The deployment of Umoja (Foundation) to Cluster 2 – Special Political Missions and MINUSMA - is scheduled for 1 March 2014.

The training strategy for the 1 March deployment draws on lessons learned and uses the training capacity developed for Cluster 1 missions.  Each mission nominated a Site Training Coordinator responsible for developing the training agenda, administering the courses, tracking  individual progress through the inspira Electronic Learning Management System (ELM), and completion of end-user training programmes.  They will collaborate closely with the Umoja training team to manage training content, data available on the training environment, overall training coordination, and reporting.

Several of the Cluster 2  missions nominated trainers from their own missions.  The Umoja Training Team will transfer knowledge to the designated mission trainers through a Train-the-Trainer (TTT) programme.  This programme will run from 13-31 January 2014 and will be held in two locations.  The TTT for Supply Chain, Real Estate and Independent Contractors and Consultants will be held in Entebbe, and the TTT for Financial Administration and Financial Management will be in Kuwait. 

Many of the Special Political Missions (SPMs) in Cluster 2 are supported by a mission from Cluster 1.  In such instances resources will be drawn from the supporting mission to provide trainers for the end-user training.  A few of the very small SPMs will receive direct end-user training by attending training in a regional hub or through virtual instructor-led classes.   The design of the training agenda will be based on the final user access mapping for the mission, with end-user training set to begin on 3 February.  Umoja Training materials and Job Aids are available for review purposes via the Umoja Training page as well as the iSeek Umoja page (limited to UN Network).
