The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) are a set of international guidelines and standards for the design, implementation and assessment of livestock-based livelihood interventions to assist people affected by humanitarian crises. The LEGS handbook was first published in April 2009 with the second edition published in 2015, and a series of Training of Trainers (TOT) courses are being rolled out worldwide. The TOT trains participants to be able to deliver the 3-day LEGS training course. To date, the LEGS Project has run 21 TOTs, training over 360 people.
Applications are now invited for a cost-share LEGS TOT in Bangkok, Thailand. The TOT runs for 6 days, from 26th September to 1st October 2016. Participants may apply for the first 3 days of the course (26-28th September) if they are only interested in the LEGS training course rather than the training of trainers..
WHAT IS A LEGS TRAINER?
On completion of the 6-day training of trainers course, trainees become ‘LEGS Trainers’ and are equipped to carry out the 3-day LEGS Training Course in their own country or region. They will have spent 3 days being trained on the LEGS approach and 3 days being trained in adult learning and how to train others in the LEGS approach.
