A research project in partnership with the London School of Economics

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy have partnered with the London School of Economics to conduct a research project. The aim is to analyse if and how the recent changes due to COVID-19 have impacted the access and use of learning. The focus is on the Humanitarian Operations Programme (HOP) –a three level training programme, specifically designed by the Humanitarian Leadership Academy to strengthen capacities of local staff.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for humanitarian actors from international, national and local organisations within the sector who have registered and participated on the Humanitarian Operations Programme (HOP) – Fundamentals (level 1) – hosted on the e-learning platform Kaya. We are also looking for people who have participated in the HOP Core (level 2) and HOP Response (level 3) programmes delivered previously by the Academy. The participant input is vital for our researchers to understand and gain an insight into their experience of accessing the programme and undertaking the learning within it, pre and post pandemic.

The survey

The aim of this survey is to examine the impact of COVID-19 on users of Save the Children’s Humanitarian Operations Programme (HOP). In particular, we will be examining if and how recent changes due to Covid-19, have impacted the access and use of learning. We also wish to ascertain if and how HOP has been utilised in humanitarian workplaces during the pandemic.

No personal data will be collected as part of this survey. All the responses to the survey will be kept completely anonymous. The data collected will be used as part of a research report submitted to the London School of Economics as part of a masters degree programme and Save the Children UK for programme review purposes. All data related to this survey will be deleted from our records on the 15th April 2021.
