Capacity Development

Conceptual Framework

  • The Global Education Cluster Capacity Development Conceptual Framework uses the Inter-Agency Standing Committee’s humanitarian programme cycle as the organizing structure to clearly link the training approach and content to the series of actions necessary for effective coordination.
  • The inner two layers of the Framework focus on the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes Education Cluster leadership teams will need when leading the Cluster (CORE 1) and application throughout each stage of the humanitarian programme cycle (CORE 2). CORE 1 and 2 are part of the Core Coordination Training that features two key parts: distance-learning and residential face-to-face component, largely based on the Global Education Cluster's Summary Guide to Developing Education Cluster Strategies, and the accompanying Strategy Package.
  • CORE 3 (Specialized) outlines supplementary trainings to further enhance coordination and information management skills.
