Location: Istanbul, Turkey

The Education Cluster and the Child Protection Working Group are planning a second joint training on Information Management (IM) after the successful first one held in Geneva in July.  The overall objective of the training is to improve the IM competencies of Education Cluster and Child Protection Cluster and Sub-Cluster Coordinators, Co-leads and Information Managers, especially those working in the field. The training will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from December 8th to December 12th (5 days).

The content of the training will focus on helping participants develop practical, technical IM skills (database management, implementing IM systems in-country, needs assessments, collecting/storing/analyzing data, working with 3W tools and information, etc.) as well as explore better ways for IMs and Coordinators to work together and with other partners around IM issues.  Expected results are the following:

  •  Information Managers and Coordinators gain core and technical competencies for IM according to their respective roles
  • Information Managers and Coordinators know how to use field-tested Education and Child Protection Information Management tools (e.g.3W database, Secondary Data Review)
  • Information Managers and Coordinators better understand one another’s roles and responsibilities and how to better work together within a cluster

The training will include approximately 20 participants as the training support is very individualized.

Should you be interested in the training, please complete the application form and send it along with your CV to Brigitte Court bcourt@unicef.org and Lisa Sabot-Schmid lisa.sabot@savethechildren.org by  October 10th. Your application will be reviewed and you will receive an answer before October 24th.

Some feedbacks from the first CP/ED IM training participants:

  •  “All Cluster Coordinators and all IMs should take this training”
  • “I honestly learnt a lot, it gave me the chance to see that I actually can do something even in the absence of an IMO. Really well done guys, it was engaging, interesting, fun.”
  • “Great facilitation! Very concrete and field-oriented, by facilitators who are very used to doing the job in the field, which is crucial. Also very supportive and constructive facilitation, making participants (for some of whom IM can be scary) feel at ease.”

  2. Lisa Sabot-Schmid says:

    Lunches, morning and afternoon coffee breaks will be offered on training days. Accomodation costs (room and breakfast) will also be covered by the training organisers. As a participant, you (or your organisation) will have pay for airfares, visa and additional per diem.

    Excellent initiative!!! I imagine the Humanitarian Program Cycle will be a subject of the training. We got amazing experiences (bad ones and good ones) in Sahel countries, linking Information management and the humanitarian planning. Not sure I will be able to join the training (Ebola!!!); but we could maybe have a bilateral discussion before with you Landon.
