ABOUT THE COURSE

Context is designed to help you, or your staff, to develop core humanitarian competencies and leadership skills in order to improve the quality of emergency response. Context focuses specifically on strengthening the national capacity to respond.  

In 2015-17, RedR UK will be implementing the Context Programme in the Middle East and East Africa. Context is based on the Core Humanitarian Competencies Framework, and provides high-quality participative capacity building that is contextually relevant and delivered by highly skilled local RedR facilitators. Besides the Management and Leadership Programme described here, we also offer a 6 month course on the development of Core Humanitarian Skills.

MANAGEMENT & LEADERSHIP SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

This is a nine-month inter-agency programme providing continued professional development to national agency middle/senior management staff, in their current roles. The programme examines key aspects of management and leadership in emergency situations. Key topics include implementing effective humanitarian response, inter-agency collaboration, communication skills, leadership skills, as well as professional development.

LEARNING METHODS

The format of both learning programmes encourages participants to set targets and reflect on their progress, whilst “on the job,” as part of a coherent and high-quality staff development programme. Learning methods include:
  
•Two face-to-face workshops (each four days)
•Coaching (in collaboration with CHS Alliance)
•Practical course work
•Learning on the job
•Self- directed learning
•Group work

Staff members will be actively supported by their agency and line manager throughout the programme and will take ownership of their learning process. The programme offers a unique opportunity to share best practice and establish a common, high quality learning experience for humanitarian staff in different parts of the world.

ORGANISATIONAL AND STAFF BENEFIT

Our participants in Jordan, Ethiopia and Kenya described the Context programme as "transformational". Through their action plans and learning projects, participants are making real and concrete changes within their organisations.
