We are very pleased to announce that the Field Managers In Emergencies, Learning & Development Programme (FIELD) is now available in Arabic on our e-learning platform Kaya.
FIELD is a ground-breaking, free capacity strengthening programme for managers working in disaster response. Created by Save the Children UK and World Vision, FIELD’s focus is to develop the pool of local, national, and international staff who can prepare for and take charge of in-country operational programmes in humanitarian responses.
Is this learning programme for me?
FIELD has been specifically designed around the needs of Field Managers and other professionals with experience working in local, national or international NGOs, CSOs and humanitarian agencies. The programme was developed in collaboration with over 100 experts and specialists with a wide range of backgrounds from across the world to make sure FIELD’s learning resources are engaging, accurate and relevant.
How will I benefit from it?
FIELD focuses on building the knowledge, skills and capacity of those undertaking a frontline managerial role. The programme aims to increase the capabilities of local organisations to find, organise and mobilise staff and resources and get these resources to people in need; thereby improving the speed and quality of response.
“The cross-cutting subjects pathway can be taken by anyone local or international as they help in times of untimely catastrophe like the cyclone Idai which befell my country Zimbabwe without preparations. My friends, if they take this course, it will help in a greater way in times of need.”
– Nour, FIELD Programme Participant
How long will it take?
FIELD is completely self-directed. All learning resources are available on-demand and you can access the learning material wherever, whenever and however best suits your needs. Learn at your own pace and at a time convenient to you, whether online, or offline.
How will my learning be recognised?
As you successfully complete FIELD modules and provide feedback on your learning experiences you’ll be rewarded with digital badges. A digital badge is an online version of a certificate, with additional benefits. HPass uses digital badges to enable humanitarians to build up evidence of their experience and expertise.
Where can I access it?
FIELD is available for free on the Academy’s online learning platform, Kaya, which currently provides free online learning to 220,000+ humanitarian professionals and volunteers.
