Global Learning Centre

Training Catalogue


When the Global Learning Centre opened its doors in June of 2009, it embraced an ambitious programme to increase the availability of high quality learning to support improved protection and service delivery, to assist with the consolidation of internal reforms, and to help staff members pursue reasonable career development expectations. The breadth and range of activities that UNHCR staff and their partners perform, the size of the target audience (over 8,000!) and its geographical dispersion make for a daunting but exhilarating task. The GLC is progressively increasing its offerings with new, targeted programmes in all major subject areas, with special focus on protection, operations, and resources management. An area of particular interest concerns the development of leadership and interpersonal or “soft” skills. In an environment characterized by growing levels of interagency coordination and joint planning, there is an identified need to further develop those very skills and attitudes without which the impact of functional competence is diminished. The GLC supports a holistic view of learning as a change process: the acquisition of knowledge must be matched by the ability – and the willingness - to make the best use of it to influence the environment in which we work. To ensure on-time access to learning material, the GLC has adopted instructional technology to complement traditional face-to-face modes of delivery. Learn&Connect, our Learning Management System, allows participants to register, launch learning activities, participate in on-line courses, give and receive feedback and assessments, and keep a record of each participant’s learning history. As UNHCR’s internet

connectivity continues to improve, greater numbers of learners will have on-line access. In the interim, the GLC continues to work with CD-ROMs and printed materials to ensure that all staff, no matter the location, can join our global classroom. The GLC believes that learning can be a powerful motivator of staff performance, particularly when the learning can be put to immediate use. In striving to increase learning opportunities, and foster a culture of learning, we are also advocating for greater institutional flexibility in recognising newly acquired skills when considering reassignment. This Catalogue presents the currently available training and learning opportunities for UNHCR staff, affiliated workforce and partners. It is a living document that will be regularly updated to reflect new products, and is meant to assist staff members and their managers in planning their learning paths, and to assist partners with their learning needs. Recognizing that additional learning needs may exist, the GLC also offers limited External Studies support, particularly in specialized functional areas. More information on all offerings can be found on the Learn &Connect platform. GLC staff believe that learning is fundamentally about change – change in how we perform, in what we know and in how effectively we collaborate. We know that learning takes time, involves practice in the real world of our work and is not always easy. Learning is also not a privilege, it is a necessity for the organization to successfully adapt to the changing contexts within which UNHCR finds itself working. Ultimately, as the delivery of protection and humanitarian assistance becomes increasingly professionalized and – some may say – bureaucratic, we passionately believe that the acquisition of skills and knowledge cannot be divorced from the ethical values that underpin humanitarian action - among them, respect for the people we care for, and a true commitment to helping them remain protagonists of the processes that affect their lives.

Workshop for Blended Learning Code of Conduct - Induction and Refresher Sessions The Code of Conduct, which all UNHCR staff are requested to sign when they join the organization, is an essential point of reference to guide us in our daily work. Based on the various UN rules and regulations setting standards for International Civil Servants, the CoC seeks to distill a common set of values and behaviours for UNHCR staff members and other associated with it (consultants, interns), showing their relevance to our refugee work, and to our daily interface with internal and external partners. In this sense, the CoC is very much a living document, and the annual sessions offer an opportunity to discuss the ethical challenges that may arise, and ways to overcome them.

Objectives Upon completion of this course the learner will be able to: ●

Apply the Code of Conduct to his/her personal and professional behaviour;

Deepen his/her understanding of the Code of Conduct;

Protection Training and continuous learning are important components of UNHCR’s strategy to ensure that all staff are familiar with the Office’s protection mandate and have a common understanding of the basic principles of international protection. To ensure that more staff have access to protection learning opportunities, new methodologies and technical support are being used to develop innovative and accessible learning. At a more advanced level, protection learning opportunities aim to strengthen specific skills and provide more specialized knowledge on thematic activities.

Refugee Resettlement Fraud Based on the framework of the Policy and Procedural Guidelines: Addressing Resettlement Fraud Perpetrated by Refugees, the Refugee Resettlement Fraud Learning Programme (RRFLP) is designed to develop field staff skills in investigative techniques and reporting procedures. The programme consists of a six-week self-study and a four-day workshop, designed for field-staff with an exposure to resettlement and fraud, but with no prior experience with investigations.

20


The learning tools used in this programme are self-study, knowledge tests and face-to-face learning during the workshop. The latter is based on a case study approach in which participants review each phase of the investigation life cycle. Participants work through case studies in various phases with new information and evidence being revealed at various points. The major case is complemented by a number of short scenarios, role playing, small group discussions, and presentations. The major case and scenarios have all been developed using fact patterns and investigation activities drawn from real UNHCR investigations, with adjustments made to respect confidentiality.

Using the Universal Periodic Review to enhance the protection of persons of concern to UNHCR The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process, which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States.

