The humanitarian sector is facing crises of increasing complexity and severity and the need for expertise has never been greater. As the aid sector has grown exponentially over the past two decades, so has the number of aid workers. In a sector supported by a rapidly expanding and diverse global workforce, finding experienced candidates and building capacity through quality learning has become more vital than ever.
HPass is a multi-stakeholder initiative that is working towards a world where humanitarians and the people they serve benefit from greater access to quality humanitarian learning and professional recognition.
With HPass, any humanitarian, whether they are a volunteer or an experienced field worker, can access a platform to share both their field experience and academic qualifications using digital credentials based on the Open Badge standard. Individuals can become a member by signing up for a free account via the HPass digital platform, which will allow them to showcase their certifications, competencies, learning, and experience.
HPass will also be accessible by humanitarian employers and volunteer organisations, who will be able to search for individuals by their skills and experience, increasing the speed and efficiency of recruitment during an emergency or to meet ongoing operational needs.
