Welcome to ELD Training, your partner in professional development for relief, development and humanitarian practitioners worldwide.

Founded in 2000, ELD Training started in the UK and Nepal and has since grown globally. Since the beginning, our focus has been on supporting the effectiveness of development, relief, and humanitarian practitioners. We've trained thousands of staff from local, national, international, bilateral, and global organizations in over 20 countries, making an impact that extends beyond borders.

At ELD Training, everything is about results - providing positive, practical benefits for our learners and, consequently, better results for the communities they support. Our mission is to empower development and humanitarian practitioners with practical skills. We offer comprehensive training in Result-Based Management (RBM), reporting, project planning, proposal writing, advocacy, and more. Our goal is to enhance the capabilities of individuals and organizations, driving better results for beneficiaries and communities.

"The course is a game-changer. I am already applying the things I have learned and I have started seeing the difference."

- M.M., Operational Information Management and Reporting Officer, World Food Program Somalia

"Thank you for this training. Whilst "unlearning" a few old habits, I learned a lot of new skills. I will put these into action in the coming weeks."

- M.B., Project Expert with Population Services International, Ethiopia

"I wish all development practitioners would have an opportunity to undergo this training. After this training, I can never be the same. I am empowered with the necessary tools to write professionally."

- T.M., Program Manager, Techno Serve, Zimbabwe


Our approach is flexible to meet diverse needs. We provide scheduled online training through a hybrid of Zoom meetings and self-study. For those unable to join scheduled sessions, our 100% self-study courses offer convenience and adaptability. Training for teams can be provided on your schedule - as can one-to-one coaching for busy project leaders.

Whether online or in-person, our training is designed to be clear, straightforward, and immediately applicable, ensuring a significant impact for end-users and learners. We take pride in our straightforward approach, demystifying complex topics without oversimplifying. Our courses draw on real, diverse examples, frequent reflection and practical tasks and exercises. There is a focus on applying tools from the start and developing your own work - whether that's a report, project plan, M&E plan or proposal. Personal follow-up ensures that training participants receive the support they need throughout their learning journey.


Leading ELD Training, with over 25 years of experience training development professionals, Neil Kendrick, from the UK, specializes in Professional Writing, Reporting Skills, Proposal Writing, Results-Based Management, and Monitoring & Evaluation. He has shared his expertise with professionals from 100s of organizations in over 20 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas.

"As a result of the training, RBM is now our in-house tool for project evaluation and appraisal, and we mainstream RBM in all our 37 project offices across Nigeria. Neil opened my eyes to critical issues of linking activities to results and impacts, and his ability to deconstruct and demystify M&E made the training a life-changing experience."

- Dr Steve Ogidan, National Coordinating Consultant. Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending

“Neil is a wonderful trainer who lets the participants have in-depth knowledge of the course. And the way the course has been designed and is conducted really helps to grasp a good knowledge on the subject matter.”

- Kanchan Ojha, Monitoring and Evaluation Associate, World Wide Fund For Nature, Nepal
