The aim of the Training Working Group was to advise and support the ETC network in building capacity and expertise that will drive implementation of the strategy.
The Training Working Group was launched in December 2015 to advise and support the ETC network in building capacity and expertise that will drive implementation of ETC2020 strategy.
A two-day workshop was hosted by the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) in Germany to identify key training gaps, explore training case studies and agree on a format for a work plan. The delivery of training cuts across all thematic areas of the ETC2020 strategy with all other Working Groups identifying training requirements.
The task of mapping courses and qualifications, keeping the training directory up-to-date and ensuring that all other agreed work plan outputs will require a full time person in the Global ETC to keep things on track. The desired outcome is to establish a permanent training committee to provide training oversight and to provider general direction to this new training role.
As with all ETC2020 Tactical Working Groups, activities and outcomes will be carried over and the group itself discontinued in this form.
Led by Save the Children, organisations that contributed to the Training Tactical Working Group included: Action Contre La Faim (ACF), CDAC Network, German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), Global VSAT Forum, Government of Luxembourg, Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB), UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and WFP’s FITTEST Training Services, supported by the Global ETC cell.
