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.

Who should attend? 

This course is for people who train or manage learning within their organisation or more widely in the sector. Priority will be given to people who have a responsibility for training/learning within their job, and to consultants specialising in training delivery. Participants must have at least a basic knowledge of quality, accountability, people management and the Core Humanitarian Standard before they join this workshop.

Course content: 

The first two days of the course will offer introductory sessions on the Core Humanitarian Standard. The third day will touch on training methodologies, and give time for participants to prepare for the fourth day, when participants will deliver sessions that they have developed themselves.

Pre-workshop assignments and background reading: 

Participants are asked to re-read the Core Humanitarian Standard in preparation for the workshop. We also recommend that they complete the introductory e-learning module on the Core Humanitarian Standard.

Learning outcomes: 

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.

Course fees: 

The course fee includes facilitation, course materials, lunches and refreshments during the days of the course, and a course completion certificate. The course fee does NOT include the cost of overnight accommodation, breakfast, evening meals, or travel to and from the training venue.
