Module 3 DUE: 21 November 2016

The Education Cluster’s Core Skills Course requires that all participants have a basic level of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills related to coordination prior to arriving.

We have therefore prepared FOUR modules with accompanying assignments to be completed and submitted according to the specified due dates.

Each module will contain a theory-based assignment as well as a practical, Information Management (IM)-based assignment. 

To qualify to attend the face-to-face portion of this course, you must complete and submit all assignments in Modules 1-4 on time.

All assignments and assignment-related questions should be sent to the Education Cluster at [email protected].
