    Switzerland: Review of OCHA Learning and Training Programmes – Senior Consultant Job ID#102088

     FULL TIME, Hoteles, Recursos Humanos  Comments Off on Switzerland: Review of OCHA Learning and Training Programmes – Senior Consultant Job ID#102088
    Aug 282018
     

    Organization: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 30 Aug 2018

    Result of Service

    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

    3 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.

    Switzerland: Global Learning and Advocacy Advisor Juvenile Justice Programme

     FULL TIME, Hoteles, Ingenieria Quimica  Comments Off on Switzerland: Global Learning and Advocacy Advisor Juvenile Justice Programme
    Aug 252018
     

    Organization: Terre des hommes Foundation Child Relief
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 21 Sep 2018

    We are looking for our Headquarter in Lausanne for a

    Global Learning and Advocacy Advisor Juvenile Justice Programme

    Context:

    By 2020, Terre des hommes aims to contribute significantly and sustainably to improving access to justice for children in contact with the law globally. Terre des hommes seeks to become a leading worldwide reference on restorative juvenile justice, to contribute to developing and improving justice systems by enhancing the restorative approach and in particular by promoting alternatives to trials, detention and specialized custodial care for children, better prevention and reintegration, and synergies in contexts of legal pluralism. To that end, Tdh’s strategic plan creates a comprehensive framework for action that combines axes on operations, advocacy, research and quality and accountability.

    Main responsibilities:

    The objective of the advocacy component of the strategic plan is to support key juvenile justice stakeholders to take decisions and engage in actions that promote the restorative approach and help to promote children’s access to effective justice, fight against institutional violence against children in juvenile justice systems, increase the number of children receiving non-custodial sentences and strengthen the role and participation of children, their families and community. Therefore, each individual advocacy activity put for-ward in the strategic plan, from the organization of multi-agency campaigns and interdisciplinary spaces for dialogue, to supporting children’s advocacy initiatives, should, ultimately, contribute to creating lasting and meaningful change in the lives of children in contact with the law.

    Between 2009 and 2018, Tdh has organized three major international events on justice for children: in 2009 in Lima, in 2015 in Geneva, and in Paris in May 2018, gathering thousands of experts including academics, policy-makers, governmental agencies and civil society representatives. These experiences have been seminal moments in the life of Tdh’s juvenile justice programming, whereby Tdh has demonstrated its ability to bring together global specialists in juvenile justice theory and practice alongside national counterparts to share best practices and lessons learned in upholding the rights of children in justice systems and encouraging a restorative approach. Increasingly, as was the case with the Paris Congress, these events present opportunities for Tdh to play a leading role within interagency networks amongst peer organizations, to promote a spirit of partnership and complementarity and galvanize a sense of unity in tackling common goals. The organization of these international events requires significant investment in terms of time and resources, not just in terms of logistics but also in terms of ensuring top-quality content to make them attractive and appealing to a high-caliber audience. Importantly, the efforts required to put on such events are comparable to the energy and commitment needed to continue to develop and nurture the relationships and deepen the collaboration with the wide range of stakeholders who attend international or regional conferences to encourage them to implement new learning in their practice. If we are to ensure that the connections, ideas and motivation generated by Congresses effectively catalyze and amplify changes in the lives of children in contact with the law across the world, then it is imperative to consider the work done in between the events as being as important as the work done during the events themselves. The role of the Global Learning and Advocacy Advisor for the Juvenile Justice Programme aims at ensuring the advocacy activities that create multidisciplinary spaces for dialogue and learning are in line with its strategy of creating sustainable change for children. To that end, the position will be responsible for the organization of international and regional juvenile justice events while, at the same time, ensuring that the momentum created by these events is sustained over time through the development of communities of practice, with a view to changing behaviors towards more rights-based and restorative approaches to children in contact with the law. By combining expertise in the organization of JJ events with knowledge of digital tools to bolster participation and capacity building, the role is crucial to ensuring that Tdh retains its competitive edge as an organization that promotes innovative solutions to make a difference for children worldwide.
