Background of the project 

The Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) and the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (the Alliance) are global networks of actors working on education and child protection in emergencies/humanitarian settings. Education in Emergencies (EiE) and Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPHA) actors work side-by-side to respond to the needs of all children and youth affected by emergencies, crises and forced displacement, including the most vulnerable children (e.g. children with disabilities). The two networks recognize the importance of supporting both complementary and integrated programs to improve outcomes for children in crisis.

Scope of Work:

INEE is seeking a consultant with extensive experience in both Education in Emergencies (EiE) and Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPHA) who is familiar with current priorities and interventions in integrated and joint programming between the two sectors. 

As INEE and the Alliance enter the third year of a formal Joint Initiative collaboration, the two networks are well-positioned to support and learn from field-based integrated programming as well as continue to deepen understanding and support of collaborative work at the global, regional, and local levels.  Continued collaboration builds on:

      Convening the CPHA-EiE Advisory Group and facilitating the identification of priorities to support the Joint Initiative.

       Initial policy paper, blogs, and research focusing on the impact of COVID-19 school closures on children and their protection. This includes the Weighing Up the Risks policy paper and blog, with accompanying webinars in English & French, that contributed to changing the discourse on COVID-19 School Closure;. A research-evidence piece  No Education, No Protection: What school closures under COVID-19 mean for children and young people in crisis-affected contexts; and The Impact of Covid-19 School Closures on Child Protection and Education Inequalities in Three Humanitarian Contexts.

       Development of foundational resources, including the CPHA-EiE Position Paper; the Competency Framework Annex, which is integrated into the Alliance Competency Framework, and the re-launched INEE Competency Framework; a joint Alliance-INEE E-Learning module on cross sector collaboration, based on CPMS Standard 23.

       Finalisation of the Guidance Note for Supporting Integrated Child Protection and Education Programming in Humanitarian Action (Published in December 2022).

The purpose of the consultancy is to deliver several key documents that support the CPHA-EiE Reference Group’s workplan, specifically focusing on the dissemination and use of the recently published Guidance Notes for Supporting Integrated Child Protection and Education Programming in Humanitarian Action. The consultant will organise CPHA-EiE Reference Group meetings andl work closely with the INEE’s Team Lead/ Thematic Areas, INEE Director, The Alliance’s Leadership and Multi-Sectoral focal point to ensure that relevant perspectives, resources, and discussions are reflected in the documents indicated as deliverables.


        Organise 5 meetings held by the inter-agency CPHA-EiE Reference Group

        Document feedback given that can be included in the CPHA-EiE Reference Group’s workplan.

        Through a consultative process with CPHA-EiE Reference Group members, document a Learning Agenda (including an outline, processes and supporting documents)

        Develop a dissemination package for the newly published Guidance Note on Supporting Integrated Child Protection and Education Programming in Humanitarian Action

        Develop at least 2 asynchronous and synchronous online orientation events for the Guidance Note on Supporting Integrated Child Protection and Education Programming in Humanitarian Action.

        Create a set of orientation, training resources, expanded list of indicators for integrated programming, contextualization and prioritisation guidance, and at least 2 targeted briefs for different stakeholder groups (and in specific, one for national authorities).

        Develop a final report that documents the dissemination activities undertaken by the Alliance and INEE that also captures member reflections and lessons learned.

        Develop mapping (gap analysis) of the Guidance Note against the work of INEE and the Alliance’s tools and resources.
