Training course – “Quality and Accountability COMPAS training course”

Having updated our Quality COMPAS method in light of the CHS, and having renamed this new improved method the Quality and Accountability COMPAS, we are running a training course for those interested in using the COMPAS to implement the Core Humanitarian Standard. The course also covers the background, issues at stake, methods and tools related to quality and accountability management in the international aid sector. It will be held on 26-28 February 2018 in Paris in the offices of Coordination Sud.

The course will give you insight into the issues at stake, and the methods and tools used in quality and accountability management, on two levels:

  • To implement and monitor projects; and
  • To establish or improve an institutional framework for monitoring and supporting projects.

It is aimed at professionals from the aid sector involved in implementing, monitoring or supporting projects, such as: Operations Managers, Programme Managers, Project Managers, staff in charge of Monitoring and Evaluation, technical reference points, or Quality and Accountability reference points.

The three-day course covers the following:

  • Managing quality and accountability in the international aid sector : background, main issues at stake, methods and tools;
  • Using the Quality and Accountability COMPAS to implement the Core Humanitarian Standard throughout the project cycle and to evaluate projects; links and complementarity with the activities of the CHS Alliance and with the Sphere standards;
  • A framework for analysing the situation of each organisation/project in relation to the commitments of the Core Humanitarian Standard.
  • An approach to improve existing practices at the operational or institutional levels.
