You are key to the successful development, implementation and management of MSFs social mission. We would like you to meet the requirements of your role whilst continuing to develop your skillset and expertise. The primary responsibility for learning and development lies with each staff member, so with you, with the secondary support and motivation of your line manager. In order to meet the challenges the OCA Strategic Plan shows, we will expand our offer throughout 2016. We will focus on other forms of learning like coaching and mentoring with the aim to improve your knowledge, behaviour and skills, while still offering training courses as well. The coming years, OCA has special attention for unlocking and using the potential of our national staff. This requires an important role for management in both headquarters and field in supporting and developing our field staff. For MSF to operate as a modern, knowledge based organization, you need to work with and through others to succeed. This networking where you contribute to and draw value from the work of your peers by sharing resources, collaboration, feedback, advice and innovations, is key to realize the ambition of the OCA Strategic Plan. This means that you should not only be able to apply what youve learned and experienced to existing work activities, but also be able to apply your competencies and skills to new and unfamiliar situations. This is why we will shift from a single instruction-driven training event, to more continuous learning and giving you tools from which you can take your own learning. With the offer in this L&D brochure we hope to give you the opportunity to sharpen your knowledge and skills, give you a moment for reflection, refresh and energize yourself, make new connections and inspire others in your environment.

The following format is used to list practical information about the courses: Start & End Date Location Language Working Back Period Application of learning With optimal preparation, engaging delivery and recurring evaluation of our courses, we strive to make the learning experience for you as effective as possible. Learning, however, is a process, and it doesnt start or stop just at the course event. The Learning & Development department considers that continuous learning is a key element to effectively improve the competencies which have been addressed during a training course and therefore stresses the importance of the application of learning. Application of learning is defined by when participants subsequently use the knowledge, skills and attitude acquired during a course in their daily work. The application of learning is achieved in various activities and methods commonly referred as training follow-up. The responsibility for the application of learning is shared between you, as the course participant, and your supervisors. It is the responsibility of the learner (you) to apply what you have learned during the course in your daily work and to complete the follow-up activities which have been identified during the course. It is the responsibility of your supervisor to facilitate and support you during the process. Both you and your supervisor need to agree to the responsibilities towards the application of learning prior to submitting a course application. A certificate of attendance will be issued after completion of a MSF-OCA course. Working Back Period For most courses, we have a working back period in place: a period that you agree to keep working for MSF OCA after completing the course. This way we invest in our staff and you show your commitment to the organization. For each course, the working back period is listed on the course sheet. Course Application You can apply for courses in this brochure using the application process as explained on page 87. Here, you will also find the application form and templates for your motivation letter and the recommendation letter. In some cases, someone else than your line manager needs to provide the recommendation letter; if so, this is stated clearly on the course sheet. You should send the application form and both letters to the L&D Officer (developmentofficer@ amsterdam.msf.org) at least two months before the course start date, unless otherwise stated on the course sheet.

Mar 7-18 Egmond, the Netherlands English 12 months Page76 OCA Learning & Development MSc Humanitarian Health Program Management Accreditation of prior learning This HHPM Master Program is offered through the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM). The HHPM master builds on experience and international expertise in providing high-quality professional training in humanitarian action in the health arena. The HHPM master is intended for the full range of professionals working in humanitarian health program management. The program investigates current approaches to humanitarian health program management and identifies and develops models of good practice. Opportunities for in-depth study include regional and country case studies and a choice of modules addressing specific aspects of humanitarian interventions. In addition, the program offers participants an opportunity to develop and undertake a research project, usually overseas, in an area of special interest indicated by client Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), International Organizations (IOs) or National Ministries. More information: http://www.lstmed.ac.uk/study/courses/humanitarian-health-programme-management-0 There is collaboration between the LSTM and MSF OCA. We have identified two career development pathways, framed around the HHPM master in conjunction with designated MSF-OCA courses: MedCo Pathway, including MSF MMC HoM Pathway, including MSF SMT MSF staff who undertake one of these two designated MSF courses and successfully complete an additional LSTM-approved assessment can apply for entry onto the MHHP master with accreditation of prior learning (APL) of 10 of the 180 credits required to complete the program. LSTM will also consider APL of a further 30 credits in relation to practical fieldwork undertaken by MSF staff subject to submission of satisfactory evidence to demonstrate that the relevant learning outcomes of the HHPM master have been met. Applicants must also satisfy LSTM academic and English language entry requirements as specified on their website. Collaboration between LSTM and MSF-OCA is in development and therefore people who are interested in the HHPM master and are planning to follow or followed the SMT and MMC training in the past and would like to receive information on accreditation of prior learning (APL) by LSTM, can contact the OCA L&D department in Amsterdam.

