Training of Trainers – Sphere & ADCAP
by ASB Indonesia & Philippines

About the Course
This course is designed to bring together key skills to mainstream inclusion into organisations and the wider humanitarian sector. The course builds capacity through building training skills on Sphere and increasing current knowledge on Gender, Age and Disability and supports understanding of ADCAP Minimum Standards for Age and Disability Inclusion in Humanitarian Action. The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is an integral part of the next Sphere 2018 Handbook version and therefore also part of the training.

Training Length: 5 days (9am-5pm)
Location: Bayview Hotel, Ermita, Manila, Philippines
Facilitators: Axel Schmidt, Benjamin Bernandino, Ary Anata and Annie Sloman.
