Child Protection in Emergencies

Professional Development Programme

The Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme is designed to enhance the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of CPiE response staff.

The programme aims to empower professionals from international and national NGOs as well as governments, to strengthen their child protection response capabilities in both chronic crises and new emergencies.

The programme uses a blended learning approach: participants engage in distance learning sessions, residential training, job placements, group work and reflective study.

The programme's blended format and diverse pool of expert facilitators coupled with its complimentary mentoring component make it a truly 360˚ learning experience.

Piloted in South East and East Asia, the programme is now running for the whole of Asia and the Pacific region, the Middle East and Eastern Europe region and the East and Southern Africa Region.
