Context is based on the Core Humanitarian Competencies Framework and delivered by experienced, local RedR trainers. Two highly interactive, face-to-face workshops will introduce participants to key humanitarian and leadership concepts and skills.
Selma Scheewe, RedR UK Quality and Learning Manager, said: "Crucially, over the course of the programme, participants continue their vital field roles: on-the-job learning with the professional guidance of a coach is key to the programme. The participant is in the driving seat, develops his or her own learning plan, and literally, puts the training 'in context' during his or her day-to-day work."
Evidence from the 2011 pilot shows that Context’s two programmes provide participants with positive affirmation about their roles in humanitarian work, help them feel better prepared for the future, and better able to see their own role in a wider context.
