All our Project Cycle Management courses follow a participatory approach based on case studies, with many exercises and facilitated discussions. This allows trainers and participants to bring in and share their experiences in the group.
There are two sets of courses: entry-level BASIC courses, and ADVANCED courses.
Please note that all courses are available in English and French. Ces cours peuvent également être animés en français.
The two advanced courses are for persons with previous experience in conducting field assessments and at least two years of active work in project management. The focus on all advanced courses is on reviewing, discussing and solving problematic issues, including subjects brought up by the participants.
The comprehensive five-day course Project Cycle Management Compact provides fast-track training on
a) needs assessment
b) planning a project
c) programming activities
d) monitoring the implementation and
e) preparing evaluations
in a compact format. It is designed for practitioners in project management who have either not yet obtained basic training, or not yet on all subjects of the project cycle. However, we strongly advise beginners and intermediary practitioners to choose the basic courses while only experienced practitioners should choose the advanced compact version:
- Project Cycle Management Compact (5 days) – Fast-track project management for practitioners
Before phasing out humanitarian and development programmes or projects, it is crucial to develop a sustainable disengagement strategy to withdraw responsibly. This course focuses on developing and integrating an appropriate strategy and exit plan in project proposal development, developing monitoring and follow-up tools for the implementation of the disengagement plan of action, and to develop a fast-track approach with the involvement of all main stakeholders for programmes or projects which need to be ended within a very short period of time:
- Exit Strategies: Effective Programme Disengagement (3 days) – Achieving programme and project sustainability
