CPiE & EiE Professional Development Programme Administrator

CPiE & EiE Professional Development Programme Administrator

The Administrator will work to support the rollout and delivery of the East & Southern Africa (ESA) Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme (ESA CPiE PDP) and of the Education in Emergencies Professional Development Programme (EiE PDP).

Building on the successful capacity building model developed by Save the Children and now established in the Asia Pacific region (for CPiE) and Middle East & Eastern Europe (for CPiE and EiE), the ESA CPiE and EiE PDPs will raise national & regional response capacity in these respective sectors. Using the results of a regional CPiE and EiE Capacity Gap Analyses and the Mapping & Market Analysis data, a comprehensive CPiE and EiE professional development strategy will be designed for the region to meet the priority needs of organisations and individuals responding on the ground.

In addition to building sector capacity as a whole, the ESA CPiE and EiE PDPs constitute a strategic investment in building the capacity necessary to deliver on Save the Children’s Protecting Children in Conflict Centenary Commitment.
