This training, developed by the humanitarian team, for humanitarians working across the world, teaches best practice and skills to minimise needless suffering and ultimately save lives.

The page also lists current training opportunities including diverse programmes such as W.A.S.H training (supporting staff in the delivery of water, sanitation, and hygiene training), F.I.E.L.D (field managers in emergencies, learning and development) programme and many more.

The humanitarian capacity building team also works in an advisory capacity. As well as developing and delivering learning programmes, they will also support other organisations to deliver these services.
