Change of date: Evaluation training course put back to 3-7 November

The “Evaluating the Quality of Humanitarian Action” training course, which was initially supposed to take place in September, has finally been put back to 3-7 November. This 30-hour, classroom-based training course will provide the methodological knowledge needed to conduct or take part in an evaluation of the quality of a humanitarian programme. The course will also look at ALNAP’s Evaluation Pilot Guide which presents current thinking at the international level about the evaluation of humanitarian aid. Registration closes on 13 October.

Humanitarian actors need to improve the quality of their actions both for the beneficiaries of the programmes and for donors and funding agencies. Evaluation is one of the means by which organizations can learn and improve their practices, but it is a complex process which requires a variety of competencies. This training course provides participants with the methodological knowledge that is needed to take part in an evaluation of the quality of a humanitarian programme. They will also learn about the new Evaluation of Humanitarian Action Pilot Guide developed by the ALNAP network, which reflects the latest international thinking on the evaluation of humanitarian aid.

This training course is aimed at aid professionals who run projects or conduct evaluations (e.g. Programme Managers, Heads of Projects, Heads of Evaluation, Quality Managers from humanitarian organisations, etc.). Requirements:

  • Participants should have solid experience in the humanitarian sector or in evaluation in another sector
  • Participants should be fluent in French (writing, reading and speaking)
  • Location: Groupe URD Training Centre, Plaisians (France)
