Security Management Learning Programme (SMLP) Workshop

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) | Nov 2015

InterWorks facilitated the 21st workshop event of the ongoing Security Management Learning Programme (SMLP) in Bangkok, Thailand from 23-27 November 2015.

The SMLP is a Global Learning Centre (GLC) and Division of Emergency, Security and Supply (DESS) joint initiative to support managers in the field by increasing capacities and awareness in handling the difficult challenge of balancing operational imperatives and the safety of staff. It is a blended learning programme, consisting of a self-study module with an online test, followed by a workshop.

Twenty-eight participants from UNHCR participated actively throughout the 5-day workshop. The workshop was intensive, interactive and work-oriented, and employed a variety of methodologies, including two mini critical incident management simulation exercises, presentations and case studies as well as group and plenary discussions. It also included an extensive practical application of security risk management methods.

Intensive workshop but not boring at all. Almost all the sessions were interesting and the simulations stimulating
