Upcoming training opportunity: Child Protection in Emergencies and the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Emergencies, Nairobi, 19-23 March 2018
After training workshops in London (Jan 2014), Bangkok (Jan 2015), Beirut (March 2015), Dakar (Jan 2016, in French), and Nairobi (March 2017), the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (Alliance) is happy to announce the next global Training of Trainers on Child Protection in Emergencies and the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, which will take place from 19-23 March 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya. Once again, World Vision has kindly agreed to host the workshop.
The series aims to expand the pool of qualified and multilingual trainers who are familiar with the Alliance’s pedagogy, Child Protection in Emergencies training materials and CPMS resources and processes. The workshop will focus on building participants’ face to face and online training and facilitation skills. We will use the CPiE Face to Face training package, with reference to other packages such as Child Protection Rapid Assessment and Case Management. However, please note that this is not a workshop on child protection in emergencies; participants are expected to arrive with extensive prior knowledge and experience.
CPMS-related sessions will be integrated into the programme. Participants will consider how to use and adapt the CPMS using the interagency package “An Introduction to the CPMS for frontline workers”, as well as innovative uses of the CPMS video series and an understanding of the current revision process.
