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 CVA in accordance with the CaLP Competency Framework. Each participant is invited to define their own learning pathway, depending on their duties within Cash and Voucher Assistance 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 CVA. CaLP identifies 3 principal groups of CVA practitioners/stakeholders: 

Staff responsible for designing, implementing and monitoring Cash and Voucher Assistance. This group might include: programme managers, programme officers, technical specialists from any sector, such as food security, livelihoods, WASH, Health, or Shelter and MEAL specialists.

Staff who are, or will be, supporting the implementation of Cash and Voucher Assistance. This group might include: manager and officer level staff from supply chain, finance and ICT teams.

Managers who are, or who will be, supporting teams that are designing and implementing Cash and Voucher Assistance. This group might include: managers responsible for supporting teams involved in the design and implementation of Cash and Voucher Assistance and Programme Directors.

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 CVA across all functions necessary to the accountable delivery of CVA.

This 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).
