HPass is a new initiative dedicated to strengthening and supporting humanitarians everywhere.

Focusing on professional development in the humanitarian sector we have developed a digital platform where key players can meet: humanitarian workers and volunteers, learning and assessment providers, and employers.

We have recently piloted the first version of HPass with a view to improving the service before its global launch at the end of 2019.

Introducing digital badges

HPass also provides a related opportunity for learning and assessment providers to join a global platform, sign up to sector-recognised standards and provide digital credentials using digital badges. Individuals can store their digital badges on the free platform, MyHPass and share their skills, learning and experiences.

Global Standards

We have developed sets of global standards which supply criteria to measure the quality of learning, in consultation with learning and assessment providers from all over the world. We have designed them for organisations, companies, departments and institutes who provide learning services to anyone involved in humanitarian action.

If you meet these standards, you are contributing to the overall commitment that people involved in humanitarian action will have access to high-quality learning programmes that will allow them to work more effectively.
