The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) is launching a series of online learning programmes for members as well as the global credit union community.
The organisation, which represents credit unions from across the world, is collaborating on the project with eLeadership AcademyTM, which has been running various programmes for credit unions since 2014. The courses are designed for leadership development at all levels, from emerging leaders to CEOs.
“We are pleased to expand our learning opportunities to include online programs, contributing to the professional development of our members and adding to the face-to-face educational programs offered thus far,” said Paul Treinen, WOCCU COO.
The partnership will enable participants to register for two online eight-week programmes eLEAD and eCOACH. These consist of blended learning through online reading, videos, self-assessments, webinars, discussion forums and assignments. The courses are available to participants at any time and anywhere and aim to help them developed concrete action plans to support their continued growth.
Sandra McDowell, eLeadership AcademyTM founder/faculty, added: “We are thrilled to partner with WOCCU to offer eLeadership AcademyTM programs worldwide as a cost-effective and convenient way to grow leadership and coaching effectiveness within the credit union system.
“The online nature of our programs results in much lower cost per person than traditional in-house or on-site facilitated programs and has proven valuable for participants”.
