Humanitarian Learning Standards

What are the learning standards?

The Humanitarian Learning Standards aim to improve the quality of learning for people involved in humanitarian action, and so allow them to be more effective in helping communities who are vulnerable to or affected by crises.

The standards provide criteria to measure the quality of learning for people involved in humanitarian action. You, the learning provider, can use them as a basis for checking your performance and to guide improvements.

Who are these standards for?

These standards are for organisations, companies, departments and institutes who provide learning services to anyone involved in humanitarian action in whatever capacity.
