The Bioforce Institute is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1983 by Dr Charles Mérieux in Lyon, France. The Institute has been committed to capacity building in the humanitarian sector for over 30 years now. During that period, Bioforce has trained tens of thousands of humanitarian professionals many of whom are the leaders in the sector today. The Institute has become a reference for humanitarian individuals and organisations in need of learning opportunities and solutions.
The Bioforce Institute is involved in the Humanitarian Passport Initiative (HPI) which aims at developing a Professional Development Framework for the Humanitarian Sector. Following the first phase of research carried out by the HPI, the Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA) is supporting the creation of a Collaboration Centre for Quality Learning in Humanitarian Action (2016-2018). The Bioforce Institute will host and coordinate the Collaboration Centre, lead and coordinate the cornerstone programme relative to the development of the assessment standard, and contribute to the programme work on the development of the learning standard. The Collaboration Centre will be launched in November 2016. The overall purpose of the Centre is to contribute to a faster, more effective and efficient humanitarian response with increased local participation and ownership by supporting the development of humanitarian practitioners’ competencies. The Collaboration Centre for Quality Learning in Humanitarian Action will do this by contributing to the Humanitarian Passport Initiative alongside the Collaboration Centre for Recognition of Skills, Experience and Learning with the collective goal of establishing a global system that can recognise, develop and record the competence of humanitarian workers to deliver high quality humanitarian response and accountability to recipients of aid.
The Centre will aim to achieve 3 outcomes:
  1. High quality training and capacity building is available to humanitarians which meets their learning needs, effectively builds their competence and which is locally relevant and accessible;
  2. High quality and standardised assessment is available to humanitarians, allowing them to measure and demonstrate their competencies;
  3. A sustainable mechanism for coordinating, developing and promoting quality learning and assessment is in place within the humanitarian sector.
The Project coordinator will be in charge of the coordination/implementation of the work of the Collaboration Centre on developing the quality framework for assessment of competencies.
The Project coordinator will report to the Collaboration Centre manager on all issues. As a Bioforce staff member, the project coordinator will fall under applicable Bioforce internal policies and procedures.
