Deaf Child Worldwide is the international development arm of the National Deaf Children’s Society in the UK. We currently support work in South Asia, East Africa, and Latin America.
A core part of our 5 year strategy (2017-22) is the development and roll out of a comprehensive programme of training. This will build on our 15 years of international work with partners in 3 geographical regions and on more than 70 years of experience in the UK.
This is a challenging and exciting opportunity for a dedicated and skilled professional who will lead the development and delivery of our international training strategy, ensuring a sustainable programme of consistent, high quality training to our partners and others resulting in increased knowledge, attitude and behaviour change in relation to childhood deafness across all the regions in which Deaf Child Worldwide operates.
You will ensure that the international training offer supports the National Deaf Children’s Society and Deaf Child Worldwide’ s strategic objectives and meets agreed quality standards in content, delivery and assessment.
You will have significant experience of training needs assessment, curriculum development and impact assessment in developing countries. You will also demonstrate success at developing and delivering effective training of trainers’ programmes using dynamic, inclusive and participatory approaches in a wide range of geographical locations and cultural contexts.
It goes without saying that you will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to liaise authoritatively with internal and external contacts at all levels and in a variety of cultural settings.
Based in the UK, you will be able and willing to travel to any of the locations in which Deaf Child Worldwide supports programme work.
