Learning for Purpose Report PDF Print E-mail

Learning for Purpose: a Milestone for the Australian NFP Sector and its Workforce

Learning for Purpose

The Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) is proud to announce the launch of a new report: Learning for Purpose: Researching the Social Return on Education and Training in the Australian Not-for-Profit Sector.

The report has been prepared by the Centre for Social Impact at The University of Western Australia (UWA) and summarises what has been a three-year collaborative research effort with the Origin Foundation and ASF.

It contains ground-breaking research on the social return on education and training in the Australian Not-for-Profit sector, and demonstrates that the success and sustainability of the Australian NFP sector hinges substantially on its people. It presents seven key findings which show that developing NFP employees and volunteers has multiple positive effects for the individuals, the organisations, and the purposes they serve. Learning for Purpose also reveals that training can improve an employee’s role clarity, job knowledge, and self-confidence, and lead to better decisions and leadership behaviours, reduced costs, more funding, better services and beneficiary well-being.

Lead researcher, Dr Ramon Wenzel from UWA said: “For the first time we can demonstrate on the basis of research that professional development really works for the Australian Not-for-Profit sector. It’s not about making NFP employees and volunteers work harder, but smarter.”

Learning for Purpose calls upon funders, the public, government and even NFP leaders and organisations themselves to see professional development as an important investment rather than an overhead.
