Our training services underpin every aspect of our work. Our objective, wherever possible, is to equip delegates with the skills, knowledge and resources needed to be more effective. Our trainers use participatory approaches, encouraging people to draw on their experience to develop their own and each other’s learning. All trainers are skilled in allowing learners to discover and overcome their own internal barriers that prevent their personal and continuous development. We consciously work to ensure inclusion and have a strong track record for example of training women and delivering in dual language (English and Somali). A unique, DFiD funded two year training programme is bring together world class trainers and academics with researchers from across Somalia A two year High-quality Research Support (HQRS) Programme) is the first research training programme of its kind in Somalia or Somaliland.
