Learning and Capacity Building

The GPC is committed to continually improving protection capacity. To this end, the GPC has developed a specialized programme on protection coordination dedicated to field protection cluster coordinators, as well as trainings and learning programmes on a range of protection issues. If you are interested in any of the trainings or learning programmes presented below, contact the GPC Head of Learning and Capacity Building Pillar.

  • The Specialized Programme on Protection Coordination (SPPC) is an initiative led by the GPC and its AoRs, in partnership with the International Institute of Humanitarian Law. This is an inter-agency blended learning programme for coordinators, co-coordinators and colleagues engaged in protection coordination (including CP, GBV, HLP and MA) in field operations, at national and sub-national levels. It is specifically designed and developed to strengthen the skills needed for effective protection coordination to ensure a harmonised and collaborative protection response. The SPPC is a three-month blended learning programme comprised of a self-study phase, an on-line workshop, and a project.  The SPPC is routinely offered in English and in French.
  • The GPC has also developed dedicated trainings and learning programmes on a range of protection issues for field cluster coordinators and partners. Please reach out to the helpdesk for support.
