CaLP Core Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) Skills for Technical Programme Design and Quality in Washington, North America

23rd February - 17th March 2017

The aim of this five (5) day face-to-face training is to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence of humanitarian organisations' practitioners for cash transfer technical design and quality.

This course targets technical or operational staff responsible for leading and overseeing the design and monitoring of cash transfer programmes. This group might include technical specialists from many sectors, including but not limited to specialists in food security, livelihoods, WASH and shelter. The course is focused on a technical and programmatic perspective, and it incorporates examples and case studies from multiple sectors and from multi-sectoral programmes.

The objectives of this course are to be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to design, implement and monitor cash transfer programmes to ensure quality
  • Identify and mitigate the programmatic risks of using CTP
  • Make technical and programmatic decisions for designing and implementing CTP across sectors
  • Produce, for the programme side, organisation-level standard operating procedures (SOPs) for designing and delivering CTP
  • Identify the complementarity of functions from within programme and operations teams for high quality CTP

This five (5) day course will be delivered on non-consecutive days, spread over a four week time period to allow practitioners based in Washington, DC or nearby to attend.

Attendance on all five (5) days is necessary. The dates are Thursday February 23, Friday February 24, Friday March 3, Friday March 10, and Friday March 17.

This course will be given consecutively over the course of a single work week in Washington, DC at a later date. Applications will be received and invitations will be sent on a rolling basis. Priority will be given to applicants based in or near Washington, DC who work at humanitarian organizations who are partners or are exploring becoming partners of USAID's Office of Food for Peace (FFP).
