About the course

The purpose of this online course is to strengthen results-based management of child protection programmes through clear and practical guidance. It aims at strengthening planning, monitoring and evaluation practices including the documentation of good practices and lessons learned in Child Protection. The Child Protection Resource Pack was developed by the UNICEF Child Protection Section with contributions from the Division of Data, Analysis, Planning and Monitoring, as well as the Evaluation Office.

This course is an online adaptation of the Child Protection Resource Pack ‘How to Plan, Monitor and Evaluate Child Protection Programmes’ (published in 2015 and revised in 2018), complimented by lessons and RBM resources that have emerged since then.

Learning objectives

By the end of the course, you will learn how to:

  • Better design, implement, monitor and evaluate child protection programmes, based on RBM principles; and
  • Better report on child protection results (at the country level as well as regional and global aggregate results).


This course is designed primarily for Child Protection staff but is also beneficial for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation staff. New staff who are joining the UN system for the first time are highly recommended to take this course.


It should take you about 1 hour to complete this self-paced course.
