Switzerland: Review of OCHA Learning and Training Programmes – Senior Consultant

 FULL TIME, Hoteles  Comments Off on Switzerland: Review of OCHA Learning and Training Programmes – Senior Consultant
Nov 122018
 

Organization: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 12 Nov 2018

Expected outcomes:
a) Existing gaps and new needs against organizational priorities are identified and course curriculums are updated and fully aligned (2018 -21 Strategic Plan, People Strategy, Creating a Better OCHA, among other key references);
b) Rationalized and strengthened integration of foundational and technical/thematic programmes and courses in the form of learning pathways, leading to increased coherence across curriculums with operational/administrative efficiencies including use of learning technology;
c) Sustainable high calibre capacity is in place to meet demands for high quality learning and training programmes in line with minimum standards and more systematic approaches; and
d) Strengthened learning analytics and evaluation practices to ensure sound return on investments.

Work Location: Geneva

Expected duration: 2.0 months

Duties and Responsibilities

Rationale and background:

OCHA has a strong tradition of providing high quality learning and training programmes pitched at OCHA staff and its partners for generic, foundational-level and humanitarian coordination training as well technically/thematically-focused courses. These include a range of topics covering civil-military engagement, communications, environmental emergencies, humanitarian financing, humanitarian programme cycle, information management, among other.

The overall goal of OCHA learning and training programmes aims to ensure high caliber capacity of OCHA staff and partners to effectively respond to humanitarian crisis. The 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, People Strategy and New Operating Model present as overarching frameworks for all OCHA learning and training, leading to organizational effectiveness. While the value of OCHA training is evidenced, there is a recognized need to further align the programmes and courses with organizational priorities and to optimize the overall level of coordination, coherence and efficiencies.

Central to this effort is the wider strategic aim to ensure that OCHA investments in learning and training are well rationalized with minimum standards and lead to tangible results for effective humanitarian coordination.

In support of these aims, the PS&MC has requested LDU to lead a corporate review exercise on select OCHA learning and training programmes. The main output is a report on findings with workable recommendations and a proposed plan of action to address gaps and meet new demands for strengthening organizational effectiveness.

Over the past number of years, efforts have been ongoing to strengthen learning and training with particular emphasis on coordination of courses and programmes being implemented across OCHA Branches/Sections.

These efforts serve to address a situation where learning and training products have developed over time by a number of Branches/Sections in response to specific demands and the evolving characteristics of the humanitarian landscape. As such, some courses have similar objectives and content, which may serve to compliment or reinforce other trainings, but in some cases may be duplicative.

Planning and delivery of OCHA learning and training programmes is another area where efforts have been made for strengthened approaches including the adoption of the OCHA Guidelines on Training, common calendaring and cross branch collaboration in design and roll out of programmes. The concept of the learning pathway is becoming instituted in OCHA with more work needed to fully integrate programmes from being stand-alone activities.

It is also noted that OCHA is moving into more blended approaches and use of learning technology with scope to further optimize and strengthen efficiencies. Learning analytics and evaluation is another area for more work with reference to the full implementation of the existing common monitoring and evaluation framework for learning and training.

More recently, a cross-branch Strategic Mapping Exercise was carried out on required skills and knowledge drawn from the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan and mapped against OCHA’s current offerings. This exercise resulted in a number of findings with related recommendations including existing gaps against the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, the need to rationalize the range of training programmes, particularly in the foundational domain, and integration into a learning pathway; the need for greater coherence across curriculums that address common learning objectives, among other.

Overall Aim:

An in-depth review of OCHA learning and training programmes to identify areas for strengthening and solutions for a more optimized and rationalized approach to learning and training with minimum standards, leading to greater overall impact in support of organizational priorities. The review will focus on a select number of corporate learning and training programmes including in the foundational and technical/thematic domains – see Annex 1.

The Consultant will work under the supervision of LDU, which will facilitate interaction with the Reference Group on Learning and Training, managers and other stakeholders across Geneva and NY. LDU will provide all relevant background information as well as scheduling of meetings and other logistics.
The consultancy will be in the form of a two-person team with a defined set of responsibilities over a period of two and a half months.

