Viet Nam: International Consultancy to Design an Integrated Early Childhood Development (IECD) Parenting Programme, Ha Noi, Viet Nam

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Viet Nam
Closing date: 04 Sep 2017

If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

Background:

Integrated Early Childhood Development (IECD) is a core element of UNICEF’s country programme cycle 2017 – 2021. Global evidence highlights that early childhood development is critically important for a child’s learning achievements, health outcomes and future productivity[1]. IECD is a comprehensive approach to assist children from birth to eight years of age, as well as their parents and caregivers (hereafter referred as “parents”). IECD is based on a life-cycle and integrated approach designed to ensure that children are safe, healthy, and ready to learn, and thrive. For UNICEF Viet Nam, IECD will seek to maximise the impact of child-centred early childhood supports within the context of their families and community, contributing to improved outcomes in children’s wellbeing and family functioning. Specifically, the IECD programme aims to improve the integration and quality of services (e.g., health and nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene or WASH, pre and primary education, social policies, and child protection) for expectant mothers and under-8 children. It will strengthen the local capacities to coordinate, collaborate and provide referral pathways for young children and their families in a cohesive way. Parenting education is an important component of the IECD programme, which cuts across sectoral services and is able to demonstrate the approach of integration to early childhood development.

A growing body of research from low- and middle-income countries indicates that parenting is the primary pathway to the development of children. Evidence from various studies have shown that parenting practices have a major influence on the realisation of a child’s potential[2]. From this evidence, “parenting programmes” have been developed and shown considerable impact on improving well-being of children, family relationships, and benefiting the wider community.[3]

Defined as “interactions, behaviours, emotions, knowledge, beliefs, attitude and practices associated with the provision of nurturing care”[4], parenting is recognised as a solid foundation for child protection, education, child survival and overall development. The common broad objective of parenting programmes is to create awareness of the importance of the parents’ roles and empower parents in relation to supporting children’s growth and development, and to strengthen or modify caregivers’ attitudes, beliefs and practices in relation to caring for and rearing a child. This helps to ensure the nurturing care of all aspects of child development including psychosocial, cognitive, communication, language and physical aspects.

Viet Nam has a wealth of experiences in implementing “parenting programmes”, especially by the NGO sector. National programmes have approached parents from different dimensions including nutrition, health care, hygiene, education, injury prevention, and good parenting skills, etc. Supporting parents through different activities has also been a major community-development component implemented by many NGOs such as Plan International, Child Fund, Save the Children, and World Vision. However, such programmes are either sectoral-based and/or community-based with little integration across sectors. An integrated parenting programme, which could address most of parents’ needs and encompass all related sectors has not yet been identified in Viet Nam. As such, UNICEF and its partners are keen to support the Government to establish an integrated parenting programme as part of the IECD programme which is aimed for Government to scale up nationwide.

Objective:

The main objective of this international consultancy is to work with UNICEF and relevant partners to design a feasible parenting programme, to be implemented on a pilot basis in UNICEF’s IECD 3 target provinces with a view to it being replicated nationwide. Specifically, the international consultant will:

  • Take the lead in working with UNICEF’s IECD team and key partners to design a high quality integrated parenting programme on early childhood development, based on international and Vietnamese good practice, including a communication component and relevant training package.
  • Supervise the process of validating the parenting programme design (including the communication component and training package) with relevant national and provincial Government and non-government partners.
  • Finalise the parenting programme design (including the communication component and training package) for implementation by the relevant Government partners, with the support of UNICEF and NGOs, in the 3 IECD target provinces.

Specific Tasks and Methodologies:

In order to complete this assignment, it is strongly advised that the international consultant should, in close consultation with UNICEF, directly hire a national consultant to help her/him in completion of this consultancy assignment including supporting the adaptation and translation of the programme design and its associated materials for the Vietnamese context.

It is expected that a large part of the assignment can be home-based, however, there will be a need to work in-person with UNICEF’s team and conduct field visits during the consultation and testing processes. The methodologies and activities suggested below are recommended and negotiable, which should be specified in the consultant’s technical proposal.

Detailed Tasks and Deliverables as per the attached TOR Consultancy Notice - Consultants for designing IECD Parenting programme_Final.docx

Management and reporting:

The Consultant will be supervised by the Chief of Child Protection, and will work closely with UNICEF IECD Team, Child Protection and Communication sections. The UNICEF Child Protection Specialist will be assigned as the focal point for the consultant, and will liaise and facilitate engagement with relevant stakeholders for the Consultant, as well as provide technical inputs and support as needed.

As mentioned above, the International Consultant will be solely responsible for the national consultant, including support for quality insurance of deliverables. In engaging a suitably qualified and competent national consultant, UNICEF will support the International Consultant by introducing suitable candidates, but it is the whole responsibility of the international consultant to hire and supervise the national consultant. UNICEF will provide appropriate budget information in this respect to support preparation of a financial proposal.

The international consultant is also responsible for proper translation between English and Vietnamese.

It is expected that the consultant will maintain frequent contact with UNICEF via email, Skype, phone and meetings. All submissions will be made electronically unless other means are needed (e.g. voluminous documents, technical problems).

Qualifications/ Specialised Knowledge and Experience:

Applicants must meet the below requirements:

  • Advanced university degree in the social sciences, child welfare or disciplines directly relevant to early childhood development.
  • At least 10 years of professional work experience, with a specialisation in child welfare or early childhood development, with relevant international experience highly preferred.
  • Substantial experience in developing parenting curricula and similar work.
  • Demonstrated advanced understanding of early childhood development (including health care, nutrition, WASH, social policy and child protection), and new trends in the area of early childhood years.
  • Proven knowledge of human-rights based approach to programming, children’s rights and the relevant international children’s norms and standards in respect of early childhood
  • Exposure to UN/UNICEF work, including in middle-income country context.
  • Proven excellent research skills including development and application of analytical frameworks and tools and production of analytical papers
  • Strong interview, team management and knowledge transfer skills (facilitation of workshops, presentation, reporting, etc.).
  • Fluent in English (written and spoken)
  • Where a national consultant is subcontracted, s/he should demonstrate equivalent level of specialised knowledge and skills and have high-level command of English and be fluent in Vietnamese (written and spoken).

Interested candidates are kindly requested to apply online and submit the following documents:

1) A detailed technical proposal which clearly explains how to deliver the required tasks including the share of work between the two consultants;
