The CHS Alliance training offer focuses on the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability and on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) as well as Investigating allegations of SEA.

Sign-up to our CoP

Since 2020, the PSEA/Investigation for managers has been converted to be offered remotely. We envision that this workshop will mostly stay as a remote version to enable greater accessibility worldwide. Our SEA Investigation training workshop and follow up workshops have been converted as remote events too. While in semester 1 of 2021, we will continue to offer remote events only, we might revert to a mixed face-to-face / remote offer as soon as travel possibilities ease.

Our CHS training workshop is under revision and we hope to be able to offer a pilot event in semester 1 of 2021. Our Complaint and response mechanism workshop is also under revision. Both workshops will be delivered remotely. We will keep you informed on this page as well as through our monthly newsletter.

On this page, you will also find training material and information on the approved trainers’ scheme.

Our training courses are interactive and participatory, and focus on the practical application of the topics covered. Various learning methods are used to cater to different learning styles of participants. Courses usually include presentations, discussions, case studies, practical activities, role plays and other exercises promotion a lively and positive learning environment.

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 further reading according to participants’ interests and needs.


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

The CHS Alliance’s training team is available to follow up remotely with information and 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.
