Child Protection in Emergencies Training (CPIE)

MAIN HOST(S): RedR Australia

Type: Training Course Date: 17 - 19 Oct 2018 Location: Australia (Melbourne) Venue: RedR Australia, 55-61 Barry Street Carlton, VIC 3056

The number of people affected by humanitarian crises globally has almost doubled over the past decade. Increasing emergencies brings a growing demand for humanitarians with expertise in child protection in emergencies (CPiE) and, by delivering this training, we aim to increase the pool of experts available to deploy in this sector.

Who is this course for?

This course is an ideal choice for humanitarian practitioners and those entering the sector that have an interest and commitment to child protection, and want to increase their knowledge of how children can be affected in emergency settings.  The course will broaden participants’ understanding of child protection within the broader humanitarian system, and equip them with CPiE tools and strategies to apply in the field.

This intermediate-level course is ideal for people already involved or likely to be involved in child protection in emergencies programming, as a coordinator, practitioner and/or decision maker. It is expected that participants will already have a sound understanding of general child protection issues and an awareness of the risk factors that increase children's vulnerability in emergencies.

Course objectives

  • Improve their understanding of risk factors that make children vulnerable in emergencies
  • Develop knowledge of best practices in prevention, preparedness and response to protecting children in emergencies
  • Be able to apply their skills to protect children
  • Understand the minimum standards for protecting children in humanitarian settings
  • Appreciate the role of coordination in the child protection in emergencies sector
  • Gain improved leadership and coordination skills in formal and informal cluster settings
