Trainer of Trainers – construction camp standards training for Camp Managers
(PART – TIME for 4 months with opportunity to extend / become full-time, funding dependant)
Baan Dek Foundation (BDF) has been working to improve the wellbeing of vulnerable children and families in Thailand since 2002. BDF shifted its focus to assisting families from the construction sector in 2012. Since then BDF has been working with contractors, piloting solutions in construction site camps, to improve camp conditions in simple ways.
BDF’s joint research paper with UNICEF, “Building Futures in Thailand,” (2017) examined the living conditions of migrant workers living in construction site camps in Thailand and aims to contribute to the spread of good practices in the private sector. During this research project, stakeholders from all sectors (14 real estate developers, construction companies, and subcontractors; 3
government Ministries; and 20 NGOs) were interviewed to assess the condition in camps comprehensively.
The result of this research was the Chiang Mai Framework for Action (CMFA) comprised of 12 key recommendations for companies to keep camps safe and healthy for families, so that children and workers alike can thrive.
The framework was developed for companies to use for themselves, and BDF is working with UNICEF to share this framework to the wider sector, including tools for implementing the recommendations.
The timelines for this strategy are:
- Phase 1 (Nov 2016 - Oct 2018) – “Building Futures in Thailand” research: Studying the problems children and families face living in construction site camps, and developing the CMFA to address these problems.
- Phase 2 (Nov 2019 - Oct 2020) – Tool Development & Facilitation: Developing tools for the construction sector to implement the CMFA, demonstrating implementation in “demonstration sites,” assisting companies in adopting the CMFA and relevant tools with training, workshops, and on-the-job support in camps.
- Phase 3 (Nov 2021 - Oct 2022) – Adoption of the CMFA: Strengthening tools further and facilitating adoption of the CMFA by the construction sector.
To support the adoption of the CMFA and tools for implementing the recommendations, BDF is hiring a Trainer of Trainers.