Senior Consultant

Under the management of the Lead Consultant, the Senior Consultant will undertake review specific programmes and feed inputs to the lead consultant for consolidation into the capturing of findings and recommendations in the main reports. This includes the focus review of foundation level programmes.
Responsible for contributing/presenting to the Reference Group on Learning and Training as well as undertaking interviews with managers, technical staff and training providers.

Qualifications/special skills

Skills: • Strong knowledge of learning technology including distance
• Expert level in Organizational development and Instructional Design
Academic Qualifications: Postgraduate level degree in social sciences, political schemes, international relations, and other as relevant;
Experience: • Experience conducting corporate training evaluations, review exercises; and
• Working knowledge of humanitarian training themes, OCHA’s mandate and the wider humanitarian system
Language: Fluent in English and working knowledge of French

Switzerland: Stop TB Partnership – Technical Officer, Innovations & Grants (ING)

 FULL TIME, Hoteles  Comments Off on Switzerland: Stop TB Partnership – Technical Officer, Innovations & Grants (ING)

Organization: UNOPS
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 21 Oct 2018

Background Information – Job-specific

The vision of the Stop TB Partnership is to realize the goal of elimination of tuberculosis (TB) as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB by ensuring that every TB patient has access to effective diagnosis, treatment and cure; stopping transmission of TB; reducing the inequitable social and economic toll of TB; and developing and implementing new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies. The Stop Partnership is uniquely positioned to support the development and further implementation by partners of the current and future Global Plan, acting as a coordinator and catalyst for the range of partners engaged in the fight against TB.

The Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH initiative provides grants to partners in lower-income and/or high TB burden countries to test innovative and well thought-out, yet unproven approaches and technologies which aim to:

  • Decrease the time it takes someone with TB to receive appropriate treatment, and
  • Improve adherence and treatment success for people started on anti-TB treatment.

TB REACH combines open, but targeted calls for proposals, fast-track financing and rigorous, external monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to rapidly produce results. Other donor agencies and/or national governments can then scale-up the successful approaches piloted by recipients of TB REACH funding to maximize their own investments and to accelerate progress in the fight to end TB.

This Technical Officer position will provide operational management and technical support to organize and manage a multi-million-dollar grants platform, the TB REACH initiative, and provides technical assistance to a broad range of implementing partners / organizations, governments (National TB Programs) around strengthening TB prevention and care services in line with the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020.

  • Develop TB REACH’s Grant Management System (GMS) to manage grantee quarterly technical and financial reports, provide real-time online grant finance tracking reports, make grant payments.
  • Grant payment approval processes mapping and establishment of SOP for TB REACH Secretariat, Stop TB Finance Team, and UNOPS Portfolio Management Team. Provision of training on operational matters to the above staff, and conduct regular monitoring of proper implementation of SOPs.

  • Work with the Stop TB Finance team and UNOPS PMT to facilitate cash flow estimations and financial reporting to donors.
  • Work within the ING team and across other teams (STBP Finance, Executive Office, UNOPS PMT) to develop budgets and estimate funding envelope for each round of TB REACH Call for Proposals.
  • Work with TB REACH grantees in collaboration with the Strategic Initiatives & Innovative Financing Team and TB REACH grantees to promote the rapid roll-out of new, quality assured innovations in high burden countries in the TB space, including diagnostic/adjunct technologies and digital health solutions, etc.
  • Coordinate and provide statistical guidance on a multi-country evaluation of artificial intelligent (AI) software packages to automate the reading of chest x-ray radiograph. Share results and publish the findings to help inform WHO Expert Review and Endorsement process.
  • Prepare annual Donor Reports in accordance to reporting requirements of TB REACH donors (incl. Government of Canada, Gates, USAID)
  • Ensure provision of TB diagnostics for TB REACH grantees, coordinating efforts between Global Drug Facility (GDF), vendors and grantees.
  • Secure pre-market access of advanced diagnostic tools with suppliers for TB REACH Grantees.