Youre open to learning and change, able to reflect and committed to your professional development. You believe that coaching, an experiential process during which a coach seeks to unlock your potential to maximise your own performance, is the appropriate L&D method to meet your development needs. COACHING In consultation with your line manager and with the support of a professional certified coach you will formulate the objective for the coaching intervention: a competency you need to develop that is relevant in your role. Potential topics can be effective communication and collaboration, personal effectiveness and efficiency, and leadership. You will develop that competency during coaching sessions conducted through skype, email and online tools and are expected to pro-actively follow up on assignments and contact moments. The content of your coaching sessions remains confidential between you and your coach. Halfway through the Coaching intervention you will discuss your progress with your line manager, as well as with your coach. At the end of the intervention, in consultation with your line manager and coach, you take stock of your learning and behaviour change, and whether you've met the objective of your coaching. INTERESTED? If you are a field coordinator, either new to the job or experienced, you can apply during your mission by: Filling out the L&D application form Writing a letter of motivation in which you explain why coaching is the appropriate method to meet your learning need Requesting a letter of recommendation from your line manager SELECTION PROCESS Depending on the total amount of requests (budget available) the selection is on an individual basis. Selection will be done based on your proven commitment to development in general and motivation for coaching in particular. If selected, you are asked to sign a study agreement: there is a working back period of 6 months as of the start of the coaching intervention. Page85 OCA Learning & Development Mentoring A brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction YOUR PROFILE You are a member of a Country Management Team and in need of competencies necessary for your role, related to a specific context, that you cannot (timely) acquire through training. Youre open to on-the-job-learning and change, consider constructive feedback as an opportunity to develop yourself, and eager to pro-actively seek and evaluate learning opportunities. Youre eager to engage at location in a professional relationship with someone senior in your role who is dedicated to share their expertise and focussed on successfully transferring their knowledge, skills and attitudes to you. You are, in short, looking for mentoring: a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction. MENTORING Youll discuss your mentoring need with your line manager. Once mentoring has been granted, the mentoring desk* will select your mentor and make an assessment of the length of the intervention (2 weeks minimum); the period of which the mentor joins you at location (possibly followed by distance mentoring). With your mentor, you will make a thorough assessment of your learning needs and sign an agreement that safeguards the objective and confidentiality of the mentoring relationship. You will schedule sessions with your mentor during which you discuss work-related issues, competencies required to solve them, actions to develop them, as well as follow-up of previous actions. At the end of the mentoring intervention, your mentor and you assess the results. Using this assessment, you will discuss next steps in your development with your mentoring desk. ROLE OF L&D DEPARTMENT Your mentoring intervention, if granted, will be owned and paid for by your mission and/or relevant department.

