This programme is ideal for practitioners working within a disaster, crisis and humanitarian field within military, ambulance service trusts, fire and rescue and NGO’s.

Develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to deliver interventions or lead in disaster, humanitarian and crisis settings. Broaden and deepen your perception of your role in such circumstances, including your management and resilience principles, shaping your ability to contribute more effectively to doctrine and policy developments that will ultimately improve yours and your team’s practise. By critically evaluating the evidence, your own personal experience and that of others, you will be able to apply credible, timely solutions to compound problems in response to natural or man-made incidents wherever they occur.
