Result of Service

The consultant will support ITS in enhancing the CPTM, particularly in providing substantive review and best practices advisory on enhancing multi-layered thematic and substantive peacekeeping content. The result of the service is a full set of reviewed and substantively revised Core Pre-Deployment Training Materials that is accessible to all military, police and civilian personnel preparing to deploy to UN peacekeeping missions. The set contains 30 lessons with supporting materials including learning activities, slides and guidance to the trainer. All materials will need to be substantively reviewed and analyzed for both subject matter content and clarity and prepared for roll-out to Member States. The CPTM serves as the essential knowledge all peacekeepers are required to have in order to deploy to UN peacekeeping missions. As the target audience—including soldiers and police officers from troop- and police- contributing countries—has varied reading and writing levels in English, the consultant will be required to apply a holistic approach to apply standards and requirements in order to ensure that complex and multi-layered content remains at a 12th grade level understandable by all deploying personnel, without losing content meaning, substance and key messages.
