KMH organizes a blended training on reintegration | Call for Applications and Terms of Reference
The EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub funded by the European Union (EU) is organising a blended training based on IOM's Reintegration Handbook and related training curriculum.
This call for applications primarily targets English speaking reintegration practitioners (local NGOs, national and local authorities and implementing partners) based in the Sahel and Lake Chad, Northern Africa and the Horn of African regions, as well as target countries in Asia. Applications from other regions/countries will be considered second. The training is based on a blended approach, a mix of online self-learning, webinars, individual and group assignments and experience sharing, over two months, in May and June 2022.
The IOM Reintegration Handbook, published in November 2019, and its accompanying training curriculum and online course were developed under the ORION project, as part of the Safety, Support and Solutions on the Central Mediterranean Route programme funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). The aim of these tools is to provide practical guidance on the design, implementation and monitoring of reintegration assistance for returnees.
To further facilitate a common understanding of reintegration approaches and practice among reintegration practitioners in the field, a regular training programme on reintegration is being established in the regions/countries of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration: Sahel and Lake Chad, North Africa, Horn of Africa, as well as target countries in Asia.
In this context and with EU funding, the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub offers a training using a blended approach combining autonomous online courses, webinars and individual or group exercises for its members and their partners in these regions/countries.
The main purpose of this training is for reintegration practitioners to be able to implement sustainable reintegration programmes.
More specifically, by the end of the blended training on reintegration, participants will be able to:
- Explain and apply the integrated approach to sustainable reintegration;
- Describe reintegration assistance at individual, community and structural levels;
- Prepare and take part in the monitoring and evaluation of reintegration programmes;
- Understand specific interventions for the reintegration of children and their families.
2. Call for applications
IOM is therefore seeking reintegration practitioners who are motivated and wish to better understand and apply the integrated approach to reintegration in their programmes/countries to sign-up for this training.
Twenty participants will be selected and will need to commit to taking an active part in the various learning phases from the beginning of May until the end of June 2022.
