OBF Academy -Case HPass

  1. 1. Using Digital Badging to Recognise Humanitarian Skills & Experience
  2. 2. 1 HPass is a new platform dedicated to humanitarian professional development, promoting • Quality • Consistency, and • Transparency In the way that humanitarians are trained, assessed and recognised for their achievements. Supporting and Strengthening Humanitarians Everywhere
  3. 3. 2 Humanitarians are time-poor and the nature of their work means that learning is often through practical experience as well as formal courses & assessments Recruitment & deployment processes conducted at speed require HR & roster managers to be able to make important decisions quickly about each candidate’s suitability Learning on-the-job Rapid deployment HPass promotes a system of recognising humanitarians’ skills and experience, reflecting challenges specific to the humanitarian sector… Movement Humanitarians move frequently between locations and organisations, and need evidence of their skills and experience which is recognisable and verifiable across borders
  4. 4. 3 We estimate there are over ~16MM volunteers and ~1.25MM workers involved in humanitarian action globally. Humanitarian Action includes development and humanitarian aid. Humanitarian aid is emergency response and disaster relief only. Note: Numbers as of 2016. 1. Excludes HQ staff and other paid staff not on the frontlines/ field. 2. Assumes humanitarian aid is ~1/3 of all global aid going towards humanitarian action. Informed by ELRHA which estimates around 35% of all aid workers are humanitarian aid workers. 3. Cumulative number of learners reached since 2010. 4. Both estimates since 2010. “Learners” includes those being assessed. 5. Exact estimate closer to 3.8MM volunteers. Estimated from the 61 National Societies which launched a disaster response emergency relief operation or emergency appeal during 2016.

  5. 5. 4 Humanitarian OrganisationsHumanitarians “I want to plan my development, ensure I’m investing in quality learning, and network with potential employers” Workers or volunteers in humanitarian action including development, peace building, and emergency relief operations HPass services target humanitarians, and the organisations that must prepare them for response “I want to find and develop individuals to enable better humanitarian action.” Recruiters or line managers responsible for identifying needed skill-sets and sourcing required talent.
