CEP is seeking on behalf of the ENTRi project two external consultants for the implementation of the Training Impact Evaluation Mission (TIEM) of ENTRi activities:
- TIEM on three Training of Trainers (ToT) courses and a ToT Package
- TIEM on two Human Rights (HR) courses
The ENTRi (Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management) project aims at better enabling staff in EU, UN, AU and other crisis management and stabilisation-type missions („crisis management missions“) to work in an efficient, effective and sustainable manner in order to achieve their missions’ mandates.”
The value of capacity building of ENTRi training activities depends on what impact it has on missions’ operations. The impact on mission’s operations depends on the change in practice and behaviour of its members following training and mission’s support to motivate the use of such capacity.
Impact evaluation of ENTRi trainings/activities has several key functions:
2.1. Utilization – TIEM provides input which can be used in planning and delivering future ENTRi trainings.
2.2. Accountability – TIEM justifies the financial and other investments in the trainings and ensures continuous involvement of the stakeholders.
2.3. Contribution – TIEM demonstrates there is a strong link between well designed and implemented training and effective personal performance in the civilian crisis management mission.
2.4. Relevance – TIEM increases understanding of the roles and contributions training makes to civilian crisis management.
The Consultant will provide the materials to execute the items and deliverables as described in the Terms of Reference (ToR). The scope of this work includes (a) performing pre-mission activities (incl. refining interview questions), (b) performing surveys/questionnaires/interviews with former ENTRi trainees, possibly their line managers and beneficiaries to gauge training impact, (c) data collection that relates directly to the evaluation questions, and (d) preparation of a final report describing evaluation findings. The work shall be carried out under the supervision and in close consultation and cooperation with the relevant ENTRi partners, members of the Working group on Evaluation, in charge of training impact evaluation functions.
TIEM Report will include all relevant findings of the evaluation and should be completed and circulated for comments by 10 December 2018. The final report will delivered by the Consultant electronically and open to a review process by the ENTRi mission members.
