MENA Trainer Development Program
(Program dates 17-21 September 2018)


The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is an independent, nonpartisan institution established in 1984 and funded by Congress to increase the nation’s capacity to manage international conflict without violence. USIP’s mission is to prevent, mitigate and resolve violent conflicts around the world by engaging directly in conflict zones and providing analysis, education and resources to those working for peace. Since 1997, USIP’s Academy, located in its headquarters in Washington, D.C. has delivered peacebuilding trainings, workshops, and courses to over 65,000 individuals worldwide. In addition to the MENA programs portfolio, the MENA Trainer Development program aims to strengthen existing local, regional, and national capacities of USIP-related stakeholders to deliver high-quality USIP training programs and educational courses and to consolidate USIP’s educational expertise within the MENA region.

What is the MENA Trainer development program?

The MENA Trainer Development Program aims to build and strengthen the capacity of 20 trainers in the MENA region and develop a cadre of competent instructors and facilitators in their communities. This program will also allow these participants to conduct more impactful USIP designed trainings and support USIP regional training expertise.

What does this program offer?

The MENA Trainer Development Program will include two phases. In phase one, trainers will develop facilitation skills for a range of processes as well as learn skills and tools for conflict analysis, negotiation, mediation, and dialogue. Once trainers have completed this phase, they can apply to participate in phase two- a training of trainers program-through which they will learn the content and pedagogy to deliver USIP trainings. Those who complete the two phases will partner with USIP on the delivery of training.

How will I benefit from it?

Through this program, participants will have access to USIP Academy’s courses on peacebuilding, dialogue facilitation, conflict analysis, etc. to acquire the thematic knowledge on topics such as conflict assessment and mapping, negotiation, mediation, dialogue, training skills, etc., so that they learn different pedagogical tools they can later apply in their own training activities.

What are the outcomes?

Throughout this program, participants will:

  • Acquire advanced knowledge in USIP’s core content areas
  • Acquire knowledge and skills in participant-centered approaches to teaching
  • Apply current practices in delivering USIP trainings
  • Apply facilitation skills to promote learner engagement, reflective practice, critical thinking, and skill acquisition
  • Show mastery in delivering key strategies for participant engagement
  • Use appropriate levels of intervention when managing difficult training situations, including disruptive learner behaviors
  • Initiate a personal plan of action to strengthen their training and facilitation skills

Which training topics will be covered ?

➢ Phase one:

Stage 1:

  • Facilitation skills: The main goal of this stage is to prepare instructors to present information effectively, respond to participant questions, and lead activities that reinforce learning. Other goals include ensuring that trainers can direct participants to supplementary resources and reference materials, lead discussions, listen effectively, make accurate observations, help participants link the training to their jobs.

Stage 2:

  • Conflict Analysis: Through this stage, participants will be able to learn and subsequently teach relevant stakeholders on the ground how to identify and map conflict (sources of tensions, key stakeholders, current mechanism to address conflict, early warnings, etc.)
  • Conflict resolution: Alternative conflict resolution mechanisms (such as negotiation and mediation, etc. and the differences and similarities between them), this will allow participants to build a mental framework of different mechanisms to resolve conflict, and how these could be applied to different communities.
  • Dialogue: From research, to design, to implementation, to monitoring, this is one of USIP’s signature tools of conflict resolution. Participants could immensely benefit from gaining an insight on the process behind a successful dialogue.

➢ Phase two:

  • Training-of-trainers (ToT): Tailored training based on advanced USIP expertise and USIP Academy’s ToT training manual on the different core content areas (conflict analysis, negotiation and mediation, and dialogue).

Trainer development program assessment

Before the initiation of the training, participants will have to take a capacity assessment test that may be conducted in following ways:

➢ Pre-Training :

  • Performance assessment: Identifies strengths, weaknesses and areas of improvement.
  • Interview: Ask the participant that what he/she wants to improve and what he/she needs to learn.