37


UNHCR’s engagement with the UPR requires a wide range of initiatives before, during and after the actual review of a country by the HRC. This engagement includes preparation of UNHCR contributions (incorporated in the compilation report), preparation of summary of key issues, coverage of the actual review and preparation of feedback reports, lobbying of national authorities for acceptation of recommendations, coverage of the adoption session (final report), and follow-up on relevant recommendations. Initial phases are critical as they may have a major impact on the following steps.

The purpose of this specific webinar is to scale up engagement with the UPR mechanism by colleagues covering countries scheduled for review during the UPR session, as this can contribute to enhance the protection of persons of concern to UNHCR.

Objectives The planned webinar would contribute more specifically to the following outcomes: -

Effective and timely preparation of UNHCR’s submissions to the UPR ;

-

Identification of the most relevant issues to be raised in the framework of the UPR;

-

Preparation of quality submissions increasing the chances of having recommendations

made on persons of concern or issues relevant to UNHCR retained and accepted; -

Informed participation in the preparatory phase of the UPR session, which involves a

wide range of activities be it at the national and at the HQ’s level; -

Clear understanding of the various steps that an effective engagement with the UPR

involves; -

Writing an effective Resettlement Registration Form (RFF) An RRF is the most important document in the resettlement procedure. It is the document that forms the basis for a UNHCR resettlement referral. It contains not only biodata in respect of the Principal Applicant and each of the family members referred for resettlement by UNHCR, but also the flight history and the resettlement needs of the refugee, which is vital information for resettlement countries to make decisions. Therefore it is very important that the RRF is completed in accordance with UNHCR global standards, and in an accurate and effective manner.

Webinar for Blended Learning Using the Universal Periodic Review to enhance the protection of persons of concern to UNHCR The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process, which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States. UNHCR’s engagement with the UPR requires a wide range of initiatives before, during and after the actual review of a country by the HRC. This engagement includes preparation of UNHCR contributions (incorporated in the compilation report), preparation of summary of key issues, coverage of the actual review and preparation of feedback reports, lobbying of national authorities for acceptation of recommendations, coverage of the adoption session (final report), and follow-up on relevant recommendations. Initial phases are critical as they may have a major impact on the following steps.

The purpose of this specific webinar is to scale up engagement with the UPR mechanism by colleagues covering countries scheduled for review during the UPR session, as this can contribute to enhance the protection of persons of concern to UNHCR.

Best Interest Determination of the Child (BID) The principle of the best interests of the child has been the subject of extensive consideration in academic, operational and other circles. Legal documents relating to the protection of children, including those adopted by UNHCR’s Executive Committee on children of concern to the Office, systematically refer to it.

How to apply this principle in practice, however, often remains challenging for UNHCR and its

60


partners. Limited guidance is available on how to operationalize the best interests principle. The UNHCR Guidelines on Determining the Best Interest of a Child are intended as one step to help fill this gap.

Objectives To further strengthen staff capacity to perform qualitative and timely Best Interest Determination (BID) for children at risk as a joint effort between UNHCR and partners and in line with minimum standards and procedures as set out in the BID Guidelines. Upon completion of this course the learner will be able to: â—?

Demonstrate knowledge of the concept, objectives and principles of BID;

â—?

Understand the legal framework of BID and use BID as part of a comprehensive child protection system including: - Identify children who require BID; - Establish minimum standard procedures for BID implementation; - Reaching quality decisions through balancing facts and the rights of children; - Monitor and evaluate the BID process; - Emphasize BID as a Child Protection mechanism, part of a larger Child Protection

Workshop for Blended Learning Resettlement Learning Programme (RLP) The Resettlement Learning Programme (RLP) has grown out of the successful experience of the joint RSD and Resettlement Learning Programme. This programme was developed in order to ensure a more in-depth focus on resettlement. Considering the significant progress that has been made in the past five years, when more than 330,000 refugees were resettled, resettlement continues to play a vital role in protecting individual refugees at risk, including in response to emergency refugee situations. In addition, resettlement also has a role in sharing responsibilities with refugees hosting governments and the strategic search of solutions, in particular for protracted refugee situations. As a result, UNHCR continues to strengthen its resettlement activities and operations. In this vein, the RLP aims to contribute to a more coherent and predictable resettlement delivery that addresses refugees’ protection needs with diligence, integrity, transparency and accountability. Structure and Methodology of the Programme The RLP is a six-month thematic programme that complements the Protection Learning Programme by offering distance self-study, coached and web-based modules and a workshop that deals specifically with resettlement.

