About the course

PLC Seed, Grow and Extend

The PLC comprises three different courses: Seed, Grow and Extend.

PLC Seed is designed for participants with between 0 and 2 years’ experience (approx.) in conflict, disaster and crisis situations. Participative and action-oriented, PLC Seed provides you with information to better understand and navigate the disaster and crisis response system, and to develop your skills as a leader.

PLC Grow is designed for participants with between 2 and 8 years’ experience (approx.) in conflict, disaster and crisis situations. PLC Grow enables you to hone your leadership skills and provides you with the tools and techniques to better influence and navigate the disaster and crisis response system.

PLC Extend is designed for participants with more than 8 years’ experience (approx.) in conflict, disaster and crisis situations. PLC Extend will expand your ability to lead teams and organisations in rapidly evolving crises, while developing your networks to influence change within the humanitarian and crisis response system.

PLC Seed, Grow and Extend are delivered by a partnership between Centre for Humanitarian Leadership and Action Against Hunger. The PLC is funded by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Program content is the responsibility of the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership and Action Against Hunger and does not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government.
