Deadline: 30 June 2016
Open to: government officials and representatives of civil society organizations, working in key positions within the field of adult learning and education in UNESCO Member States
Fellowship: health insurance, a return economy ticket to Hamburg and accommodation, lump sum to cover living and miscellaneous expenses
In October 2016 the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will offer six CONFINTEA Fellowships for a period of one month to government officials and representatives of civil society organizations working in key positions within the field of adult learning and education (ALE) in UNESCO Member States.
The Fellowship Programme aims at strengthening the capacities of Member States in implementing major elements of the Belém Framework for Action (BFA) and therefore Fellows are selected on the basis of their potential to develop national strategies in their respective countries. Producing such a draft national strategy is the key expected output of the programme.
UIL will provide each Fellow with a workstation and access to the Institute’s resources, in particular its library’s unique collection. In addition, Fellows will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with other Fellows, UIL staff and external partners. The CONFINTEA Fellows will receive input and assistance from UIL staff, but should also be prepared to work on their own initiative.
Applicants for CONFINTEA Fellowships should:
- Have extensive experience – whether in government or civil society or as a researcher – in the field of adult learning and education (ALE);
- Be involved in formulating policies or planning and implementing programmes at the national level (involvement in national activities related to the follow-up of CONFINTEA VI would be an asset);
- Have a good command of MS Office;
- Have fluent spoken and written English and, ideally, a working knowledge of another United Nations language.
UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will arrange and pay for health insurance, a return economy ticket to Hamburg and accommodation close to the Institute. A lump sum to cover living and miscellaneous expenses will be paid upon arrival.
How to apply?
Applicants must submit the following documents:
- A written proposal for a national ALE strategy in line with the Belém Framework for Action (max. 3 pages);
- An up-to-date curriculum vitae;
- A cover letter.
Email applications should be sent to the CONFINTEA Fellowship focal point, Ms Angela Owusu-Boampong, at: firstname.lastname@example.org latest by 30 June 2016.
