Function: Development of 10 training modules for social and family service providers
Place of work: Kosovo wide
Project name: Strengthening social service workforce to provide continued quality social services for most vulnerable children and their families
Coalition of NGOs for Child Protection in Kosovo – KOMF, established in 2011, is a coalition composed of 34 local and international NGOs working in the child protection field, with the joint mission to advocate and protect the rights of children in Kosovo.
KOMF supported by UNICEF and in partnership with USAID, is implementing the project “Strengthening social service workforce to provide continued quality social services for most vulnerable children and their families in Kosovo”. The project has four main objectives as follows: 1. Strengthen capacities of child protection and non-child protection front-line workers, to implement the Law on Child Protection, enabling provision of quality and sustainable protection services for children; 2. Strengthen capacities of social service workforce to provide quality social services for children; 3. Strengthen capacities of Municipal Directorates of Health and Social Welfare and CSWs on planning, monitoring, budgeting, and contracting of social services; 4. Increase awareness of decision makers, social workforce and wide public, on the importance of social work and provision of quality social services.
In the frame of the second objective, KOMF is publishing the announcement for the recruitment of local individual experts to develop 10 training modules for social service providers, as part of training program from Department for Social Policy and Family and General Council for Family and Social Services.
Purpose of Activity/Assignment:
The main purpose of this activity is the development of the 10 training modules for social and family service providers. At the request of the Department of Social Policies and Family / Ministry of Finance, Labour and Transfers, topics for the 10 training modules for social and family service providers will be as follow:
In cooperation with Department for Social Policy and Family, the training programs should be developed based on the legal framework for social protection, social services and child protection, administrative instructions, accredited programs and best international practices.
Note: 10 training modules will be developed by experts profiled for each topic of the module. One expert may apply for developing more than one module, among the above-mentioned topics.
In Kosovo social services are delivered through 40 Centres for Social Work in 38 municipalities and around 50 non-governmental organizations licensed by Department for Social Policy and Family / Ministry of Finance, Labour and Transfers, by giving them the mandate for provision of social services for citizens in need.
Currently, there is a lack of accredited programs on social services in Kosovo. Based on the KOMF Monitoring Report on social services, even in 2020 and 2021, the trainings are mostly provided on an ad hoc basis and depend on the support of donors or non-governmental organizations.
It is very much needed to develop accredited training programs on social services. As per the request by the Department for Social Policy and Family /Ministry of Finances, Labour and Transfers, KOMF will provide support and expertise to develop ten (10) training modules that will be accredited for further training of social workers in cooperation with General Council for Family and Social Services.
Develop 10 training modules for social and family services, developed by experts.
