The Young Lives children in Peru are spread across the country and the survey teams have to be able to function as independent units, which poses challenges for the management and administration of the survey; having teams that are capable of facing these challenges, and are well prepared for them, is critical to data quality and the success of the study. This Technical Note gives an overview of the recruitment and training processes we followed to try to ensure that teams were cohesive, mutually supportive, and well prepared for the work in Peru. We describe the process with the intention of sharing our experience and stimulating discussion, innovation and research in this area.