Workshop on Conflict Analysis & Coexistence Peacebuilding involves a range of measures targeted to reduce the risk of lapsing or relapsing into conflict by strengthening national capacities at all levels for conflict management, and to lay the foundations for sustainable peace and development. Logically, these measures are of critical importance to UNHCR’s mandate of providing international protection to its persons of concern and to seek durable solutions for them. There is an increasing international recognition of the need for more sustainable approaches to peacebuilding, which among others has led to the new UN peacebuilding architecture and a Secretary General report on peacebuilding in the immediate aftermath of conflict. UNHCR at a global level has recently reviewed its work which contributes directly or indirectly to peace and stability with a view to further strengthen and target interventions within a more conceptualized peacebuilding framework. A global workshop on peacebuilding was held in Geneva in October 2010, where priority operations as well as core thematic areas of peacebuilding work were identified. This workshop builds on the outcomes of the global workshop and intends to support operations which have identified peacebuilding/coexistence projects and build capacity for implementation. The workshop aims to enhance staff and partner capacity in the development and implementation of peacebuilding/coexistence projects, including in: the concept of peacebuilding in UNHCR operations; Conflict and Context Analysis, Gender and Peacebuilding; a Community and Area Based Approach to Peacebuilding; Peacebuilding/ Coexistence Project design and implementation.

Objectives After completing this workshop the participant will be able to: ●

Explain the concept of peacebuilding, what it entails and UNHCR s role and responsibility in a regional/ cross border context

Use conflict analysis to assess risks (of parties to the conflict relapsing into conflict affecting persons of concern) and measures to mitigate those risks

Understand and factor gender into peacebuilding activities Transform identified measures into concrete peacebuilding/ coexistance initiatives

Understand and apply a community and area based approach to implementing peacebuilding activities

We will explore the principal lessons learnt from the attacks in Atambua and Macenta in September, 2000. We will also look at UNHCR’s security policy, and discuss what is meant by “strengthening a culture of security”. Some common humanitarian security approaches, such as the ICRC Seven Pillars of Security model and the security triangle approach, will be explored together with the concept of Due Diligence. A major component of the course is the concept of Risk Assessment, including the meaning and relationship among the following activities: - Threat assessment - Vulnerability

Emergency Team Leadership Programme (ETLP) The IASC ETLP aims to strengthen emergency team leadership competencies of IASC partners in humanitarian emergency settings.

The ETLP focuses on “team leadership” and

“interpersonal” skills in emergency situations, i.e. teamwork, communication, decision-making, emotional intelligence, direction setting and situational leadership, rather than on the more technical or operational skills required in emergencies (e.g. emergency management, operations, sector response planning, staff security, etc.) as these are already covered by other existing training courses. In addition to reinforcing core leadership competencies, the workshop is a retreat designed to spark reflection and growth of participants’ own attitudes and practices as emergency team leaders. The ETLP is carried out in three phases: a period of self-study and self-assessment (one month), a four and a half-day workshop and a post-workshop project (six months). The IASC ETLP aims to strengthen emergency team leadership competencies of IASC partners

Issues occurring during or soon after an installation are generally caused by some form of restriction, such as permission or policy constraints; an incompatible program

317


configuration setting; or the inability of the installation program to access needed resources. Failures can often be resolved by changing a program configuration setting that is not supported. Software and programs that were compatible with Windows Vista, will most likely run properly on Windows 7, but it is highly recommended to analyze application compatibility moving from Windows XP to Windows 7. A number of tools are provided to test, resolve, or work around program compatibility issues. This course outlines the most common Windows 7 features that can restrict software installation, which is sometimes intentional in enterprise environments as with the use of UAC and AppLocker. The Application Compatibility Toolkit is provided to test whether programs will function in Windows 7. Also discussed are tools used to resolve compatibility issues including the Program Compatibility Assistant, Program Compatibility Troubleshooter, and program Compatibility tab settings. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft exam: 70-685 Pro: Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician. Passing this exam will earn the learner Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician certification.

Excel also provides a number of ways in which you can apply calculations to the data in PivotTables in the form of summary functions and custom calculations. All of these useful features of Excel 2010 are introduced and described in this course.

VMware vSphere 5 - Part 1 One of the biggest developments in IT infrastructure management is the emergence of server virtualization. Virtualization is well suited for most business applications and is widely in use for all but the most demanding workloads. Virtualization brings many economic advantages. It allows an organization to run multiple operating systems, called virtual machines, simultaneously on a single physical machine. The ability to consolidate multiple machines

367


allows the IT department to reduce its hardware and software costs, as well as significantly reducing its operational costs. Virtualization isn't limited to simply creating virtual machines. Other infrastructure components, such as networking and storage, can also be virtualized, hiding the complexities of the underlying networking and storage components from the virtual machines. Once virtualized, the physical resources such as processor power, network switches and SAN resources can be aggregated and combined together for use by virtual machines, resulting in better utilization of physical resources, load balancing, and fault tolerance/redundancy. vSphere 5 is a virtualization software suite that can create virtual counterparts which correspond to, or replace, the physical components of a datacenter.

This curriculum is the first part of a series of VMware vSphere 5 courses.
