Over the last two months we have developed three new courses, to help individuals at home in the UK to deal with some of the difficulties that the COVID-19 pandemic has created.
The three original courses that were run in the UK will be joined by three more. Following, are the details of each course offered by RedR UK.
Culturally Appropriate Hygiene Promotion
Helping people to adapt COVID-19 hygiene methodologies for different cultural and humanitarian contexts.
Managing Stress During a Pandemic
“I want to have a quiet word with the people who are like: “Now’s the time to learn a language or write a novel.” Because really, right now, just getting through the day is good enough.” This was said by Imogen Wall, humanitarian expert and trainer of this Mental Health Awareness course run by RedR UK and was our most attended session.
This course smashes taboos and stereotypes about mental health, helps participants to recognise when someone is crying out for help and teaches you how to phrase and word your efforts to ensure maximum results and effectiveness for all.
The spread of misinformation can kill. This course is designed to take each participant through why misinformation, how to recognise fake news and decipher it for yourself and those around you.
Risk Communication and Community Engagement During COVID-19
This course teaches you how COVID-19 is impacting people of different gender, age and abilities across the country and gives you a toolkit to work with.
You will learn: how to identify and describe key elements of community engagement and risk communications and why they matter; how to design ways to apply these key elements in practice in a MENA context; how to adapt your current community engagement programmes for a COVID-19 World; which specialist organisations provide technical services to support RCCE work.
Gender and Inclusion in a COVID-19 Response
This training provides practical actions that can be adapted to varying MENA contexts and implemented in a range of programmes to mainstream gender equality and inclusion in the COVID-19 response.
You will learn to: identify different impacts of COVID-19 on girls, women, boys and men with and without disabilities and of different ages; analyse the barriers and inequality that are creating an overburden of work, limiting access and increasing risks for women and girls in the MENA region; list practical actions to address barriers, risks and access; adapt key actions for the varying contexts and programmes in the MENA region, including sector-related gender aspects.
This course touches on all five steps in the training cycle from identifying needs of others through to evaluating training.
By the end you will be able to: list the steps in the training cycle and the key activities that need to happen at each stage; state key principles of adult learning and describe how these can be applied in both online and face-to-face training; write learner-centred training objectives that are based on identified needs; identify key learning points and ways in which these can be easily and effectively conveyed; demonstrate how training sessions can be made engaging, participatory and impactful.
