  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 and the accompanying Guidance Notes & Indicators in preparation for the workshop. We also recommend that they complete the 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.

Why do certain changes take place quickly, and in some instances without friction, while other issues stall? Is there a secret to successful change or just a series of traps to avoid? 

On 1st October, the CHS Alliance, in partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), will present the 2018 edition of the Humanitarian Accountability Report. The publication looks at the issue of change under the light of mainstream change theories, dissecting six topics to figure out what works (or doesn’t) and why, from cash transfer programming to localization and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA).

The presentation of the Humanitarian Accountability Report will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session, after which you are all invited to a cocktail dinner.

MODERATOR

Bonaventure Sokpoh, Head of Policy, Advocacy and Learning, CHS Alliance

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Yves Daccord, Director-General, ICRC

Panellists include representatives from ALNAP, KPMG, Oxfam and a humanitarian donor.

Ms. Amina Labarakwe, Chairlady of the Tangulbei Women’s Network –  Churo  Chapter, Churo Division, Baringo County in Kenya will join the panel via a recorded video. 


 

The event will be web streamed for those who cannot be present in Geneva.
