HomeEducation and trainingShort coursesCrisis Leadership Program

The Crisis Leadership Program (CLP) offers hands-on short courses with flexible delivery models to meet the needs of first responders working in crisis response and recovery.

Participants will gain insights to better understand and navigate the disaster response system, as well as build their own leadership skills.

The CLP’s first iteration is designed for people actively working on the Ukrainian crisis response, and involves a eight-week blended learning programme of online study, live sessions, and an in-person intensive.

Eligibility, fees, and application requirements

The first CLP course is designed for participants with between three months and three years’ experience working in conflict, disaster, and crisis settings. The course, starting in October 2022, is free for most people who are actively working on the Ukrainian crisis response and meet the work experience requirements. Staff members of international organisations may be asked to make a contribution to cover costs.

Applications are being accepted online and will close on October 11, 2022.
