If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you. For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. UNICEF has over 12,000 staff in more than 145 countries.
UNICEF is the lead agency in monitoring the wellbeing of children, with a mandate to support countries in collecting reliable data on children, as well as to track progress against internationally agreed targets including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Further to its role as custodian agency monitoring progress towards SDG target 5.3.1 on child marriage and 5.3.2 on FGM, UNICEF will be undertaking several initiatives around the analysis, dissemination and use of data on this topic. This will include the development of a set of training packages on the interpretation and use of data on harmful practices.
The training will be developed in two modules, one targeting practitioners in the area of harmful practices, to familiarize them with data on the topic and how it can be used in their programming, and a second targeting data users which will focused on more advanced analysis and interpretation of the data. The trainings will first be delivered in a live format (via videoconference platform like Zoom), and then packaged into an e-learning course for self-paced learning.
The purpose of this consultancy is to support the development of the training packages including identifying knowledge gaps and needs, synthesizing content into lessons, and the design, development, and production of the online training. The technical content will be developed by UNICEF’s Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and the Consultant will work closely with the SMEs in ensuring the content developed is fit for e-learning purposes. Tasks will include synthesizing and adapting content developed by experts into a training module which can be delivered virtually. Under the overall direction of the Senior Adviser, the consultant will be responsible for the design, development, and implementation of two modules that will be different in their objectives and content, but similar in their features and the user-experience.
