Bespoke training services

We can tailor-make training packages according to your specific requirements. This service is offered on a cost-recovery basis.

Approach

Our capacity-development courses are interactive and participatory, and focus on the practical application of the topics covered. Various learning methods are used in order to cater to different learning styles of participants. Courses usually include presentations, discussions, case studies, practical activities, role plays and other exercises promoting creativity.

Sharing of materials and handouts

We provide course participants with copies of all the materials and presentations used. We also give a set of references for additional information which will enable them to further their knowledge according to their interests and needs. 

Certificates

We present participants with a course completion certificate at the end of the workshop, provided that they have attended all of the training days of the course and that they completed any required pre-workshop assignments.

Follow up

CHS Alliance's capacity-development team is available to follow up remotely with information or advice for participants at any point without charge after they have completed the course. More formal mentoring or on-site assistance can be provided for a fee.

Evaluation and review

Capacity-building services are reviewed regularly to take into account experience, level of demand, and feedback from agencies and participants in the workshops.
