Overview

This is an online flex course. Read more about that style of learning below!

More and more donors are requiring their funded partners to publish data to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Bringing together Bond’s expertise in IATI and Humentum’s experience in online learning, this 2-week online course supports you to publish to the IATI data standard.

Recruiting for grants managers is always a challenge because it is difficult to truly assess the candidates’ depth of technical knowledge around a wide array of complex issues. The Humentum Certificate in Assistance Management allows organizations to more easily identify and select candidates who will provide the expertise they need.

The Flex approach to learning: 

  • Learn online and completely in your own time. 
  • Learn through engaging videos, assignments, and structured reading. 
  • Interact and learn with other participants and a facilitator in a virtual and social learning environment. 
  • Earn points for various tasks completed, including watching videos, completing assignments, leaving comments and interacting with others.
  • The more tasks you complete, the more points you’ll earn. And the quicker you earn these points, the sooner you’ll complete the course.

To successfully complete the course within 2 weeks, we recommend that you dedicate at least four hours per week.

Who is it for?

The course is highly relevant if you’re coordinating or managing the IATI publishing in your organization, or looking to enhance transparency or meet donor requirements for either grants or contracts.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to: 

  • Explain what IATI is 
  • Use the IATI data standard to share information on your funding and projects/programmes
  • Understand how and why others use the data, including donors (donor requirements) and partner organisations
  • Create an example IATI dataset using commonly used, free software such as AidStream

After the course, support is available from Bond via the IATI support desk at support@iatistandard.org. There is also lots of useful information in the IATI section on the Bond website.
