SSR and Violent Extremism Training Course development project

The objective of the mandate is to develop and run a face-to-face training course on SSR and VE in French and in English, with the expectation that these would then be run on a yearly basis (one of each), potentially in field locations in order to maximise their accessibility for practitioners. 

The anticipated outcomes of the development and delivery of the SSR and VE trainings are:

  1. 1.         Enhanced implementation of VE-related activities within broader SSR contexts;
  2. 2.         Enhanced understanding, competence and effectiveness of staff engaged in wider VE-related and SSR-related programming;
  3. 3.         Personnel more effectively able to engage with local, national, regional and international actors and relevant good practice in supporting SSR and VE-related SSR activities;
  4. 4.         Contribution to a coherent and operationally focused continuous professional development approach for military, police and civilian personnel engaged in SSR and VE-related activity;

In practical terms, increasing the capacity and capability of relevant staff in these fields, will improve the quality and relevance of specialist SSR training, which in turn will lead to more effective technical programming, support and implementation of preventative programmes in region.
