Reports to:CRIS Project Manager
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries, the IRC aims to restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC has been operational in Serbia since October 2015 supporting programs in response to the mass influx of refugees. The IRC works with a group of national non-governmental organizations as well as relevant institutions delivering a comprehensive protection program and continues to design new strategies to further address the needs of the refugees and victims of human trafficking, especially children.
General Goal of the Project:
The overall objective of the CRIS project is to improve outcomes for children involved with the Serbian justice system through systematic application of the rights of the child and evidence-based supports in legal proceedings.
Purpose of the Assignment in relation to the project
The assignment is directly related to improving capacity of duty-bearers in the Serbian judicial system and civil society to provide CFJ and uphold the rights and needs of children in accordance with national legal requirements and international best practice.
For this purpose, a training toolkit should be developed and will be composed of governing guidelines, standards, policies, and directives in relation to CFJ, the actual training curriculum that will be developed by the project, and a checklist or self-assessment tool for practitioners’ use. The consortium partners will identify and train trainers on the CFJ training toolkit through a Training of Trainers (ToT) and will provide ongoing, tailored coaching and mentoring to trainers during the roll-out of the training.
