The F.I.E.L.D Programme

Field Managers In Emergencies, Learning & Development Programme

A new online learning programme to develop the pool of local and national staff who can prepare for and take charge of in-country operational programmes in chronic and new emergencies.

The F.I.E.L.D. is a multi-agency programme that is available to national staff working at international NGOs, national and local NGOs and civil society organisations.

It focuses on building the knowledge, skills and capacity of those undertaking a front-line 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.

What is covered?

The programme covers a number of different areas including:

  • International Humanitarian System
  • Managing and Leading people in Emergencies
  • Programme and project management
  • Safety and Security
  • Finance and Grant Management
  • Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning
  • Communications, advocacy and media
  • Logistics management

We are working with partners across the sector to develop content that is relevant to all, with different voices and perspectives. Content for the different topics will become available as and when it is developed. The first topic area is ‘Managing and Leading People in Emergencies’.


This programme consists of online learning pathways and embraces innovative computer game technology to create “serious games” – a chance for learners to use their knowledge and skills, make decisions and see the outcome of their choices, in a safe, digital environment.

It also signposts other on-line learning resources, raising awareness of existing learning opportunities and creating a learning hub. We also aim to give learners the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge with others across the sector, creating learning communities.
