Call for Consultative Trainer

Job Title: Consultant Trainer

Number of Positions: 2

Publishing date of application: May 5, 2016

Closing Date of application:  May 15, 2016



Over the last couple years, ENEMO has been undergoing a comprehensive internal capacity building and institutional strengthening aimed at establishing ENEMO as strong and self-sustainable organization with better structure for governance and execution.  Along with this efforts, ENEMO intends to improve its election related activities.

The latest ENEMO experience in organizing a mission has revealed a need of introducing a Long-Term Observer (LTO) trainings in order to better ensure understanding of ENEMO methodology, improve quality of reporting and therefore the quality of the long-term observation.  While individually qualified as observers, coming from different countries, ENEMO LTOs have different observation and reporting methodologies, methods and skills and reporting habits.  Although LTO briefings at the beginning of a particular mission provide framework for LTOs for reporting under particular mission, the briefing does not serve as a comprehensive training.

That is why the project - “Training for Long Term Observers” envisions developing, testing and improving the LTO training methodology.  In an envisioned period of the project (May-September), a team of qualified consultant trainers will work on the LTO training methodology based on ENEMO observation methodology, policies and procedures and international standards, design training module, training manual and other materials.  The development of methodology will be followed by a Training of Trainers (ToT) and Pilot Training sessions, which will be used to test and evaluate the training methodology and make improvements, if needed. 


The overall goal of the proposed project is to contribute to improved observation and higher quality reporting during ENEMO election observation missions.

Upon completion of the project, ENEMO will have a standardized LTO training methodology, training manual and other materials that will be later used for regular regional LTO trainings, as well as for LTO trainings prior to the observation missions.  The LTO trainings will enable ENEMO to improve the skills of potential observers and have a wider pool of trained and qualified candidates available for its missions.
