Consultant to develop e-learning module on working
with children and young people affected by sexual violence through
Terre des hommes, together with Bedfordshire University, Pulse
Foundation (Bulgaria) and Stichting Alexander (Netherlands) have started
a cooperative project entitled LEAP:
Supporting children and young people affected by sexual violence in
Europe by strengthening and facilitating participatory practice.
As part of the project, the British Bedfordshire University has
developed a training package for professionals on the subject. The
training package is aimed to be used in a 4-day training for
practitioners. The aim of the training is to improve knowledge,
skills and understanding of a child-rights, safe and ethical
participatory practice and to develop confidence, and a commitment to
participatory practice when supporting children and young people (CYP)
who are affected by sexual violence (SV). An additional objective is to
support practitioners to become ‘champions’ in advocating for
To Develop an e-learning course – based
on the existing training package – to be published on the Child
Protection Hub web-portal – using the moodle platform -and for the use
of child protection professionals in Europe.
The course will be translated into Albanian, Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, Romanian and Dutch.
The course should heavily build on the existing training package and should keep its content and philosophy.
Various methodologies to make the course interactive would be highly
expected. While partners have limited capacity to provide online
assistance to learners and the course was originally envisioned as a
’self-directed course’, consideration needs to be made to include online
mentoring elements into the course (e.g. forum discussions, one-on-one
skype consultation, scheduled webinars or discussions).
The course should include short videos (to be created by the
consultant), additional reading materials, case studies, possibly games.
The consultant will be responsible for the technical implementation of
short videos in a format allowing their use on a moodle platform as well
as including the training material into ChildHub’s moodle platform.
The author of the training package can be made available for
consultation for the development of the online course. Drafts will be
peer reviewed by partners and selected experts identified by
Bedfordshire University and Terre des hommes.
The deadline for the completion of all versions of the e-learning
course is April 2017, with development commensing in September 2016.
Interim deadlines (1st draft, English version online for testing, peer
review, testing of English version, translations) will be finalized with
the selected partner.
