Context is an innovative and dynamic training programme for humanitarian staff.

Compiled by 15 leading humanitarian agencies under the Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies (CBHA) and based on the Core Humanitarian Competencies Framework, Context provides a solid basis for staff development for improved humanitarian response.

Context contains two staff development programmes:

  • The Management and Leadership Skills Development Programme  
  • The Core Skills Development Programme

Both aim to increase the capacity for humanitarian leadership and enhance the knowledge and behavioural skills of current personnel whatever their programme area or discipline.

This site gives your agency all the information and support needed for planning and implementing each Context programme, including direct access to course structure and content.
