Development of peacebuilding e-learning modules for youth in Northeast Nigeria 

Our West Africa Programme is seeking a highly innovative and creative consultant or consortium to design an engaging e-learning course focusing on responding to violence and enhancing conflict transformation / peacebuilding skills. This course will be aimed at empowering a virtual network of youth in northeast Nigeria with the confidence and skills to take a central role in peacebuilding initiatives in their communities.

The course will be delivered through WhatsApp and will combine visually engaging and stimulating infographic ‘posters,’ interactive tasks and moderated peer-to-peer discussions. The course will be comprised of eight distinct modules on the themes of:

1.     Introduction to peacebuilding and co-existence at the local level

2.     Inclusion and tolerance

3.     Role of youth in peacebuilding

4.     Personal Safety and risk mitigation strategies

5.     Conflict management styles

6.     Engaging with others in a conflict: Security actors, government actor and other community member

7.     Community awareness raising and mobilisation

8.     Community Resilience

In the creation of the e-learning modules, there are two core strands of work:

  •  Design of the training course contentin collaboration with Conciliation Resources staff members
  • Production of visually appealing and stimulating training materials(including infographics) that can be delivered through WhatsApp 

We are happy to receive applications from individuals/teams applying for one of these two strands or consortiums applying for both strands of the work.
