Extended Term. Terms of reference for the selection of a group of consultants (one national and one international) for curriculum development and delivery of a Continuous Training Program to the personnel of the North Regional Centre for Integrated Assist

Contract Type: Service Provision

Anticipated Consultancy Duration: December 2023 to February 2024

  1. Context

The National Centre for Child Abuse Prevention (CNPAC/NCCAP) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to diminishing the occurrence and impact of violence against children. Our mission encompasses prevention, advocacy, capacity building, and the provision of specialized services.

Following the advocacy initiatives led by CNPAC, on December 27, 2019, the Government of the Republic of Moldova established a specialized assistance service for child victims/witnesses of crime, in line with GD no. 708/2010, which approves the Framework Regulation on the organization and functioning of the Regional Centre for Integrated Assistance to Child Victims/Witnesses of Crime and Minimum Quality Standards. As outlined in paragraph 6 of this regulatory act, the provision of Barnahus-type services is designated for the North, Centre, and South regions of the Republic of Moldova, situated in the municipalities of Balti, Chisinau, and Cahul, respectively. The inaugural regional center of this kind, formed through collaboration between the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection and CNPAC/NCCAP, serves the Northern area of the Republic of Moldova and is located in Balti. Since 2022, CNPAC/NCCAP, under service contracts signed with the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, has been ensuring the operational functionality of the Regional Centre for Integrated Assistance to Child Victims/Witnesses of Crime North. In adherence to the stipulations of paragraph 34 within the Framework Regulation on the organization and functioning of the Regional Centre for Integrated Assistance to Child Victims/Witnesses of Crime, specialists at the Centre are mandated to partake in a continuous training program of no less than 20 hours per year.

In our ongoing commitment to fortify the Barnahus-type service in the Republic of Moldova, the National Centre for Child Abuse Prevention (CNPAC/NCCAP), with the generous support of the World Childhood Foundation, is currently undertaking the implementation of the project “Multidisciplinary Response to Cases of Violence Against Children”. One of the pivotal objectives of the project is to enhance the quality and efficiency of the Barnahus-type Centre’s operations by facilitating annual continuous training for its personnel. In pursuit of this goal, the project involves developing a comprehensive curriculum for the continuous training program and ensuring its effective delivery. Given the relatively recent establishment of the Barnahus-type service in Moldova and the resultant absence of in-house expertise, it becomes imperative to enlist the collaboration of specialists from other European countries possessing extensive experience in delivering the Barnahus-type service. This collaboration is essential for contributing valuable insights and expertise to the formulation of the curriculum for continuous training and the subsequent execution of the training program.

  1. Aim and Objective of the Initiative

The aim of this initiative is to enhance the capabilities of specialists at the Regional Centre for Integrated Assistance to Child Victims/ Witnesses of Crime. This involves ensuring that they possess the requisite competencies and skills to adeptly identify the support needs of child victims/witnesses of crime and to provide specialized assistance accordingly.

The objectives of this initiative encompass the following:

  • Development of a comprehensive curriculum for continuous training, incorporating a well-defined rationale, purpose, and objectives. The curriculum will also delineate the competencies to be developed (with a pronounced emphasis on practical application and seamless integration) and will articulate the aims and conditions of training.
  • Delivery of the continuous training program to the team of North Regional Centre for Integrated Assistance to Child Victims/ Witnesses of Crime (with a duration of 20 hours).

In substance, the content of the continuous training program is intended to enhance the capacities of specialists, fortifying their knowledge, skills, and competencies. This augmentation is intended to empower them to deliver a comprehensive, multidisciplinary response to children within the framework of the Barnahus service. The program will concentrate on, though not exclusively, the following thematic areas: Legislative changes in the domain of Child Protection, with a specific focus on those pertinent to the examination and investigation of offenses against children, as well as the provisions outlined in national policies that pertain to the broader field; Assessment of the Best Interests of the Child within the context of Barnahus assistance; Multidisciplinary approach to assisting child victims/ witnesses of crime within the Barnahus framework; Prevention of professional burnout in the context of working with sensitive subjects, etc.

  1. Terms of Delivery and Deliverables
