DFID – Talent Developement Project Final Evaluation

Key Aid Consulting supported Save the Children with the final evaluation of the Talent Development Project (TDP).

TDP is a 3-year capacity-strengthening project, part of the Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP), that aimed to build the capacity of national humanitarian aid workers in Bangladesh, DRC, Ethiopia, Jordan and Kenya. It is run by a consortium of four NGOs – Save the Children UK (SCUK), Oxfam GB, Relief International and the CHS Alliance – and is funded by DFID and the Start Network. The project incorporates three pre-existing learning and development courses: The Humanitarian Training Scheme: an entry-level course; The Context Programme: a mid-level course; and Leadership for Humanitarians Training: a senior-level course.

Additionally, the Core Humanitarian Standard Alliance (CHS Alliance) provided two components that underpin the work of the three training courses through: 1) Coaching Network of 115 coaches; 2) Review of the Core Competency Framework (CCHF). The evaluation looked at the effect, relevance and sustainability of the programme along with the chosen operational model and the achieved value for money. To grasp all the TDP stakeholders perspective, we conducted secondary and primary data collection with trainees in Jordan, Kenya, Bangladesh, DRC and Ethiopia, their colleagues and line managers, the programme’s facilitators and coaches along with project managers.
