Learning Events

There will be four phases:

  1. Curriculum development: There are not many examples of course in Gender in Social Accountability readily available. It will be necessary to do considerable adaptation of existing social accountability and gender courses. Moreover, the topic will need to be a perfect fit with the Cambodian context to have the necessary impact. An international expert on social accountability, an international expert on gender and a Cambodian expert on Gender will work together to develop the curriculum. This will take about 8 working days between mid January and beginning of February.
  2. Training of Trainers: Five MOI trainers will be trained to deliver the course. To this end the three experts will run a two day Training of Trainers (ToT). The three experts will also select the trainers. The ToT will take place in the beginning of February. The training and its preparation will take about 5 days.
  3. Two Coaching Courses: The trained trainers will deliver the course with the assistance of the three experts. The participants in the course will be about 25% gender focal points from relevant Ministries, 25% social accountability experts from relevant Ministries, 25% gender specialists from NGO leadership and 25% social accountability experts from NGO leadership. The MOI trainers will be given as much opportunity to as possible to practice and perfect their training skills progressively until they are confident they can deliver the course without further assistance. Each training will take 2.5 days and will run in the middle of February.
  4. Three Courses: The trained trainers will deliver the course to three groups of about 25 participants without further assistance from the experts. The Cambodian expert might continue to fulfil a role of supervision. Each training will take 2.5 days and will run in the second half of February and the beginning of March.
