Selected participants that complete a single or multi-track training activity that lasts a minimum of 300 learning hours, including a capstone project, will receive a diploma. Programme managers will evaluate applications based on prior professional and academic experience and a letter of motivation. Participants must participate in at least 90% of the duration of the activity.
Diploma-level training activities may entail a single training activity or a combination of several training activities. Both tracks conclude with a mandatory capstone project, which must be completed within three years of the conclusion of the activity.
Participants completing single-track activities must submit an assessment at the end of the activity. These assessments must show the acquisition of new knowledge and/or competencies and may include: written/oral exams, action plan presentations, research proposals, and policy papers. Participants in multi-track activities must complete one assessment per activity.
Participants must complete a capstone project in the form of a written assignment. The capstone project is an opportunity for participants to apply the knowledge and critical skills gained throughout their learning experience. The time taken to prepare the capstone project may be counted toward the overall learning hours of the diploma.
To complete an activity, participants must receive a final grade of at least 60%.
