The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) is a dynamic and growing inter-governmental organisation, with 166 member states.  IOM is committed to the principle that “humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society”. Established in 1951 and now active in over 440 field locations worldwide, IOM works with partners, government and civil society to promote international cooperation to address operational challenges of migration and mobility, assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems, and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.

IOM call for Consultants - Education and Training Development Expert/s

The incumbent will offer technical expertise and support to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) South Africa Mission, in reviewing and updating the Trafficking in Persons (TiP) National curriculum, to reflect the new TiP legislation for five government client institutions.
This project that has been funded by the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, U.S State Department, titled “Capacity Enhancement for institutionalised victim centred investigations and prosecutions of Trafficking in Persons (TiP) Cases in South Africa”. This project will contribute to the Government of South Africa (GoSA) and civil society efforts, to uphold the rights of victims of trafficking and increase prosecution of TiP cases. The project aims to focus on mainstreaming a victim centered TiP curriculum, into the training programme of targeted government departments, to ensure that relevant officers, at all levels, have an understanding of TiP. 

Special emphasis has to be given to South Africa ‘s TiP legislation, that was promulgated in 2013, and became operational in August 2015, and to the specific relevant departments directives and regulations. By integrating these standards into the existing education and training programs of the government departments, GoSA will increase its capacity to train existing and future law enforcement officers and practitioners as well as members of the National and Regional TiP task forces, in a manner that is both independent and sustainable over the long term. 

IOM will deliver ToT workshops for government instructors from targeted government departments on the curriculum. The TiP curriculum will be mainstreamed in government departments’ staff orientation and training programmes. Targeted departments for this project are South African Police (SAPS), Department of Labour (DoL), National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Department for Social Development (DSD), Department of Home Affairs (DHA), Department of Justice(DoJ), and Department of Health (DoH).

Five modules will be reviewed and updated and one developed as per required standards.
