Global Nutrition Cluster e-learning platform

View this article as a pdf

The Global Nutrition Cluster’s (GNC) online learning platform provides access to e-learning modules related to nutrition cluster coordination (CC) and information management (IM). The development of the e-learning platform began in 2019 to address the needs and constraints identified in the GNC capacity building approach, namely the high demands for capacity development and strengthening across coordination teams and cluster partners supported by the GNC and a need to revise the face-to-face learning approach.

A pilot of the e-learning platform was launched during a webinar held by the GNC in October 2021. The event outlined the features of the platform and the types of content available. GNC Nutrition Cluster Coordinators and Information Management Officers were invited to participate in the pilot between October and November 2021 during which they would provide feedback on the platform’s content and functionality while supporting their own professional development and contributing to shaping the GNC learning platform. Feedback from the pilot has since been incorporated into the platform, facilitating its public launch in April 2022.

The CC modules aim to strengthen capacity in nutrition CC and are targeted at individuals and organisations interested in coordinating a nutrition response in a humanitarian context. The IM modules aim to strengthen the capacity of individuals and organisations interested in managing information for a nutrition response in a humanitarian context. In both cases, the e-learning modules are organised into six functional competencies as described in the CC and IM Competency Frameworks. Learners are able to select the modules they wish to take across three levels (introductory, intermediary and advanced) based on their interests and professional development goals. All modules are open access and currently available in English, French and Spanish.
