  • Sphere Training Package 2018 edition (English)
    English 109.59 MB zip 2019 By Sphere
    The Sphere Training Package (2018 edition) is an essential companion not only for seasoned Sphere trainers, but also for less experienced workshop leaders and even self-learners. The package is the main support tool for lecturers, learning consultants and field trainers who facilitate Sphere training of any kind. It contains five days’ worth of materials, and its modular nature means it can be used in its entirety, reformulated for shorter workshops, or injected into broader initiatives such as humanitarian degree programmes.
