Appel à candidature : UNESCO recrute un(e) Consultant(e) – Gestion du cycle de programme à Yangon, Myanmar.








United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Myanmar is seeking to recruit an international consultant to provide programme implementation support, particularly on planning and management as well as monitoring and evaluating of Strengthening Pre-service Teacher Education in Myanmar (STEM) and its project monitoring and reporting. The importance of teachers is well-recognized in the context of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on inclusive and equitable quality education for all. In particular, it cannot be highlighted enough under the current political challenges that Myanmar has faced since February 2021. UNESCO has implemented the “Strengthening pre-service Teacher Education in Myanmar” (STEM) project. The first phase of the project was launched in July 2014 with support from the Government of Australia, the second phase in January 2017 with support from the Government of Finland, with the Governments of Australia and the United Kingdom providing further support to Phase 2 in April and September 2018 respectively. With Phase 2 ending in June 2020, STEM entered Phase 3 through 2023 under a multi-partner trust fund with the Government of Finland joining a basket fund. The STEM project currently works in partnership with various technical partners to address critical issues in pre-service teacher education through technical and capacity-development support for the formulation of key teacher policy frameworks, the restructure and redesign of pre-service teacher education curriculum and programmes, and the strengthening of the institutional management of Education Degree College (ECs), including investment in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Initiatives have strengthened the capacity under national leadership for a range of products and processes to advance teacher education reform in Myanmar.
