CaLP’s 2015-19 strategic direction aims to support the community of practice to move beyond basic skills and knowledge development and to take a strategic and longer term view to building demonstrable improvement in CTP, through a focus on individual competence. In order to do so, CaLP will work with individual practitioners through a standard training package, specialised modules, the Building Individual Expertise Programme and self-directed learning opportunities.
CaLP's Standard Training Package provides opportunities for individuals to build knowledge and expertise in CTP, in accordance with the CaLP Competency Framework. Each participant is invited to define their own learning pathway, depending on their duties within cash transfer programming and their own professional interests, and then participates in a series of online and face-to-face capacity building opportunities.
As one means of promoting professional networking, CaLP offers capacity building workshops to pracititioners who have similar principal role(s) in the quality design and delivery of CTP. CaLP identifies 3 principal groups of CTP practitioners/stakeholders:
Recognising the continually emerging innovations and challenges in cash transfer programming, as well as identifying particular themes, CaLP offers a set of specialised modules. The below themes are CaLP’s thematic priorities for the 2015-2019 strategy period, and are illustrative of the topics that will inform the development of specialised modules:
A limited number of practitioners will aim to go beyond the standard training programme or will turn to CaLP with an existing level of expertise that surpasses our standard content. Such individuals will be striving to ensure that their skills respond to the growing demand for experts in CTP across all functions necessary to the accountable delivery of CTP.
The six-month programme--implemented in coordination with the CashCap initiative will outline a pathway delivered through the standard training package, but will offer a more intensive series of capacity building sessions, as well as additional peer-to-peer support, mentoring and placements (when funding permits).
In addition to the individual capacity building programmes outlined above, CaLP offers access to a growing repertoire of online, e-learning and blending learning opportunities, engaging practitioners in self-led capacity building. Online learning will provide resources and guiding structures to allow participants of all levels and functions to learn in their own time and at their own pace. Skill development will be guided by a range of learning pathways and may be reinforced by systematic assessment of participant progress.
