HPass Quality Standards

The HPass Quality Standards draw together best practice in humanitarian learning and assessment from across the global humanitarian sector. There are two sets of Quality Standards: The Humanitarian Learning Standards and the Standards for Assessment of Humanitarian Competencies.

The Standards can be used by learning and/ or assessment providers to review and improve the quality of the humanitarian learning and assessment they provide.

Organisations wishing to adopt the Quality Standards can access HPass Support Services which are implemented by RedR in conjunction with Bioforce. The Support Services assist organisations to adopt one, or both, sets of standards, or focus in on one specific Standard. The Support Services are recommended for organisations that are considering an independent Quality Review with a view to gaining HPass Certification. For a breakdown of the costs associated with accessing the HPass Support Services and the HPass Quality Review, please visit the HPass website.

Organisations that pass the Quality Review are provided with HPass Certified Status. HPass Certification provides international recognition that an organisation is providing a quality service which meets global best practice in learning and/ or assessment within the humanitarian sector. A list of current HPass Certified organisations is available on the HPass website.

Organisations who want to find out more about the Quality Standards, or are interested in accessing HPass Support Services should contact or visit the HPass Quality Standards website pages which contain further details including free HPass Quality Standards resources.
