Event Description


This two day course prepares participants for short-term election observation missions, providing an insight into the nature of the work and developing the key skills needed. It will encourage observers' ability to work as part of a team and deal with the challenges of a mission environment. The second day of the course involves an assessed simulation. Participants will be observed by experienced election observers who will assess their skills against the requirements to be an STO. Successful completion of the course can potentially provide a route into this area of work with ERIS, one of the UK’s selecting organisations for election observers.

Who is it for?
This course is designed for first timers who would like to apply for a first Election Observation Mission as a Short Term Observer. Short Term observation provides an ideal entry point to further develop field experience and an understanding of the realities of the field. Please note that only UK nationals are eligible for selection by ERIS. Whilst the course is also open to non-UK nationals, recognition by national focal points of this training varies.
