Can online training replace face-to-face? Lessons from a global pilot in forty countries
Save the Children is a global organisation running projects around the world from Singapore to Sri Lanka, Sudan, and Sweden. Each country has its own requirements in delivering training such as travel restrictions, working languages, and internet access to name but a few.

This has largely ensured quality training for most of our audience, but logistical and resource limitations meant that not all staff got the training they needed - when they needed it.
