Following research into the pay levels between international and national staff in NGOs, Dr. Ishbel McWha-Hermann will present the project findings and give participants a chance to ask the project team questions about the research. We are hoping that this discussion will stimulate further debate within NGOs and provide some practical alternatives to the dual pay system. The report can be found here.

The purpose of this workshop is to build the capacity of organisation staff and consultants to facilitate training on the Core Humanitarian Standard. The workshop will be delivered in English.

This course is for people who train or manage learning within their organisation or more widely in the sector.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Differentiate accurately between the humanitarian principles of humanity, impartiality, independence, and neutrality, and explain their importance.
• List the nine commitments of the Core Humanitarian Standard and explain how each contributes to the delivery of a quality humanitarian response.
• Give examples of good practice drawn from their own experience, from other participants and more widely from the sector.
• Act as advocates and peer leaders on the importance of quality, accountability and good people management in humanitarian action.
• Facilitate introductory training on the Core Humanitarian Standard within and/or beyond their own organisations.
