Terms of Reference Teacher Training Module Developer
Project: Strengthening Inclusive Education Systems and Services in Nepal
The purpose of the consultancy is to adapt and finalise training modules that will provide knowledge, skills and guidance for ongoing support to teachers to apply UDL as a pedagogical approach. The modules will also cover integration of ICT, safeguarding and school change management. This would include preparing training materials and hand-outs (to be designed and translated for delivery of training in local language under a separate contract). The consultant will also be expected to oversee delivery of a training session for a Training of Trainers team including teachers, itinerant teachers and school managers on UDL.
The modules will be delivered over seven days in Chitwan district in Bagmati Province: at a central venue between Kalika Municipality and Bharatpur Metropolitan City. The training material has to be designed for delivery to a core group of master trainers who will in turn roll out the training to teachers at school level. The training should capacitate teachers with skills, values and attitudes towards creating enabling learning environments in which reasonable accommodation is available for all learners and the individual needs of children with disabilities are also addressed. This will also include ever increasing knowledge on how to cater for specific individual support needs and referral to services, wherever these may be available, also including home-based and community-based services.
Leonard Cheshire is collaborating with a number of partners in a consortium led by Humanity and Inclusion to ‘Strengthen Inclusive Education Systems and Services in Nepal’.
The teacher training will be delivered by the respective TOTs at 35 government schools of Kalika Municipality and 119 schools in Bharatpur Metropolitan City. Thus, the total number of targeted schools will be 154 (with an enrolment of approximately 35,000 children) in both municipalities. At least 770 teachers, 154 school managers (SMCs) and 154 PTA members will benefit from this activity.
The project aims at addressing the challenges for the delivery of basic education for all children, due to a lack of trained teachers, limited teaching and learning materials and lack of parental and SMC engagement to improve school. The Government of Nepal has a number of policies that aim to support inclusive education for children with disabilities and other children with learning support needs. However, poor coverage and limited budgets result in limited reach in geographical coverage and therefore the inclusion of children with all types of disabilities and other children with learning support needs is a particular challenge amongst the different marginalised groups.
This training is expected to contribute towards:
