About the course: The Sphere Project’s Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response have become one of the most widely recognized tools for improving humanitarian action and accountability. The application of its principles, standards, and indicators, however, could be further improved by ensuring that adequate training is available.

The intention of the Sphere Training of Trainers course is to fill this gap by preparing individuals to promote learning on applying the Sphere Handbook. This course will prepare you to train others on applying the Sphere Project's principles, standards, and indicators. It aims to promote effective Sphere training as a means to ensure aid workers are equipped with the skills and knowledge they require to deliver successful humanitarian aid programmes. You will learn from experience, observation, and feedback in highly participatory activities. The skills you gain will be put into practice and developed as you plan and deliver your own short Sphere training sessions. Successful participants will be eligible to be listed in the Sphere trainers’ database after undergoing this training and delivering at least two Sphere workshops.

Enrolment: Interested participants can apply via the application form (See attachment). All applications will be reviewed. Applicants meeting the pre-requisites for the course will be informed and emailed further instructions on how to complete their booking.

Who should attend? The course is aimed at individuals from humanitarian and development agencies with at least two years' experience in disaster response, prevention, mitigation and/or preparedness. Ideal candidates will have specific responsibilities linked to quality and accountability and a good working knowledge of the Sphere Handbook (2011 Edition).

Registration will take place from 8.45 am on Thursday (2.3.2017). Training will begin at 9.00 am and finish at 6.00 pm each day. Participants will be actively encouraged to engage in classroom discussions, group work and a simulation or case study. The trainers will draw on both theoretical and practical knowledge in order to make the experience and learning applicable to the realities of field logistics in a humanitarian disaster. The fees are inclusive of all training resources and refreshments.
