This post looks at the issue of accrediting people who work in the humanitarian sector but who receive only informal training through workshops and on the ground experience. It's a way of helping people affected by crises play a bigger part in responses. It's a problem identified by ALNAP, a global network of aid providers. According to the article, learning programs and platforms mapped to skills frameworks such as the Core Humanitarian Competencies Framework are provided free to individuals by agencies like DisasterReady.org and Kaya. A proposal now "incubating" at the Humanitarian Leadership Academy called HPass is a 'community edition' of Salava's Open Badge Passport. Via Badge News.
