Objective :

This four day Training is a one-off event for the Asia and Pacific Region. It also includes a high level panel discussion with practicioners from key agencies engaged in social protection in the region.

It is designed in response to the need to bring together concepts of social protection and apply them in the contexts of poverty, risk, and vulnerability. The main objective of the training is:

To equip participants with relevant knowledge, understanding and skills to engage in national and international social protection programmes and policy processes.

To achieve this objective the course will:

  • Examine a  spectrum of related issues from: interventions at the community level; to national strategies; through to international mechanisms for implementation;
  • Draw on participants own knowledge and experience.



An intensive four day course for twenty participants from a range of contexts with different learning styles, knowledge and experience in social protection requires the use of a number of different teaching methods. Methods we use will be based upon ‘active learning’ which moves beyond ‘passive learning’ to find the most effective techniques to include participants in their own learning process. The course staff will support participants learning by:

  • introducing concepts, ideas, thinking, theories and practice;
  • drawing out and building on participants’ thoughts and experiences;
  • facilitating plenary discussion;
  • discussing exercises and case studies
  • creating an environment of honesty and confidentiality that is open and inclusive.

Course facilitators will be responsible for the finalisation of timetable and overall facilitation of the delivery of the course.
