The Kenya Academy Centre held a Curriculum Design Workshop in early November. The workshop brought together several partners and humanitarian actors such as the National Drought Management Authority, in order to try to define key learning products for humanitarian work across East Africa.
The workshop looked into segmenting different target groups and defining their learning needs. Some of the learning products highlighted to serve wide reaching audiences were:
- Basics of Disaster Risk Management (DRM)
- Leadership and soft skills in DRM
- Thematic courses in Nutrition, Water and Sanitation, Finance for non-finance managers.
These learning products will form the basis for prioritising training and learning in the humanitarian sector in East Africa.
“This workshop gave me an opportunity to analyse the learning scenario for humanitarians not just in Kakamega County but in Kenya as a whole.” – Samuel Wamukhoye, Kakamega County Official
