CaLP Looking for Trainer Roster Members

CaLP is currently accepting applications for roster members to support CaLP in the delivery of CaLP-led and CaLP-affiliated trainings globally. CaLP recently undertook an effort to revamp its entire suite of training materials and is now seeking consultants who can deliver those materials effectively.

For each training, the roster consultant will work to contextualize the materials, deliver the training, analyse the training evaluation and submit a training report. Applicants should have expertise and training experience in at least one of CaLP's core competencies, which include Market Analysis Tools.

Given the changes in content of training materials, CaLP will conduct Training of Trainers (ToT) in early 2017. Roster members who will be available to deliver trainings in the first half of the year 2017 and attend the ToT will be considered for framework agreements with CaLP, outlining a schedule of workshops they will be expected to lead. Note that participation in the TOT will be at the consultant’s expense. Also see TOR for CaLP’s capacity building theory of change and course catalogue.

The deadline to apply is January 16th, 2017. More info and application instructions here
