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 child protection in emergencies 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. 

What's in it for you?

Five cycles of the CPIE PDP have been completed in the Asia Pacific (3 cycles), Middle East and Eastern Europe (1 cycle) and East and Southern Africa (1 cycle). The fourth cycle in Asia Pacific and the second cycle of the CPiE PDP in East and Southern Africa are currently underway.
