LANN Master Trainers Course

SUN CSA Laos, in partnership with HELVETAS and SNV, are announcing a Linking Agriculture, Natural Resource Management and Nutrition (LANN) Master Trainers Course. This exciting opportunity will create 20+ Master Trainers who can lead LANN trainings and conduct Training of trainers (ToTs) with new trainers on LANN. The Course supports the Government of Lao PDR's National Nutrition Strategy and Plan of Action. Funding for this Course is provided by the European Union through HELVETAS' NUFNIP program, with support from SNV and SUN CSA Laos.

The Master Trainer Course will include 2 trainings:

  1. The first training from 19-23 August 2019 will cover LANN sessions 1-4.
  2. The second training from 4-8 November 2019 will cover LANN sessions 5-8.

What are the trainings about?

SUN CSA members, together with government partners, have been developing the LANN approach for many years. As the popularity of LANN grows, it was identified that there needed to be more Master Trainers who can teach the LANN approach to new partners and communities. Based on this need, a LANN Master Trainers course has been developed, with funding from HELVETAS and support from SNV. The aim is to create 20+ Master trainers who can lead trainings and conduct Training of trainers (ToTs) with new trainers.

Costs to attend the two trainings should be paid by the participant's organisation. For organisations without project funding, a travel fund can be requested from HEVETAS through the EU-funded NUFNIP project. Both trainings will be in Lao language.

Who can apply?

SUN CSA member organisations can nominate 1-2 candidates to participate by filling in the application form. For each candidate, they will need to:

1.      Have previous direct experience in facilitating trainings;

2.      Experience with implementing LANN preferred.

 Due to very limited spaces on the Course, spaces will be allocated based on the following:

  •          A balance of NPA and INGO participants
  •          Preference to organisations willing to provide LANN trainings to other organisations
  •          A geographic spread of organisation working areas
