Course: Managing People in Emergencies (credit rated) - Funded by ECHO, August 09

Submitted by Selina_RedR on July 7, 2009 - 12:30pm.

People are key in any humanitarian response. Managing people can be difficult at the best of times, but during a complex and unpredictable humanitarian emergency, the ability to manage people effectively is even more challenging.

To help address this challenge, this course, sponsored by the European Commissions Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO) equips people with the essential skills and knowledge needed to manage people in emergency situations.


Dates & Location
12 - 14 August 09. London, UK

This course aims to improve the management of people in humanitarian assistance programmes by providing participants with the opportunity to question, develop, share and reflect through a competency- based model of learning and assessment.

This three day course will give participants an overview of the skills required for managing people in emergencies and will look at topics including:

-the role of a manager
-building and supporting a team
-communication and negotiation skill
-leadership and motivation
-conflict management
-human resource issues in emergencies

Managing People in Emergencies has been credit rated by Oxford Brookes University and is equivalent to 5 M-level credits. Credits can be transferred to the Masters in Development and Emergency Practice (DEP) at Oxford Brookes or other similar postgraduate qualifications. Participants interested in transferring credits to Oxford Brookes should note that currently the minimum transfer is 10 credit points. This can be achieved through combining the Managing People in Emergencies with Managing Projects in Emergencies or applying for recognised prior learning or experience (RPL/RPE) in the other subject area, subject to acceptance by the University.

The ECHO funded Managing Projects in Emergencies course is available 10-11 August and participants are invited to apply for both or just one dependent upon individual needs.

Intended Audience
The course is directed at humanitarian personnel responsible for managing others. It is also applicable to other managers in the development or charity sector working in emergency environments. Participants are likely to be fairly new to their managerial role, or have experience but without any formal training. All participants are seeking an opportunity to explore management theory and access new tools and techniques to fulfil their management role successfully.

This course is funded by ECHO, which enables us to offer low course fees to eligible aid workers. To be eligible, participants must be currently working in the humanitarian sector in some capacity or taking up a position immediately after attending the course.

The course fee is £220 per person for the three day programme.

Costs include the course workbook and resource materials, refreshments and lunch on both days. Participants are responsible for arranging their own travel to and from the venue, and accommodation if required.
