Course Introduction

About CaLP
The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) is a global partnership of humanitarian actors engaged in policy, practice and research within cash transfer programming (CTP). Formed of a community of practice including over 150 organisations and more than 5,000 individuals in the humanitarian sector, CaLP is based on learning, knowledge sharing, networking and coordination around the appropriate and timely use of CTP in humanitarian response. CaLP believes that when appropriately incorporated into humanitarian response planning that includes access to goods and services, CTP presents opportunities for effective and efficient programming to meet the needs of people and communities affected by crises. With the number, scale and complexity of humanitarian crises increasing, CaLP acts as a catalyst for positive transformation within the sector.

Today, CaLP is the most representative body working towards the same goal in CTP. It now consists of 75 member organisations and individuals who are representative of all sectors and stakeholders necessary to achieve dramatic change. CaLP’s membership includes the private sector, governments, UN agencies, NGOs and international financial and telecommunication institutions.
Course overview

By working collaboratively and individually in a seminar and workshop setting approach, this training of trainers activity will result in a cohort of trainers with the competence and confidence to deliver CaLP Core CTP Skills for Programme Staff. Participants who successfully complete the TOT will be endorsed to deliver this training. The TOT will use an active, participatory approach, whereby everyone offers contributions to the proceedings and accepts responsibility for his/her own learning during the TOT. The workshop will use a mix of plenary presentations and discussions, small group work, practice facilitation, and individual preparation and planning. 

CaLP through funding from the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO) will be providing the ToT itself without any fees and lunches will be provided whilst at the training. You or your home agency will be responsible for all other expenses such as Visa, travel, lodging, local transportation, other meals, and all other expenses.
