Why Vocational Learning (VL) and why is it different?

Our vocational learning is developed with the specific goal of preparing students with skills for practical work application. HDLC courses are therefore designed to help professionals to join or re-join the humanitarian workforce, move into a new career within the programming environment or gain additional skills to enhance their existing career. HDLC award and short courses, as well as individual modules, have a very practical focus, converting skills, knowledge and competencies to support students gain and execute real humanitarian safety & security roles.
