The UNESCO Evaluation Office is currently seeking proposals from qualified individual consultants and/or evaluation companies to conduct the corporate Evaluation of UNESCO’s work on teacher development.
UNESCO is the UN agency mandated with promoting education and has been designated as the custodian of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on access to quality education. To achieve this ambition, UNESCO’s work has focused amongst other on the development of teachers, as essential actors of the field of education, capable of instilling learning. Quality education cannot be guaranteed without initially guaranteeing the quality of teaching.
The Australian Volunteers Program aims to document outcomes related to assignments and partner organisations working on disability inclusion in their programs across the 26 program countries. The main objective of this review is to document the stories of change relating to the developmental outcomes of existing partner organisations that have disability inclusion as part of their program, and the contribution of Australian volunteers to those outcomes.
The MEL Unit of the Australian Volunteers Program is seeking short-term technical advice on approaches to analysing contribution. We are looking for a consultant to work with us to consider options as to how we can strengthen our existing approach to case study collection (based on Outcome Harvesting) and use multiple cases to analyse contribution; to discuss the theory and attempt (in a limited way) the practice.
We are hoping to find an individual consultant with demonstrated experience in outcome harvesting, process tracing, and/or contribution analysis, who is willing and able to take an innovative approach to the use of different methods. An interest in participatory methods, and experience in evaluating international development and/or partner capacity strengthening programs would also be desirable.
The South Australian Community-Led Emergency Resilience (CLER) project is funded by the National Australia Bank (NAB) and will run from September 2021 to December 2022. The project aims to strengthen community resilience through a series of workshops that bring community leaders together to assess their community’s strengths and risks. This includes a process of measuring their community resilience. The community leaders then plan, design, and implement local activities with their communities to improve resilience baselines. The project is running across three locations in South Australia. As the project is founded on community development principles of bottom-up, participatory action, we would like the evaluation to be community-led with much of the evaluator's role centred on evaluation capacity building. Please see the attached brief for more details.
