Talent Development is a collaborative and localised capacity-building project, which improves the quality of humanitarian responses. It combines three blended, long-term learning and development programmes, as well as an international coaching network, to train over 1000 humanitarian workers in Kenya, Ethiopia, DRC, Bangladesh and Jordan.
The Talent Development project equips humanitarian workers with the skills, knowledge and competencies necessary to meet the needs of the most vulnerable. The project targets those best placed to assist crisis-affected communities: the local staff of NGOs, civil society organisations and government.
The Entry-Level Humanitarian Trainee Scheme (HTS) is a yearlong programme, led by Save the Children under the Talent Development project. It aimed to train 175 individuals who are beginning their career in the humanitarian sector, through on-the-job experience, simulation training, distance learning and coaching. The first Humanitarian Trainee Scheme graduated in May 2016 a further three cycles graduated in early 2017 and the final three cycles are set to graduate mid-2017.
