What is the course format?

The 14-week online training course phase consists of live classroom lessons with your fellow participants, led by CARE’s CVCA experts and blended with other learning resources, such as videos, quizzes, podcasts, key readings and online courses.

The inclusive individual coaching phase complements this e-learning phase by partnering you with an expert coach, who will support you throughout the learning journey to develop your training skills and help you ask the right questions. Each coach will also facilitate small group discussions to foster peer-to-peer exchanges and provide technical individual feedback to participants.

This will be based on your participation, for instance, and the number of assignments uploaded.
