped to select a project, guided through the process, and encouraged to complete and write up their project. This article was first published in Training Journal.Registered users can download the case study for free by clicking on the link in the related downloads below.
Today, they tend to turn to Google, YouTube or contact their peers for quick answers rather than plough through detailed instruction manuals. We’re looking at not building these massive, great tanker ships, but building little assets, mini-ships, that we can deploy really quickly and that you can put together in a different format. Not only from the leaders, the general managers and the functional leads, but also from the existing generalists.
Learners were taken through real life scenarios provided by staff and asked to make choices, they explored a virtual office to discover the possible dangers and they even had a go at cracking a password! The need for rapid, on the ground innovation is always a potential stress point in the face of organisational hierarchies. Learning, mentoring and opportunities for collaboration and publication are all combined in the BMJ programme, with over 200 projects completed to date in hospitals and healthcare centres up and down the country, raising the quality of patient care and hospital practice. Like other charities we have been impacted by the recession and by a reduction in government spending. Develop a culture that embraces to be adaptable, a willingness to aquire & learn new skills and continually develop, through formal training or attending conferences, will resource your ability to adapt to changes. For the humanitarian organisation, each environment in which they work is about developing people for growth (their own and locals) but at the same time development for redundancy in that situation. The BMJ Quality Improvement Reports journal aims to publish a high volume of quality improvement reports to help healthcare professionals document and share innovations and excellence in care. As of today, 2,500 aspirant leaders, managers and clinicians use this programme to bolster their leadership skills.
In addition the very nature of our core business of conducting research has seen massive changes due to technology. It was critical to shift to new learning principles, principles, and pivot our role as Learning professionals.
This ensured that people knew that it was coming, and explained why the eLearning and the audit were important to CRI. An email campaign, together with banners on the CRI intranet, helped to push these messages.
The DisasterReady.org portal has not only provided an opportunity for speed and scale but also for assurance of quality through the use of accreditation, badges and the other tools available through technology.
An estimate and quote applicationThe resultsResearch with individuals after they completed the programme showed that 98% of the students who achieved their qualification using this method secured employment within 6 weeks of qualifying.
Delivering and supporting learning that is applied consistently at the territory level to busy professionals is essential for our continued success.
Staff commented in feedback that they really liked the way the course felt like it was targeted at them. Increasingly those communities are becoming self-sustaining communities of practice supporting workers in the difficult field conditions of tented communities and relief camps.
They appreciated the pictures of CRI posters and branded mugs in the eLearning scenes and said they could recognise real life scenarios from experience. Volunteers, often from outside the direct humanitarian field, provide material to fill gaps in the provision.

The communication language is currently mostly English but materials are now also becoming available in French and Arabic. TMO Guides & Instructors are leading expeditions in the USA, South America and around the world.Where do you want to go?
A steady campaign before the course was even created, with visual teasers, helped to raise awareness of why the learning was important – not just for the organisation but for all staff and service users.
It is a great place to connect with nature, practice awareness and outdoor skills, be challenged, and discover your own unique leadership style.
Disaster response needs workers who have technical and soft skills, are emotionally well prepared and responsive to situations they find. Again, designed and delivered in partnership with the KPMG-led consortium and the NHS Leadership Academy, the programme has unique elements designed to ensure its powerful development is landed and integrated across the health and care.
It is important that workers have the means to share, seek advice and support one another regardless of their affiliations. In addition to four face-to-face highly experiential residentials and seven challenging learning set meetings, there’s also a state of the art virtual campus.
We will also learn how to read a topo map and learn how to use a compass, how to navigate safely through remote mountain terrain, how to facilitate a group, and understand group dynamics. We will also explore the metaphorical, spiritual, and therapeutic elements of the wilderness experience.Lead with confidence.
Traditionally this has been a challenge, but for example using webinar speakers from a range of client organisations, making the content available to everyone, is breaking down those barriers and encouraging collaboration and sharing. Performance on the programme is peer-assessed by other participants – and it is real: there is an 8% failure rate! High Peaks Introductory to winter camping, Ice climbing, mountaineering A A February 18-29. Chris Lake believes a major element to the success of the programmes lays in the decision to co-create with expert partners, including National Voices.
500 pieces of material used voluntarily by 40,000 workers in over 190 countries suggests that in stressful, deadline driven situations people are finding the portal to provide real help.
The rigorous procurement process prioritised culture and values as well as capability and cost, considered essential for achieving the quality needed to address NHS challenges. The ultimate test is whether the increased leadership skills and the organisational and cultural shifts they are bringing about in relief work are being felt by the ultimate customer – the victim of the disaster.
They are home to a very diverse range of wilderness landscapes, we're thankful to have classrooms from which we can go to snowy peaks and ridges to lakes, rivers, swamps and gorges. The initiative is characterised by simple technology to enable its accessibility, ensuring its reliability when needed. Engagement is an emerging key need, harnessing the technology power of gamification, badges, excellent visuals and the other features it brings.Where next? A programme participant cannot pass the course without delivering measured service improvement – and it has to be written up. A The TMO New England's Adventure Instructor & Guide TrainingA  is in the perfect location to access the unique wilderness areas of New England. For most programmes this is posted globally online (on the publicly available NHSX site) to enable others to learn from it.
