 Is this course for me?
The course is conducted in English and Arabic, and is designed to empower child protection practitioners from international and national non- governmental organisations, UN agencies, and government representatives to strengthen their child protection humanitarian response capabilities in both chronic crises and new emergencies.

The Entry level course page is designed for child protection practitioners with one to two years of experience. It focuses on: child protection legal foundations; child protection risks; child protection principles; and cross-cutting themes.  

The CPIE Entry Level Course is part of the CPIE Professional Development Programme. The CPIE PDP is divided in three learning levels: Entry, Intermediate and Advanced. Each level will deliver several learning blocks and will be offered online, with some off-line, asynchronous tasks as well as live, synchronous. Each learning block represents an area of Child Protection Minimum standards (CPMS).
