The TRANSFORM Shock-Responsive Social Protection (SRSP) face-to-face module was innitially developed as a face-to-face training, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the module was adapted and launched as an e-course. The pilot will run from 15 February to 22 March 2021. This course is an inter-agency initiative by ILO, UNICEF and WFP, and is funded by UK Aid as well as Irish Aid and the Government of Sweden through the UN Joint Programme on Social Protection II in Zambia. TRANSFORM is primarily designed for social protection practitioners, but the SRSP e-Course specifically targets actors from across the social protection and emergency sectors.
The course consists of 5 modules, namely:
- Module 1: An Introduction to SRSP,
- Module 2: The TRANSFORM SRSP Framework,
- Module 3: How context influences our involvement strategy,
- Module 4: System strengthening – preparedness and planning for uncertainty,
- Module 5: Key steps to strengthen and build SRSP.
Each module is made up of a variety of learning experiences consisting of interactive slides and video for content acquisition, individual and group activities for content application, forums, suggested reading material, and assignment submissions + quizzes to assess the understanding of the content.
