The Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership was designed in 2011 and 2012 in response to ongoing concerns of a perceived “lack of effective leadership” in the humanitarian sector and its impact on aid effectiveness. It is an eight-month course comprising four units which include two cloud-based units and two intensive face-to-face residential units. It is delivered using a blended learning approach that combines theory and academic rigor with practical application for graduates to test their learnings in a safe environment.
This report describes the findings of the latest Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership Longitudinal Study, a multi-year research project conducted by CHL—designed to build an understanding of factors contributing to transformational leadership in the humanitarian sector and the role of the Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership in leadership transformation.
This instalment of the study aimed to identify how Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership is influencing graduates’ work—with a view to understanding the course’s relevance and what types of impact it is having on graduates’ careers, teams, colleagues and organisations.
