Virtual Instructor Led Training is New Key Method for Training

Posted August 14, 2020


In order to continue providing for the needs of co-ops while keeping up with the situation brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic, the NATCCO Knowledge Resource Center has transformed its training by using the Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT).

We encourage every cooperative to adapt to this innovative learning system made possible by the internet.  Thus, in April and May, we offered free trainings on E-Co-op Clinic, Online Copy-han and the Government’s Social Amelioration Program.

These courses feature a self-paced learning system, which can be completed alone or with a group.

And we continue to develop more online seminars.

Recently, we test ran the Fundamentals of Cooperatives (FC) exclusively for the staff of NATCCO’s Education, Training & Consultancy Group to instill the Co-op Values and Principles. 

The second batch saw 15 cooperatives from Luzon and Mindanao participating. We also reached 6 more cooperatives to participate on the third batch of FC Class last July 29.

On the other hand, we are also offering our High-quality training. Cooperative Leadership and Management Program (Co-op LAMP) to co-op management, staff, leaders and upcoming leaders.

This training allows participants to learn different leadership styles and shapes competencies in operations and dealing with other staff and members.
