The paper presents proposal from the IASC Task Force on Training for the creation of an IASC Emergency Team Leadership Programme (ETLP). The ETLP will provide a means for potential and current emergency team leaders to learn together and to share experiences. Using the Emergency Team Leaders Competency Profile as its foundation the programme will also foster establishment of networks and mentoring relationships across organizations.

The document consists of two parts:
1) Part one presents the rationale, objectives, design, principles and the proposed work plan for moving the initiative forward
2) Part two, which is a background document, presents the results of the IASC Task Force on Training’s needs assessment on emergency team leadership and the proposed Competency Profile for Emergency Team Leaders
