How will the training be useful?
Competency based HR can facilitate an organization with selecting, developing and managing staff in an efficient, fair and strategic manner. Producing competent and well-managed staff in turn leads to accountable and effective organisations.
The Core Humanitarian Competency Framework (CHCF), developed in 2010, aims to provide humanitarian organisations with a common set of behaviours that have proven to be effective in responses. The training will introduce competency-based HR and CHCF.
The four day training on Core Humanitarian Competency Framework is proposed to facilitate participants with:
- Skills and tools to apply CHCF to strengthen their humanitarian response initiatives
- Tools and methods on adopting the CHCF in the most relevant way
- Competency-based approaches to promote organizational and individual growth
- Experience sharing on using competency based HR practices
Who is it for?
- HR managers
- Program Managers
- Regional/provincial coordinators of National level NGOs
- All applicants must have interest and prior experience in human resource management

What is the training about?
Organizations adopt and apply numerous Quality and Accountability (Q&A) standards such as the Sphere Standards, Core Humanitarian Standard, etc. It is essential to continue to promote and apply the use of these standards to ensure aid organisations deliver effective service to the affected population while holding the utmost integrity. The process of systematically adopting and adapting these standards can be overwhelming for some given their own competing priorities or the lack of technical expertise to ensure Q&A is mainstreamed in the whole organisation both in policies and practices.
The Q&A Mainstreaming training will offer insights and tools on how organisations could embark on a mainstreaming journey. For organisations that are already promoting and applying Q&A, the training will offer a platform to discuss some of the challenges and pitfalls of Q&A mainstreaming process.
By end of the training participants are expected to have:
- Assessed Q&A mainstreaming process in their respective organisations
- Understood the steps and process of Q&A mainstreaming
- Shared experience of challenges and successes of Q&A mainstreaming process
- Shared experiences of impact of Q&A mainstreaming process
- Familiarized with some of the tools for mainstreaming
Who should Apply?
We welcome participants who are interested in Q&A mainstreaming as well as those who are already promoting and applying Q&A organisation-wide for cross sharing and learning purposes. Specifically the following participants will benefit from the training:
- Accountability staff
- MEAL staff
- Programme staff
- Management staff
- Support services (HR, etc)
We recommend a combination of the above with at least two participants from each organization.
23 October 2018 (09.30am – 04.00pm)

As an organization, Community World Service Asia always strives to support partners with initiatives that aim to strengthen the capacity of their staff and representatives. As Quality & Accountability regional focal points in Asia, our focus is particularly on strengthening quality and accountability (Q&A) mechanisms while supporting academia, government departments and local NGOs on various project management and humanitarian interventions.
Keeping in line our mandate, we are now offering a 5-day certificate course that will focus on applying the basic principles of Q&A including the ‘Do No Harm’ approach to the project management cycle in humanitarian action.
Participants will learn to apply humanitarian principles and standards in emergency and non-emergency situations. This will in-turn help to ensure greater accountability towards project participants/affected populations and ensure their interventions do not cause any divisions or conflict in the community they work with.
This training is specifically designed for young professionals (beginners or youth aiming for a career in the development/humanitarian sector).

The impact of humanitarian work on communities depends greatly upon the quality of services and accountability of actions both during emergency and non-emergency times.
However, the impact of our activities depends as much on behavioural and professional standards of individuals who work for our organisations. Humanitarian agencies therefore have a duty of care to affected communities and a responsibility to ensure that right-holders are treated with dignity and respect and that certain minimum standards of behaviour are observed. The goal is to create an environment free of sexual exploitation and abuse, harassment and other unacceptable behaviour in humanitarian crisis and development work
Course Aim and Objectives
This course aims to gather professional humanitarian workers from (I)NGOs, UN, donors and government agencies who aim to become experts in complaints handling. It will allow participants to understand the linkages between quality & accountability and handling complaints, from reception to investigation and implementation of the learning. More specifically, at the end of the course, participants have acquired the following skills:
- Understand the different Q&A initiatives and how they complete each other
- Explain and apply the 9 Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) commitments and identify how they contribute to improved humanitarian interventions
- Explain terminology related to sensitive complaints
- Understand the global investigative framework including specific skills to conduct interviews
- Demonstrate a robust knowledge on how to handle complaints, from communication to reception of complaints and subsequent investigations
- Able to support and manage an ongoing investigation and its follow-up action
The methodology will be very participatory, allowing participants to be involved in a dynamic way at all times through presentations, debates, experience sharing, group work, learning parts, videos. The course will be conducted in English.
