The Education Cluster Unit (ECU), with the generous support of Save the Children Norway and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is hosting an Education Cluster Coordinator training in Geneva from the 14th to the 18th of July 2014. The training will be held in English.
The overall objective of the Education Cluster Coordinators training is to develop the capacity of current and future Coordinators to effectively coordinate education at national and local levels in a setting where an Education Cluster has been activated.
The course will run for five full days and will cover all aspects of cluster coordination, including new guidelines and procedures to the Humanitarian Programme Cycle, new initiatives in Information Management and the Education Cluster Coordinator Handbook.
Places on the course are limited with priority given to candidates using the following criteria:
- Education Cluster Staff currently working in major emergencies
- Deployable Standby, Emergency Response and Rapid Response Team Staff
- Regional and Global Advisors who provide technical support to current active Education Clusters
In addition current Cluster Coordinators can identify an MoE counterpart or Education Cluster partner who will accompany them to the training.
