  • HPass: a big step in learning and development for humanitarians

As the frequency and complexity of humanitarian crises continues to rise, there is increasing demand for a highly skilled and flexible workforce, capable of preparing for and responding more effectively to evolving and unforeseen crises.

For organisations involved in humanitarian preparedness and response, investing in learning and the development of staff and volunteers is no longer a luxury, but an urgent necessity. 

HPass responds to the need for consistent professional development and learning for humanitarians, who move frequently between organisations and locations, and need their skills and experience to be recognised in order to be deployed quickly, especially during emergency response.
