Call for Expression of Interest – Short Term Technical Assistance to Identify Priority Areas for 4children Support to the Community-Based Social Service Workforce
Contract Duration: 28 working days during October 15, 2016 – December 15, 2016
4Children contact person: Child Protection and Welfare Systems Technical Director, 4Children, with input from and in coordination with Chief of Party, 4Children Nigeria Project Director and Case. Management and Referral Technical Director
• In January 2016, 4Children began a two-year, USAID- funded technical assistance project in Nigeria. The overarching objective of the scope of work (SoW) is for 4Children to provide technical assistance (TA) to USAID and CDC Implementing Partners (IPs) in responsible graduation and transition 1 of OVC, households, communities, LGAs and states as part of the PEPFAR pivot and reflective of PEPFAR 3.0 priorities. The SoW also included a focus on supporting prioritized actions and strategies for the geographic areas identified by PEPFAR as scale-up local government areas (LGAs). The technical assistance provided by 4Children over the next two-year period will achieve the following:
• Development of guidance, strategies and tools to support improved HES and parenting.
• Strengthened linkages among and referrals between community and clinic based OVC services, including strategies for reaching more children living with HIV (CLHIV) within the OVC population.
• Strengthened capacity of government systems (LGA and state level) to advocate, plan for and use funds for OVC.
• Strategies for delivering critical OVC services at clinical facilities.
• Guidance and examples of interventions targeting adolescent girls and young women that address their increased vulnerability to both child protection concerns and HIV and can be easily integrated into existing programming.
Building upon 4Children’s activities related to strengthening the case management system and referral networks within OVC programming, 4Children aims to ensure that the community based workforce have the necessary skills, capacities, competencies and knowledge to ensure proper identification, screening, assessments, referrals, on-going monitoring and determination of readiness for case closure. Furthermore, it is critical that community based workers have basic knowledge of HIV (i.e., HIV sensitive) so that they can make referrals for testing and follow up for those that have been tested to ensure they are adhering to their regimen and receiving the appropriate care and support they need to live positively. Building on the momentum around the recently established Case Management Rapid Response Group and 4Children’s efforts to standardize a case management approach within vulnerable children programming, a team consisting of a US-based 4Children technical advisor and a local consultant, or STTA team, will conduct a desk review and scoping visit to identify what has been done to date to strengthen the social service workforce in Nigeria and what gaps still exist. Specifically, the STTA team will meet with key actors engaged in activities targeting the social service workforce, in particular the community based workforce, to capture successes to date and remaining challenges. The end objective of the desk review and field visit is the development of a proposed work plan outlining key areas of technical support that 4Children can provide over the next eighteen months (January 2017-September 2018) to bolster efforts to strengthen the social service workforce specifically as it relates to OVC programming and the case management process.
DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
The local consultant will work closely with a US-based 4Children technical advisor, together as the STTAteam, and key 4Children Nigeria staff to accomplish this SoW. Specifically, the STTAteam will conduct an initial desk review of existing materials (both published and gray literature) on the social service workforce in Nigeria (see suggested documentation, below). This review will help to identify up to date information including key achievements and existing gaps of the social service workforce and related system strengthening efforts in Nigeria. A short report (5-10 pages) summarizing the findings of the desk review and making recommendations for the field visit will be submitted by the STTAteam.
Furthermore, the desk review will help to inform the development of a list of key stakeholders with whom to conduct key informant interviews during the field visit. Based on the desk review, the team will develop a proposed agenda and list of key stakeholders to visit in Nigeria. This list will include but not be limited to the following: USAID, 4Children Nigeria, representatives of 16 OVC IPs, UNICEF, Nigerian Association of Social Workers, relevant government bodies and academic institutions, and AIHA. Furthermore, the STTAteam will develop a draft key informant interview guide to be reviewed by 4Children (specifically Kelley Bunkers, Child Protection and Welfare Systems Technical Director, Dr. Tapfuma Murove, Chief of Party, and Dr. Itua Obaitua, Technical Director – Case Management and Referrals) prior to the field visit. The field visit will include key informant and/or focus group discussions with relevant stakeholders.
The visit will result in a report that includes key findings and proposed activities wherein 4Children can focus its efforts and technical support to ensure that the proposed activities within the 4Children Nigeria Work plan (Annex 1) are up to date and reflect priority needs within the sector. These recommendations will be considered and will help to inform the eventual development of a second phase of technical assistance provided by the STTA team. Areas of interest and potential future 4Children areas of support to be considered during the field visit include but are not limited to:
The appropriateness of supporting a validation process of the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance (GSSWA) Para Social Work (PSW) Competency Framework;
A substantial review of existing PSW (i.e., community based worker) training curricula to identify strengths and gaps and make recommendations for developing a standardized OVC case worker training curriculum that links to and supports the case management package and ensures that the curriculum is gender, HIV and disability sensitive; and
Proposed advocacy activities to support the recognition of the community-based workforce within the broader social service workforce.
The local consultant will work closely with the US-based 4Children technical advisor to conduct the activities and produce the deliverables as per the table below.
