Session 1: Setting-up IATI
We discuss the use and main concepts of IATI and jointly work on how to structure activities. All trainees are asked to arrive at the training with background documents like an organisational chart and an overview of projects and other activities (this could be a donor report or annual report).
- Introduction to IATI: Origins and goals, what it can be used for, examples of tools.
- Starting with IATI: Main concepts, organisational choices including risks and opportunities.
- Structuring: Mapping out the structure of how activities are linked.
- Into more detail: Understanding results and transactions.
Trainees discuss the developed structure and possible challenges in their respective organisations and gather input and questions.
Session 2: Return-day Starters training
6-8 weeks after the initial training, all trainees come back with the input they gathered. We jointly work on answering questions and making a practical plan on your organisation’s way forward with IATI. This part includes steps to create buy-in in your organisation and a cost-benefit analysis for your organisation.
Data4Development develops and organises the IATI publishing starter training twice per year. The training consists of two 4-hour sessions and some ‘homework’ which helps you to make the most of the training.
Trainings have a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 participants per training. If the minimum participants has not been reached in time, the course will be postponed.
Our senior advisors have vast experience in helping NGO’s use new internet technologies and worked with IATI on numerous projects. Having worked with culturally diverse teams they create the ideal conditions for people with different backgrounds to flourish and strive to get the most out of every training.
