As the frequency and complexity of humanitarian crises continue to rise, there is increasing demand for a highly skilled workforce capable of preparing for and responding more effectively and efficiently to disasters. For organisations involved in humanitarian preparedness and response, or located in crisis-affected countries, investing in the learning and development of staff and volunteers has become an urgent necessity.

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy has developed a wide range of platforms, products and services to help such organisations.

Making HPass work for your organisation:

We host HPass, a separate platform essential for humanitarian staff, volunteers and recruiters, and providers of humanitarian learning and assessment services. HPass has two key elements, both of which integrate with Kaya.

Digital badging for humanitarians and organisations

This complements Kaya by enabling humanitarians to receive a badge, which they can store online on a publicly visible profile and share with employers and peers via a link, on social media or in an e-signature. Humanitarians maintain the same profile as they move between organisations and can accumulate evidence of their achievements throughout their careers.

Quality Standards for Humanitarian Learning and Assessment

The HPass Quality Standards are globally recognised standards developed by and for learning providers to support quality service delivery throughout the sector. Organisations can access and adopt the standards to ensure their learning and/or assessment provision meets best practice. Organisations can also become HPass Certified by passing an independent Quality Review which is internationally recognised within the sector.
