KMH releases Call for Applications: Training on Monitoring and Evaluating Return and Reintegration Programmes
As part of its capacity building activities, the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub funded by the European Union (EU), is organizing a third English roll-out of the training on Monitoring and Evaluating Return and Reintegration Programmes based on IOM's monitoring and evaluation guidance for Return and Reintegration Programmes.
This call for applications targets primarily monitoring and evaluation practitioners working on return and reintegration. Priority will be given to candidates working in Northern Africa, West and Central Africa, East and the Horn of Africa, and selected countries in Asia. The training takes a blended approach combining self-paced online modules, interactive live virtual sessions, knowledge checks, group work, individual exercises assignments and a final examination over a six-week period from 19 September to 27 October 2022.
The Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) training for Return and Reintegration Programmes aims at strengthening the competencies of M&E staff and Reintegration practitioners involved in Monitoring and Evaluation activities of Return and Reintegration Programmes. The development and production of this training is supported by the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub (KMH), which was established in September 2017 under the EU-funded Pilot Action on Voluntary Return and Sustainable, Community-Based Reintegration. The KMH aims at supporting the implementation of the EU-IOM Actions addressing migrant protection and sustainable reintegration in Africa and Asia by ensuring coherent voluntary return and reintegration approaches, harmonising M&E activities, setting up knowledge management tools, and producing knowledge products.
This blended course will give the opportunity to learn the core knowledge related to monitoring and evaluating Return and Reintegration Programmes. Specifically, by the end of the training course, participants will be able to :
Understand the framework for return and reintegration, define the purpose of the integrated approach to reintegration, and understand the key elements of reintegration assistance.
Explain the importance of M&E for Return and Reintegration Programmes and identify existing IOM M&E resources and guidelines.
Apply the results monitoring framework to a Return and Reintegration Programme in line with existing M&E guidance.