If selected, you are asked to sign a study agreement: there is a working back period of 6 months as of the start of the mentoring intervention. * The mentoring desk consists of a technical referent, an HR member and others involved in review of your application. Page87 OCA Learning & Development Applications Page88 OCA Learning & Development Course Application Process The application process is a 3-step process. Step 1: Application For National Staff: For personal advice on your career and training possibilities and interest you can contact your direct line manager. If you want to apply for a course, inform your line manager, who will discuss with the project coordinator or when in capital with the relevant functional coordinator (FinCo, LogCo, Medco, HRCo). After initial approval in the line the following documents need to be sent to the HRCo. A. Application form B. Motivation letter C. Recommendation letter from your coordinator (or otherwise specified) The mission will then ensure that the relevant applications for the course are presented to the L&D Officer. For International Staff: For personal advice on your professional development possibilities and interest you can contact your HRO. If you want to apply for a course, inform your HRO and line manager and send the following documents to the L&D Officer: A. Application form B. Motivation letter C. Recommendation letter from your coordinator or your functional manager at the CMT level (or otherwise specified on the course sheet) Step 2: Deadlines For National Staff: The deadline to send your application is two and an half months before the start of a course, unless otherwise specified on the course sheet. (This is to allow for an often lengthier visa application process for national staff traveling to a course.) For International Staff: The deadline to send your application is two months before the start of a course, unless otherwise specified on the course sheet. For International and National Staff: The participant selection takes place 6 weeks before the start of a course. In case of an exception this is mentioned per course. Applications that are received too late will not be included in the selection procedure. You should re-apply for the next training. Please be aware that in general there are a lot more applications than available positions on a course. Page89 OCA Learning & Development Step 3: Selection Procedure The selection procedure is facilitated by the L&D Officer and selection decisions are made by relevant Pool Manager in conjunction with the relevant (support) department. The outcome of this selection can be twofold: you are accepted, or you are not accepted. In the selection of participants, the primary consideration is the need of the mission and/or the organization. The development of an individual is secondary in this process. The L&D Officer will notify you of the result of the selection. If you are not accepted: L&D and all involved spend a considerable amount of time on the selection process in which all perspectives are measured against each other. Reasons why you are not selected can be: You might not fit the criteria for the course (yet). You might fit the criteria for the course, but because of limited places on the course you are not selected. In your mission there might already be a number of expats or national staff with these qualifications while on the mission of other applicants this is lacking. If you are not accepted but you meet the basic entrance criteria for the course, you will be encouraged to apply again in the future. The outcome will not be discussed and should be accepted. To re-apply again for the same course in the future, you will have to enter the procedure again from the start. This is because L&D cannot know if you will still be with MSF at the time of the new course or if the priorities (in the mission) have changed. L&D does not keep applications. If you are (in rare cases) on a waiting list, you will be notified and informed again as soon as a place is available to you. Page90 OCA Learning & Development Study Grant Application Process MSF-OCA offers the possibility of a study grant for those who would like to further their career development through shorter or longer courses or studies in relation with their commitment to work for MSF OCA. Who Can Apply for a Study Grant? Staff that is interested in participating in a shorter or longer term course or studies related to the medical humanitarian mission of MSF in the field, currently not part of the curriculum in this course brochure, can apply. They can submit a request for a contribution to the fee. Please note that there are limited funds available, therefore grants are scarcely granted. Conditions of the Study Grant You have to be ready to go to the field within due time after completing your course or study. Required Documents to Apply for a Study Grant Submit the following to developmentofficer@amsterdam.msf.org: A completed MSF course application form Your current CV A letter of recommendation from your most recent Head of Mission or Operational Manager Your motivation letter. Please include the following information: Full title of the course Dates for the course Location of the course Amount you are applying for Please mention the curriculum of the course Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered. Study Grant Recommendation Letter The recommendation letter has to come from either an Operational Manager or the Head of Mission of your (most recent) mission. It should clearly state in what capacity the Head of Mission (or OM) believes the course or study will benefit you in regards to your (future) work with MSF. The recommendation should also provide an account of your performance on the job, personal experience of working with you, and any other information that the Head of Mission or OM deems relevant. Study Grant Motivation Letter In this letter you clearly state what your future plans and commitment are in regards to MSF OCA, your specific goals and plans, and how you think the course would be beneficial to your (future) MSF OCA job and how it contributes in your development. Page91 OCA Learning & Development Study Grant Selection Process Throughout the year, you can submit an application for a study grant. A selection will take place on which study grant application will be agreed upon and for which amount we will contribute to the requested course fee. The relevant pool manager will be asked to provide an advice to the L&D HoD taking into account previous evaluations, and input from HRO and Support department. An important consideration is if the course fits into your professional development and future positions within MSF OCA. Other factors that will be taken into account are future commitment, and development history with MSF-OCA, and already existing work back obligations in your file. Priority will be given to Public Health Masters (over other masters). Once all of the above information and recommendations are compiled and analysed, the L&D HoD makes a decision. The L&D Officer will communicate this decision to the applicant and will draw up a study agreement if the grant has been agreed to. This agreement will need to be signed by the recipient of the grant. We strive to give an answer to your request within 6 weeks of submitting all required documents to the L&D Officer.

