  1. Context and Background
ADRA and ACTED have worked in consortium since 2015 providing vocational training (VT) in 9 displaced persons camps to prepare camp residents for return. The proposed action continues the work of the consortium, adapting it to a changing context that calls for support to the coordination of livelihood activities, and in particular integrated vocational training, with all sectors active in the camps in order to support provision of basic services and income generation in the camps and to prepare camp residents for a future outside of the camps. This contributes to the overall objective of supporting the development of sustainable livelihoods for Myanmar displaced persons, strengthening their self-reliance towards achieving durable solutions while contributing to basic services in nine camps.
 

During the development stage of the project an initial dialogue, intending to guide the Action to respond to community needs, was conducted amongst various camp leaders, section leaders, and field teams in early May 2018. Taking shape in this discussion, it was made evident that while technical, advanced VT skills are highly useful and sought after, as return processes streamline and the number of displaced persons planning to return increases, there is also a need for a course designed to provide and meet the immediate skills that displaced persons will require to build a life upon return. It was in response to this need, that the ‘Practical Preparedness for Return’ (PPR) course was envisaged.

 

Initial discussions suggest the course could include a range of components which would support integration to a new community and reinforce the immediate needs of returning refugees. However, the course curricula will be determined based on results of the assessment and analysis undertaken through this consultancy.

 

Following the development of a PPR curriculum, the course will deliver tailored support to camp residents considering return. Support will be provided through an intensive, 120 hours, multi-component, Practical Preparedness for Return course. The practical preparedness course should include skillsets crucial to displaced persons during the transition and reintegration period.

 

 

  1. Duties and responsibilities of the consultant

The Consultant will be required to design and pilot a Practical Preparedness for Return course which is aimed at helping include a range of topics useful to the refugee returnees. The consultant will run a ToT workshop on the curricula following completion. The consultant will build on lessons learnt and coordinate with camp-based stakeholders and CCSDPT members to contribute, through practical exercises, to develop training curriculum on practical preparedness with a pilot practical training tailored to the needs of returnees in rural areas and new settlements.

 

After his/her recruitment, the consultant shall:

  • Undertake field missions to selected Refugee Camp sites and Mae Sot to collect relevant data and information and hold discussions with camp management, CBOs in camps, NGOs in camps, camp communities, ADRA staff and other key stakeholders engaged in return planning and activities such as the Committee for Return and Resettlement (CRR) as well as those who have participated in Go & See activities.
