BRAC achieves large scale and rapid change by working with individuals, families, communities and institution to overcome poverty. Our approach is comprehensive – with financial services, capacity building and livelihood development as well as health, education and social justice – enabling people to realize their potential. Through continuous innovation to introduce more cost effective solutions and adapting them for greater effectiveness, we scale up for immediate and lasting change. BRAC strongly believes that training is a key element of the development approach which focuses on human capacity and their participation. For that very reason, BRAC Training Program commenced since 1973 which was subsequently renamed as BRAC Training Division (BTD) in 1993. Over time, BTD feels the need for further change in its nomenclature and has been appeared as BRAC Learning Division since August 2011. The strong view of this virtual paradigm shift is its existing learning principles, activities and practices which are perfectly in line with a learning division. BLD also believes like Peter Senge that it is such a division where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free and where people are continually learning how to learn together. This way, BLD emerged and is responsible for augmenting the capacity and professionalism of BRAC staff and programme participants through a wide range of training and learning, and also contributing to other organizations as GOs and NGOs over the country and abroad who are working in development arena.
