To support our partner organisation Women Against Violence and Exploitation in Society (WAVES), we are looking for a Social Scientist, Social Education Worker, Psychologist (m/f/d), Bo, Sierra Leone

Your new role
The end of the civil war in 2002 marked a turning point for Sierra Leone. After years of violence, the people of Sierra Leone were able to focus on rebuilding the country, sometimes with strong international support. But despite the huge progress made in recent years, the resource-rich country still faces considerable challenges that threaten the peace and stability of the region.
Even almost 20 years after the end of the civil war, the consequences of the violent conflict are still omnipresent. Insufficient access to education and resources and a high level of unemployment are accompanied by a growing lack of prospects, especially among young people. Sexualised and gender-specific violence is still part of the reality of life for many people in Sierra Leone. Girls and women suffer from physical and psychological violence on the one hand and are socially disadvantaged and restricted in the development of their identity by a variety of social and cultural practices on the other. Offenders often go unpunished.

This is where the work of our partner organisation Women Against Violence and Exploitation in Society (WAVES), which has been active in the south of the country since 2005, comes in. WAVES is committed to directly supporting women and girls affected by violence. In addition, the organisation proactively campaigns for changes to the social norms and national laws that disadvantage girls and women.
Based on concrete work in the Bo region, WAVES is increasingly active in lobbying and advocacy work to improve the overall social framework for girls and women.

Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
 You will support WAVES employees in the further development of appropriate approaches to the topics of gender and sexualised and gender-specific violence and help to develop new target group-oriented working methods and to establish these in the organisation.
 You will advise the team in its efforts to change national laws and social norms on the above-mentioned topics. Part of your work will be to help realign the lobbying and advocacy strategy and to train your colleagues at WAVES in campaign work.
 You will support the employees in all matters of project management and jointly develop the necessary internal processes, structures and materials.
 You will conduct training and further development events for the team and develop appropriate training materials.
 You will be responsible for the proper spending and management of funds locally in accordance with the donor and AGIAMONDO guidelines. In doing so, you will work in partnership with WAVES.

Your profile
 You have completed a university degree in a social science subject, preferably in sociology, social education or peace and conflict research or in psychology. You have several years of relevant professional experience.
 You have practical experience in working with sexualised and gender-specific violence. You are sensitive and respectful in dealing with survivors of sexualised and gender-specific violence and are used to working appropriately in taboo topics. Relevant work experience in another cultural area – ideally in West Africa – would be an advantage.
 You are experienced in supporting participatory processes to change social norms and national laws. You have relevant knowledge in media, lobbying and advocacy work. Knowledge of the strategic benefit of social networks and creativity in dealing with modern media are a further advantage.
 You have gained initial experience in the design and execution of surveys and research projects, including the evaluation and processing of the collected data and presentation of the results. You are able to familiarise your colleagues with the basics of this work.
 You have excellent written and verbal English skills and are willing to learn Krio as part of your preparations. Knowledge of additional languages of the project area would be an advantage.
 You are prepared to live and work in a simple environment in rural Sierra Leone.
 You are an EU or Swiss citizen and, as a member of a Christian church, identify with the goals and concerns of church development and peace-building work with a strong sense of conviction.

Expert Pédagogue en Burundi , Burundi

Expert Pédagogue (h/f) – Burundi

Enabel est l’Agence belge de développement. Elle exécute et coordonne la politique belge de développement international, et travaille principalement pour le compte de l’État belge. L’Agence met également en œuvre des actions pour d’autres organisations nationales et internationales. Avec 1400 collaborateurs, dont plus de 70 % de personnel local, Enabel gère quelque 150 projets, essentiellement dans des États fragiles d’Afrique.

Contexte
L’intervention « Appui Complémentaire à la Formation Professionnelle et Technique (ACFPT) » a démarré en 2016 et fait suite à plusieurs autres interventions dans le domaine de la formation technique et professionnelle au Burundi. En octobre 2017, une réorientation du projet a concentré l’action sur le niveau « Enseignement des Métiers » (formation de base d’une année) et sur 13 centres de formation ciblés. Ces 13 centres sont appuyés au travers de 4 axes :
- Axe Pilotage : appui à la gestion financière et opérationnelle des centres ;
- Axe Qualité : appui à la qualité des formations dispensées (dont édition des outils pédagogiques) ;
- Axe Insertion : développement d’outils pour favoriser l’adéquation formation-emploi et l’insertion des jeunes sur le marché du travail ;
- Axe Accès : support en termes d’infrastructures et équipements.

Les objectifs et les résultats à atteindre au niveau des centres sont identiques, et davantage de qualité et d’autonomisation des centres (dans chacun des axes) sont recherchées en vue de la durabilité de l’intervention. Un 5e axe a été ajouté pour renforcer l’attractivité de l’enseignement des métiers, notamment à travers les outils digitaux.

L’axe Qualité a finalisé et fait valider les curricula (composés de référentiels métier-compétences / formation-évaluation et fiches techniques) pour 20 métiers enseignés dans les Centres d’Enseignement des Métiers (CEM) et également quelques formations modulaires de courte durée sur des compétences complémentaires attrayantes dans le contexte socioéconomique du Burundi. Mis à part d’éventuels modules complémentaires à développer en cas de forte demande des centres bénéficiaires, la phase de prolongation doit permettre d’évaluer, suivre et améliorer l’implémentation des curricula, ainsi que de renforcer les compétences pédagogiques et techniques des formateurs des 13 centres (env. 250) pour la mise en œuvre de formations de qualité.

Description de la fonction
L’Expert Pédagogue est responsable de la bonne exécution du Résultat 2 (« La qualité de la formation et la performance sont améliorées ») et contribue au Résultat 5 (« L'attractivité de l'Enseignement des Métiers est renforcée par la digitalisation et la stimulation d’une culture basée sur les résultats ») et aux autres résultats du projet ACFPT dans sa phase de prolongation. Ses domaines de résultats sont :

Instauration d’un dispositif d'accompagnement rapproché au bénéfice des CEM :
Mettre en place un système de suivi régulier de la qualité des formations dispensées dans les 13 CEM appuyés par le projet, avec l’aide d’un Expert National (à recruter), en planifiant les interventions régulières de conseillers pédagogiques du Ministère partenaire, et en effectuant ses propres missions ponctuelles sur terrain.

Renforcement des capacités pédagogiques des formateurs :
Sur base du système de suivi et selon les besoins identifiés, organiser des coachings réguliers et des formations ponctuelles/remédiations pour améliorer les capacités pédagogiques (ex : approche par compétences, découpages pédagogiques, dynamique de travail en groupes, gestion des stages, évaluations certificatives,…) des 250 formateurs des 13 centres bénéficiaires.

Renforcement des capacités techniques des formateurs :
