UNDP will, though a transparent process, establish the Expert Group on Strategy and Scope towards end of the inception phase of the project. In general terms, the main purpose for the establishment of the EGSS is to contribute to the strengthening the dialogue and continuous cooperation and coordination among the relevant experts and TAF, in particular for the development of the training scope, strategies and materials.
The Expert Group on Scope and Strategy (the EGSS) will host a number of experts and academics with different backgrounds and expertise areas (i.e. education, human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, sociology, pedagogy, psychology, statistics, monitoring and evaluation, interactive learning systems etc.) The overall objective of the EGSS will be to develop the scope and strategy of the training programme. However achievement of this overall objective will not be sufficient, for both the Technical Assistance Team and Project Management Office will need on-going assistance to ensure that the training materials to be developed thereafter are in compliance with the overall scope and strategy of the training programme. Thus the rationale for establishing the EGSS is to ensure (a) continuous involvement of some critical experts in the Project and (b) development of a coherent training system for the conscripts and the resource persons.
The Terms of Reference is therefore for the members of the EGSS including a list of activities to be carried out, indicative time plans, resource schedule and expected outputs, profile and qualifications of their members.
Duties and Responsibilities
The EGSS is expected to be composed of maximum 10 experts and/or academics who have extended experience in the fields of adult education, human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, sociology, pedagogy, psychology, statistics, monitoring and evaluation and interactive distance learning systems. For each field of expertise, it is expected that EGSS will have one member. In case of need, the number of the members can be increased based on the findings of the inception period of the Project.
The members will provide assistance to the TAT and Scientific Committee within the lifetime of the Project, particularly in terms of ensuring the developed of a coherent training system for the conscripts and the resource persons.
The members of the EGSS will work closely with the Scientific Committee, which will be composed of senior academics in relevant fields of expertise. The final products including the scope and strategy of the trainings together with the training materials will be approved by SPO in consultation with the Scientific Committee.
Expected roles and responsibilities of the EGSS are as follows:
