The Pacific World Bank Project Orientation Course provides an introduction to the knowledge and skills required by anyone who works on a World Bank-financed project in the Pacific.
The self-paced course is designed so that learners can complete short 5-15 minute lessons in their own time and as their work schedule permits.
The course has been developed based upon a Pacific-wide Learning Needs Assessment which identified the foundational skills and knowledge - the ‘core competencies’ - necessary for successfully implementing and managing Bank-financed projects in the Pacific.
The topics covered in the course include: World Bank Expectations; Project Management; Financial Management; Procurement; Environmental and Social Risk Management/Safeguards; and Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning.
The course complements the implementation support and supervision provided by World Bank task teams during project missions.
The eLearning course can be taken as a standalone course or as a refresher for people who have attended the five-day face-to-face course of the same name.
