10Eighty are proud to announce a partnership with Ethical Angel, a technology solution transforming the needs of good causes into experiential learning opportunities.
Ethical Angel, established in 2018 by Alexander Fahie, provides good causes with an easy and free way to outsource strategic projects, enabling charities, social enterprises, NGOs and impactful start-ups to concentrate on what really matters. Their technology is used by dozens of businesses for many applications, from developing people skills in managers to ensuring graduates can grow and develop in their roles. They work with good causes in over 52 countries saving them time, effort and money which can be re-allocated to their beneficiaries.
How 10Eighty are using Ethical Angel
Our partnership will provide an experiential route for our clients to embed learning from their coaching and leadership programmes. The Ethical Angel platform enables learners identify skills they want to develop, and then practise those skills within good causes. Experiential learning which embeds critical workplace behaviours, and is designed to have a positive impact on the world, as each learning experience supports a charity, social enterprise or NGO.
10Eighty chief executive, Michael Moran, says: “The most frequent criticism levelled at learning and development initiatives is that they fail to embed the learning in the business. Our partnership with Ethical Angel enables learners to take what they have learned and apply it in an environment that is unfamiliar but worthwhile. Ethical Angel arranges for the learner to work with a good cause, making a real difference while developing their learning agility. Today, more than at any other time, learning agility, being able to respond rapidly to fast-changing business conditions, is a key skill.”
Ethical Angel CEO, Alexander Fahie, says: “Targeted experiential learning is often the missing piece of the puzzle in learning and development programmes, and 10Eighty’s passion to embed it in their learning programmes through Ethical Angel will be a huge benefit for all of the learners that they support.” Ethical Angel believe the partnership with 10Eighty will allow learners to take their development to the next level, by giving them the real-life experiences they need to understand how to apply knowledge they have gained from training to improve performance.
How the platform works
Ethical Angel allows users to source engaging learning projects that don’t just change behaviour, they change the world. They provide fully scoped-out real-life projects with measurable results; and quantitative and qualitative feedback from each project is captured and shared to evidence learning and development.
10Eighty Business Manager, Shannon Rowlands, used the platform “I performed a website review for a charity supporting vulnerable children. I looked specifically at areas such as access to information about workshops and courses, how users shop and, more importantly, how to donate. I reviewed the look, feel and design of the website, providing options for improvements and general usability feedback. My Ethical Angel project supported a worthy cause, a relatively new charity, while developing my skills and knowledge and applying them to a real work situation.”