Page96 OCA Learning & Development You Have Been Selected: What Happens Next? Your application was successful you have been selected! See below for an overview of the next steps. Step 1: When Accepted to a Course: Confirm your Participation! ALWAYS confirm your participation! You will receive an invitation to the course and more information from the L&D Officer. You may have to fill in some forms, for example for visa and insurance, and return them as soon as possible. Step 2: Visa & Insurance If you need a visa to attend the course, you are responsible for arranging your visa if needed with the assistance of your HRCo; this might take up to 6 weeks. For Visa application purposes, the organizing section will provide the letter of invitation (LOI) for participants from all sections. When a course takes place in the Netherlands, a format for a letter of invitation (LOI) is included in the course invitation and needs to be completed and returned to the L&D Officer as soon as possible. The signed letter will be returned to you by the L&D Officer. This applies to participants from all OCs, whom need a visa to be able to attend the course. When a course is taking place in another country than the Netherlands, the host country will take care of the Letter of Invitation. If you need proof of insurance for your visa, there is also a BTA form attached to the course invitation. In order to obtain an insurance certificate, this form like the LOI needs to be completed and returned to the L&D Officer. The L&D Officer will send the BTA form to the insurance company and once he gets the insurance certificate back (within 2 work days), it will be returned to you. This applies to OCA staff only, regardless of what the course location is. Participants from other sections are kindly referred to their respective OC to take care of the insurance certificate. Should you also require proof of accommodation, the organizing section should provide this. Insurance for OCA staff during the course will be taken care of by MSF-OCA (health, luggage and liability). If you have questions about your insurance please contact the L&D Officer. Participants from other OCs are kindly referred to their respective OC which will take care of the insurance. Step 3: Travel Arrangements International travel expenses are paid for by the project country or by L&D if the participant is not on a field contract. Local travel expenses, i.e. expenses incurred in the country where the course is hosted, are refunded by either L&D or your mission. Please check with your HRCo. Page97 OCA Learning & Development International travel and accommodation before and after the course will need to be arranged by the project. Your HRCo will arrange your travel and accommodation arrangements with Raptim (msftravel.nl@raptim.org). If you are in between missions you are responsible to arrange your travel yourself. You can arrange it by contacting Raptim directly. Before finalizing your booking, Raptim will require a cost center and reason code, which you can obtain through the L&D Officer. Raptim will invoice Amsterdam HQ for your booking. Travel schedules should be sent to the L&D Officer. Step 4: Boarding and Lodging In principle all MSF courses are residential and therefore boarding and lodging are taken care of during the course period. You will receive a per diem if the catering is not included. Boarding and lodging during the course are paid for by L&D in the case of international courses. For travel days before and/or after a course, the project is responsible and needs to arrange for both the lodging costs and per diem for the participant. Step 5: Per Diem and Security Money In case no meals are provided during a course, participants will receive a per diem from the organizing section for the actual course days only. For international courses in Europe this is set at 17 per day. National Staff will receive an additional 5 more. (This means they will receive 5 per day when catering is provided and 22 when no catering is provided). Courses provided in-country or courses provided in countries where MSF missions are present, follow the local per diem policy. The project should provide per diem for the travel days before and after the course to the participant. The project should provide security money for all participants, especially national staff travelling (to Europe) for the first time. Questions Do not hesitate to contact the L&D Officer through developmentofficer@amsterdam.msf.org or by phone +31 (0)20 520 8970 if you have questions. mailto:msftravel.nl@raptim.orgmailto:developmentofficer@amsterdam.msf.org Page98 OCA Learning & Development Page99 OCA Learning & Development Information for HRCos Page100 OCA Learning & Development Requesting On Demand Courses FMC1, FMC 2, TOT & SANOU Each year, during the Autumn Control Planning (ACP) process, the L&D Department asks all the missions what their needs are in terms of FMC, TOT and SANOU. This enables L&D to do the on-demand course planning for the following year taking