Job Summary

The position of Training of Trainers Advisor will manage the implementation of an interagency project meant to provide support across partner agencies in East and Southern Africa. World Vision is an active member of the interagencyTraining of Trainers (TOT) Working Group (WG), which is a working stream within the sector-wide Learning & Development (L&D) Collaboration Group. WVI has made a significant contribution to the development of the TOT framework leveraging previous WVI internal work in this area. Save the Children, another key member of the WG submitted a proposal to fund a pilot TOT Programme, to IKEA with which they have a 10 year funding agreement and receive tranches of funds every three years for various L&D initiatives across the Save the Children partnership.

The aim of this project is to build a wider pool of high-quality expert trainers in the humanitarian sector. These trainers will a) enable the continued roll-out of our highly-regarded capacity building programmes; but also, b) deliver short, bespoke, ‘unpackaged’, modularised versions of these for Country Offices at scale using our expanding bank of humanitarian training curricula. This is to ensure that high quality learning programmes can take place at all levels but especially, the field level. This position would build the capacity of staff to facilitate humanitarian learning across organizations and across the two regions.


Design and Implementation:

  1. Adapt TOT curriculum to the East Africa Region (EAR)/South Africa Region (SAR) context.
  2. Plan, design and deliver the Training of Trainer workshops following the framework and roll out of bronze, silver and gold training activities.
  3. Monitor and coach all learners in their learning requirements (building a learning portfolio) in order to certify them and oversee their advancement from one level to the next.
  4. Liaise and plan with silver and gold trainers to identify opportunities for skills building and matching them as coaches for less skilled learners.
  5. Work with INGO partner, Humentum ( who will provide the online facilitation component to ensure that it is adequately delivered and learners are monitored for progress.

  1. Identify opportunities where the TOT can be leveraged against other L&D opportunities in the region to maximize impact (among NOs, inter-agency forums, L&D regional networks).
  2. Engage and build interagency relationships with a goal of promoting the TOT project.
  3. Identifying potential trainers and potential trainees through liaising with other agencies among NOs, inter-agency forums and L&D regional networks.
  4. Liaising with the Global ToT Manager and WAR ToT Advisor to update and share experiences and networking opportunities.

Monitor Project Effectiveness and Key Learnings:
  1. Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the project (through observation and follow up) and capture key learnings for dissemination to partner agencies.
  2. Make recommendations to change or adapt the project based upon key learnings.
  3. Work with Global ToT Manager and WAR ToT Advisor to collate lessons learned in the four regions (East, South, West and Central Africa) and share in appropriate NGO fora (i.e. Interagency L&D Working group, Africa Humentum conference, Localization Summit, etc.)
  4. Any other duties as required.
