Description

–>

UNICEF has been working with the Ministry of Education, local counterparts, and communities to provide the country’s most disadvantaged children with inclusive quality education. In 2021, UNICEF initiated the Inclusive Education Project together with the Department of Teacher Affairs, Ministry of Education. It aims to improve the education system towards inclusion not only for children with disabilities but also for all. This is expected to be achieved primarily through an improved pre-and-in-service teacher training system. Building capacities at provincial and local levels to implement and sustain project interventions remains one of the key strategies to achieve the inclusive education programme goal.
In partnership with the implementing partner, the Research Centre of Inclusive Education based at East China Normal University, UNICEF has developed a set of training materials. These materials target education administrators, pre-and-in-service teachers in primary and junior secondary schools, and other local experts (The key components are displayed at the end of this section). It is crucial to provide effective training to local trainers through a train-the-trainer approach. This ensures optimal implementation of cascading the capacity development process down to the school level within UNICEF supported pilot areas.
To achieve this, we are seeking an experienced international consultant who can design and deliver participative training for both principals and teachers. This training will be based on the developed materials, international best practices, and contextual considerations.
To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have:
  • Masters’ Degree on Education and the related discipline.
  • Minimum ten years of professional experience in teacher and principal training, specifically focused on inclusive education.
  • Hands-on experience in designing and delivering participative training workshops for both teachers and principals.
  • Proven track record in international consultancy, working with overseas countries and/or international organizations.
  • Previous engagement with UN agencies is considered as asset.
  • In-depth understanding of China’s education context is required.
  • Excellent writing and speaking skills in English. Knowledge of Chinese is a strong asset.
  • A collaborative team player with strong communication skills
  • Ability to work effectively within tight deadlines
