JOB DETAIL

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Education!

Scope of work:

Under the day-to-day supervision of the international Education Specialist, Libya, the national consultant will work in close collaboration with MoE teams and the UNICEF international consultant to plan, implement and monitor the school leadership, teacher professional learning and school inspectors’ programmes. This is a substantial task with three main components. Firstly, the development of a training programme for school leaders as well as a train the trainer programme for roll out across Libya. Secondly, a detailed review of a regional UNICEF teacher professional programme called “Teacher of the Future” with MoE staff, leading to the adaptation for the Libyan context. This programme can be facilitated either face to face or online, so it is expected that the expert will have knowledge of creating and facilitating blended programmes (in line with the MoE’s drive for digitalization of all MoE staff and students).
The role includes coordination with MoE staff at national and municipal levels, monitoring and reporting on the cascade of training, and supporting the international consultant’s material development and capacity building work. It also involves the day-to-day technical support to all the programmes developed.
At the end of this phase of the programme development, it is envisaged that through a series of collaborative workshops and training sessions, there will be a school leadership programme of at least 10 sessions and a
school leadership handbook to accompany the training sessions. There will also be a teacher professional programme consisting of at least 10 sessions to support the development of pedagogy and learner centred teaching and learning. The programme will consist of a trainer handbook and teacher notes. There will be an orientation programme for inspectors which will raise awareness of the school leadership programme, and the teacher professional learning programme.
The specific scope of work includes:
In consultation and collaboration with key stakeholders and the international consultant, the national consultants will support and contribute to:
Development of a school leadership programme for Libyan school principals
1. Conduct a needs assessment and develop a roadmap for the training of school principals, in conjunction and close coordination with the MoE
2. Develop a content map of the sessions (maximum of 15 days training) based on the needs assessment
3. Develop detailed sessions, the accompanying trainer manual and notes for school principals
4. Lead the ToT and support the roll out of training across selected municipalities in Libya
Review and adaptation of the regional, Teacher of the Future, programme for Libyan teachers
1. Conduct a series of high-level technical workshops with MoE and other Government stakeholders to review the Teacher of the Future blended programme.
2. Produce a report and recommendations of how the programme could be used and/or adapted
3. In close collaboration with the MoE, adapt and prepare the programme for the Libyan context. This may involve writing some additional sessions and/or adapting sessions already produced.
4. Conduct a ToT for trainers who will facilitate the programme in pilot selected municipalities
5. Observe some of the cascade training and coach the trainers, where needed (and if possible, given the Libyan context).
6. Update sessions, with the MoE selected trainers, if needed, based on feedback from teachers.
Develop an orientation programme for school inspectors
1. Conduct a needs assessment with school inspectors and other stakeholders and make recommendations for the content of the orientation programme.
