Request for proposals: Learning and Development Framework

Background and Context

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy is a global learning initiative set up to facilitate partnerships and collaborative opportunities to enable people to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries. In the past two years since its launch, the Academy has been able to reach over 44,000 learners representing humanitarian first-responders, international non-governmental organisations, United Nations professionals and others. The Global Academy Office is based in London and works with 5 Academy Centres over the world.

The Academy recognises it can do much more to support organisations in their uptake and application of our learning offer, particularly with regard to identifying and systematising individual learning in the service of organisational missions and objectives. It therefore seeks to conceive and pilot a Learning and Development Framework that will undergird its offer to organisations active in humanitarian support, help empower and mainstream organisational learning and professional development in a variety or institutional contexts.
