Meals & Dietary Requirements:
All meals will be taken communally with all other groups using HPSS starting with breakfast on Monday morning and ending with dinner on Friday night. The food is solid but basic and served buffet style in a large canteen. Food allergies can be accommodation but food preferences are not (vegetarians are expected to simply not eat proteins).
You will be trained by field-experienced security professionals who specialise and understand working in humanitarian and development contexts. They will aim to ensure that your learning is as realistic and relevant as possible to the context and risks you will face in the work you do. The training will be highly interactive and require full participation in order for you to draw the most benefit from it.
