Participants of our first baseline survey training course in Tbilisi (Georgia) show their certificates.

Tap your team’s full potential with Banyaneer. We now offer five training courses that can be booked as team packages. As such, they are an investment into even stronger and capable teams. Aside from adding skills for resilience programming, the courses bring direct benefits to your project. For instance, our monitoring skills course covers not only key principles and techniques in monitoring, but also leads to the development of a monitoring & evaluation plan for your project.

The baseline survey training addresses a common gap that we have identified in many evaluations: the  insufficient rigor of baselines that makes a comparison with end lines (and thus impact attribution) difficult. The course can be best arranged ahead of a planned baseline survey. Team members are trained as survey supervisors, who then pass on their new knowledge to enumerators. We usually prepare sampling and questionnaire design ahead of the course. Data collection is then in the hands of your team, and Banyaneer can provide the data analysis. As a recent course in Georgia has shown, the two benefits are less dependency on external consultants, better data quality, and lower cost (since you do not have to outsource every data collection to consultants).

Resilience in practice is a course that aims to translate the broad recognition of the resilience concept into practice: we start off with three distinct perspectives of resilience and look at programming implications (team composition, scope, cross-cutting issues, level of flexibility, participatory engagement). The course also gives guidance on how to use and adapt the resilience radar.

Behaviour change is key to most development projects – but are your projects convincing people to change, or do they just “tell” people what to do? The course introduces behaviour change and behaviour communication (BCC), offers a barrier analysis for your project, and concludes with the development of an effective strategy.

Our fifth course concerns exit strategies: it is ideal for teams whose projects are at least 12 months away from conclusion. The course offers strategic skills and leads to the development of a concise exit strategy – thus enhancing the sustainability of your project outcomes.
