How can you make a difference?

Purpose and objective.

The overall purpose of the assignment to strengthen UNICEF staff capacity to critique, conceptualize, manage, implement and ensure the uptake and use of rigorous and credible evaluations across programme areas.

Specific objectives are to :

  • increase or upgrade their current depth or level of applied evaluation knowledge and skills (delivered through three-day workshop);
  • enhance specific skills in designing and conducting evaluations of development programs (delivered through two- day thematic evaluation clinics).

 

Methodology and technical approach.

The capacity building is to be delivered through two complementary channels:  a) three days interactive workshop and b) two days of one-to-one hands one ‘clinics’ on the ongoing, completed or proposed evaluation activities.

The emphasis of this training is on relevance to UNICEF CO programmatic work and practicality, meaning that the workshop materials should be contextualised in socio-economic and cultural context of the country. Examples, to the maximum extent possible, has to be from UNICEF Mozambique programs and evaluations (to be provided by UNICEF staff in advance), and several case studies for the workshop are proposed to be developed from the same in a joint effort with UNICEF staff.

One -to one two-day clinics are designed to support individual evaluation projects on specific issues of design, theory of change, methodology, management response etc. It is expected that UNICEF and its partners (invited to participate) will share the TORs or relevant evaluation documents well in advance for the consultant/consultants to review and provide a feedback in one -to-one session with evaluation managers or project supervisors.

This consultancy includes home-based desk review and course material conceptualization, contextualization and preparation, as well as travel to Maputo, Mozambique to conduct the 3-day training and 2 days of clinics. The consultants are expected to :

  1. Review relevant strategic documents and guidance (including UNICEF 2018 Evaluation policy), UNICEF CO 2017-2021 country programme ;
  2. Design course methodology and relevant modules for the local context ;
  3. Carry out a 3-day training in Maputo and 2 days of clinics ;
  4. Prepare a [joint] brief final report with key recommendations.

The workshop is to be delivered using interactive methods of engaging the audience including but not limited to case studies, group discussions, and role play.  It is expected that the workshop and clinics will be delivered in English.
