About the Course

This course is structured around the project cycle and covers all the key skills required to design, implement, and monitor cash and voucher assistance. The course is focused on a technical/programmatic perspective and incorporates examples and case studies from multiple sectors.

This 12-week online course is equivalent to taking the CALP Network’s flagship 5-day face to face training course, “Core CVA Skills for Programme Staff” and you would receive the same certificate of completion at the end.

Therefore, this course is for programme staff responsible for designing, implementing, and monitoring cash and voucher programmes. This course will be conducted in English.

How is the course delivered?

This course will be delivered remotely (online) using a range of methods including videos, e-learning, offline written group tasks, and facilitated interactive online workshops.


How long is the course?

This course will start on April 16th and will last through July. As a learner, you will be expected to spend approximately three hours a week on this course. There are 10 weeks of learning with three check-in weeks built in for you to catch up on course work. It is equivalent to a 5-day face-to-face training in terms of learner time.

The majority of learning is self-directed, meaning that you can watch the videos and complete the e-learnings at any time that suits you, however, attendance at the 6 facilitated online workshops is essential in order to complete the course and gain your certificate. The dates and times of these workshops will be confirmed once your registration has been completed and you have been accepted onto the course, however, the tentative dates are as follows:
