UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The UN Women Training Centre (TC) is dedicated to supporting the UN and other stakeholders to realize commitments to gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s rights through transformative training and learning. Its mission is to become the leading UN Centre that contributes, through training for gender equality, to building a society that respects and promotes human rights for all women and men. The gender capacity-development programmes range from basic and introductory levels to specialized and advanced levels for diverse audiences with different backgrounds. In terms of capacity-development strategies and techniques, the Training Centre makes maximum use of on-line training techniques, paying special attention to e-learning courses and an active learning approach.
The UN Women Training Centre also promotes articulation and knowledge exchange among gender training specialists and other relevant groups and the development of tools and materials in the area of training for gender equality. It supports the documentation of existing good practices and innovative processes, as well as discussion and analysis of training methodologies and approaches directed towards contributing to ongoing capacity development as a concrete means for achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment.
In 2016, the Training Centre is commissioning a number of working papers to further strengthen the theoretical work of the Training Centre to inform our practices and the training field in general. The Working Paper on Evaluation of Training for Gender Equality entailing a conceptual framework on evaluation for the UN Women Training Centre was commissioned. However, the selected consultant was not able to finalize the paper. Therefore, this consultancy is to finalize the paper to complete the working paper series set.
