UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

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 TC makes maximum use of on-line training techniques, paying special attention to e-learning courses and an active learning approach.
Safe and Fair: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region is part of the Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls, a global, multi-year initiative between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN). Safe and Fair is implemented through a partnership between the ILO and UN Women (in collaboration with UNODC) with the overriding objective of ensuring that labour migration is safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region.
In order to ensure sustainability of the programme knowledge products especially those developed under Objective 2 and 3 under the technical leadership of UN Women (with inputs from ILO and UNODC), the Regional Safe and Fair team is looking to utilise existing knowledge produced by the programme and adapt it into an online training course in order to ensure sustainable, continuous and broad outreach to a wider global audience. This initiative will support raising awareness of the general public on the multiple intersections of discrimination and violence experienced by women migrant workers, based on race, ethnicity, nationality, age, migration status or other sex- or gender-associated characteristics and what is needed to prevent and address it.
The services of a home-based consultant are sought to develop the content for an online training module on violence against women migrant workers to be offered to all interested. The online module is expected to build understanding of the intersectionality of violence against women migrant workers, focusing on the specific needs of women migrant workers, the risks they face during their migration journey, and to understand key elements in providing essential services to them, based on good practices. The online training is targeting relevant government officials, CSOs, NGOs and women’s networks’ representatives, service providers and other key stakeholders.
The developed course will contribute to the following results area in the SAF programme documents and support institutionalizing the knowledge developed under Objective 2
The consultant is expected to map existing publications and training tools on violence against women migrant workers and develop the script on the mapped content, including materials already developed by Safe and Fair, UN Women, ILO and other relevant UN agencies. The draft content and final version will be subject to peer review from UN Women and ILO Regional Offices, UNODC and UN Women Training Center. Moreover, the consultant will be required, if and when necessary, to integrate the above with additional resources stemming from other credited sources, with particular regards to global and regional case studies and best practices.
In line with the UN’s overall gender mainstreaming strategy, the consultant is expected to integrate a gender-sensitive, survivor centred and multi-sectoral approach in all learning elements (including inclusive language considerations) and apply gender analysis and mainstreaming concepts whenever feasible.
Technical guidance will be provided by the Safe and Fair programme team, the UN Women Training Centre and the Ending Violence against Women Unit of UN Women ROAP (as deemed relevant) through regular communication by distance (via email, videoconference, phone, etc.). No working space shall be provided to the consultant. Travel is not required for this consultancy.
