Cash Practitioner Development Programme Recruitment 2020-2021
We are delighted to open recruitment to the Cash Practitioner Development Programme, also known as ‘Cash School’. The programme will continue into 2020 and beyond, based on the initial success and the 2019 pilot. This unique programme aims to strengthen the community of qualified practitioners with up-to-date skills in areas of cash expertise, helping to integrate cash skills into everyday work. The programme takes the form of a 12 – 18-month structured learning and development programme building on expertise that prospective participants have already gained. Learning activities include online and other conventional training, actionable learning, deployment experience and mentoring that is specifically tailored to each participant’s needs to improve on specific cash competencies. The programme allows individuals to be part of a community of practitioners holding themselves to a high standard of competence, and to benefit from a structure for continuing professional development.
There are multiple learning pathways available to applicants, depending on experience. During the recruitment process, applicants will be selected to move into a full pathway or an accelerated pathway. Those who do not meet the requirements of the full pathway may be invited to join a prospective cohort community to support their development for future rounds of recruitment. Adaptations have been made for the 2020 – 2021 cohort following the COVID-19 pandemic and current travel restrictions. Elements of the programme have been moved online or will be delivered remotely.
Applications will be accepted up to Friday 9th October, and must be sent to CashSchool@redcross.org.uk. To download the recruitment brochure outlining the programme and the selection criteria click here.
