Individual Capacity Building Options 

CaLP's Cash Learning Hub offers a wide range of individual capacity building options including e-learning, face to face training, structured learning pathways, videos, webinars, and more.

CaLP's training is broadly divided into 2 groups: The Standard Training Package and Specialised courses.

CaLP's Standard Training Package for Individuals

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: 

Technical programme design and quality: technical or operational staff responsible for leading and overseeing the design and monitoring of cash transfer programme. This group might include technical specialists such as food security, livelihoods, WASH or Shelter programme staff. 

Operational delivery of CTP: usually includes operations and support staff and can be understood to mean turning the programme design into an operational and implementation reality. This group might include Finance, Logistics, Administration, Security or IT staff.

Strategic planning and decision-making: includes (often more senior level) staff primarily involved in strategic planning and decision-making at the organisational level. This group might include Programme Managers, Country Directors, Head of Base, Programme Advisors at HQ level, and, perhaps donor personnel.

CaLP's Standard Package includes the following courses:

Building Individual Expertise Programme

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).
