Diploma in Education in Emergencies

Course Overview

Conflicts, disasters caused by natural hazards and pandemics keep millions of children out of school and the numbers are rising. In crisis-affected countries, school-age children are more than twice as likely to be out of school as their peers in other countries.

Education is a critical component of emergency response. Children need continuous access to quality education opportunities to stay safe and learn effectively. It is essential that those responding to crises have the knowledge and technical expertise to appropriately plan for and implement education in emergencies interventions. To contribute to building this capacity we are offering training on.
