COVID-19 led many organisations to experiment with new methods of learning delivery. Now that the pandemic has eased, what are the considerations when choosing a learning format?

Completed in January 2023, this short document is the first in a series of quick guides produced by the Training Providers Forum (TPF). It is a bite-size exploration of a number of training delivery methods, which aims to help organisations choose which approaches are most suited to their aims. In order to do this, it provides a set of considerations for this decision-making process, as well as six brief case studies. The guide emphasises humanitatian work, which reflects the activities of the TPF member organisations. However, the contents are also applicable to development and other contexts.

The Training Providers Forum comprises ten organisations which meet regularly to improve training in the international aid sector, share best practice, and advocate in favour of training. The members are Bioforce, Bond, CHS Alliance, DisasterReady, Groupe URD, Humanitarian Leadership Academy, Humentum, IECAH, INTRAC, and RedR.