into account the fields priorities and the available resources in the department. If your mission has identified a need for an on-demand course which hasnt been submitted during the ACP process, please contact the L&D Officer at developmentofficer@amsterdam.msf.org. You will be asked to fill an on-demand course request form and your needs will be discussed with the Field Training Advisor. The granting of the request will depend on the learning needs identified by the mission and the L&D capacity. You can find the on-demand course request form on the field website. It is the responsibility of the HRCo to ensure that the course is not scheduled during a local holiday or other event that will impact the training. If an on-demand course is scheduled during a local holiday or other event, we reserve the right to cancel the course. ALSO These medical field trainings can be requested directly with the Public Health department, Debbie Price. ETAT & HBB These medical field trainings can be requested directly with the Public Health department, Harriet Roggeveen. Field ICHA This Humanitarian Affairs field training can be requested directly with HAD. Basic ICT Officer training This on-the-job ICT training can be requested directly with your Field ICT Advisor/FSU Advisor. SANOU In addition to the information on the course sheet, the information below will provide more information on the setup and delivery of the first SANOU, including the SANOU ToST. Training of SANOU Trainers (ToST) 3 days: The mission needs to select 12 SANOU facilitators to participate in the ToST. Those facilitators will be trained by the HQ trainers in the delivery of the SANOU. They will be responsible to deliver the SANOU training to their colleagues in the future. It is key for the success of the multiplication that the 12 facilitators will be released from their daily function and made available to deliver the SANOU to their colleagues in the future. This needs to be clear with their current supervisors and also communicated clearly to their future supervisors in the event of international staff turnover. mailto:developmentofficer@amsterdam.msf.orgPage101 OCA Learning & Development SANOU 2 days: Following the ToST, the (ToST) facilitators will deliver the SANOU to their colleagues. The mission needs to select 20 participants to attend this first SANOU. The 20 participants will be additional to the 12 SANOU facilitators. Application of Learning: A key element in the effectiveness of the SANOU is its multiplication within the mission. By requesting the SANOU, the mission agrees to multiply the course within its staff to create as many MSF Ambassadors as possible. The mission will need to present a multiplication plan upon request of the SANOU. The HRCo will monitor the multiplication of the SANOU training and will report to the L&D department every 6 months. The selection process for the SANOU is mission-specific and should be done at mission level. Field Management Course (Level 1 & 2) The duration of the FMC 1 is 6 days. The duration of the FMC 2 is 6 to 8 days, depending on the optional modules selected. The FMC 1 & 2 can host a maximum of 20 participants. The application and selection process for the field based FMC1 and FMC2 are mission-specific. They should be defined and performed at mission level. For the regional FMC2, the selection process first needs to happen at mission level. The HRCo has the responsibility to send to the L&D Officer the applications which have received the support from the mission. The Field Training Advisor will make the final selection for the regional course. The result will be communicated by the L&D Officer. Application of Learning: Each FMC participant commits to complete the home assignments within three months after the course. The line manager of each FMC participant commits to supporting and facilitating the application of learning. The HRCo will monitor which participants have fulfilled their commitment after three months and will inform the L&D department. Training of Trainers (TOT) The duration of the TOT is 5 days. The TOT can host a maximum of 12 participants. The application and selection process for the field based TOT are mission-specific. They should be defined and performed at mission level. For the regional TOT, the selection process first needs to happen at mission level. The HRCo has the responsibility to send to the L&D Officer the applications which have received the support from the mission. The Field Training Advisor will make the final selection for the regional course. The result will be communicated by the L&D Officer. Application of Learning: Each TOT participant commits to developing, delivering and evaluating individually at least one training course within three months after the TOT. The line manager of each TOT participant commits to supporting and facilitating the application of learning. The HRCo will monitor which participants have fulfilled their commitment after three months and will inform the L&D department about the process.
