How can you make a difference?

  • The proposed scope of work is a series of excel trainings, each offered for group of staff members at different levels – such as Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced stages.
  • The selected provider will work with UNICEF HR Unit, to plan and design tailored trainings based on common file types (e.g. workplans, pivotable, dashboards and budget analysis). The provider will deliver the trainings and collect evaluations/ feedback to guide planning for future sessions.
  • Sessions are expected to be approximately 1.5 hours in length, and overall training will be customized for at least three months with highly practical and hands-on schedules, and may include:
    • Basic excel (entering/editing data, formatting/modifying worksheets, functions, printing, etc.). This may draw on budget, supply tracking and workplan formats including charts and graphics.
    • Intermediate excel (managing workbooks and worksheets, outlining and subtotals, data structure & tables, auditing, etc.). This may draw on budget, workplan and donor reporting formats.
    • Advanced excel (pivot tables, etc.). This may draw on workplan and donor reporting formats (for advanced users who will use pivot in these file types).
  • It is expected that multiple sessions will be provided across the above categories to ensure hands-on training. Sessions with Field Offices can be set up where there is demand and the office is able to organize in the conference room by Zoom (with projector to allow staff to use their own computers for practical examples).
  • The training should be provided on the latest available version of excel (Microsoft Office 365) and should include content on the Excel App as well as Excel Online.
  • The provider will be responsible to evaluate staff during training sessions and make recommendations for future trainings.
