Senior Adviser Education - P5

United States of America, New York, New York - UNICEF

Note: Programme Group (PG) is currently undergoing organizational changes, therefore the exact location of the post is still under consideration.  Currently, the post is based in New York but in case the location of the post will change, s/he would be expected to relocate to another location as the case may be, during the contractual period.     UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.   Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.   And we never give up.   The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does - in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life - in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions - her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens - addressing inequity - not only will give all children the opportunity  to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.   For every child, a good education   In support of UNICEF's Strategic Plan, the Education Section (Programme Division) works to advance access, participation and learning outcomes for marginalized children through policy leadership and support to countries for excellence in programming. Gender Equity and Inclusion are key programme priorities, particularly in light of UNICEF's new Education strategy which seeks to accelerate progress towards addressing the learning crisis.   Under the overall guidance of the Global Director of Education, the Senior Education Adviser leads the Gender Equity and Inclusion team in Education Section, and supervises the work of staff within the hub. The Senior Education Adviser works in close collaboration with staff in other hubs in Education Section, other sections in UNICEF, Regional and Country Offices, and external agencies to ensure the successful implementation of UNICEF's Education Strategy.   How can you make a difference?   Tasks will include the following:   Provides overall technical leadership in Gender Equity and Inclusion in education. - Leads on improving equitable and inclusive access to quality basic education, including multiple pathways to learning, using a human rights based approach to programming and working within upstream education policy, social protection and sector wide frameworks. - Directs, coordinates and supervises, in collaboration with internal and external partners, innovative initiatives and programmes for scaling up equitable and inclusive access to quality basic education such as the Out of School Children Initiative (OOSCI) and Inclusive Education for children with disabilities, based on developments at the international, regional and national levels, and analysis and synthesis of data and trends, and corporate priorities. - Facilitates incorporation of corporate priorities into education programmes and collaborates with colleagues in other programmatic sections on inter­ sectoral program development, including early childhood development, child protection, health and nutrition, water and sanitation, disabilities, and social protection, to reflect a comprehensive and holistic and life-cycle focus on access to quality basic education.   Supports regional and country programmes. - Advises, guides and supports education colleagues at country, regional and headquarters' levels on matters concerning education policies and plans, and poverty reduction strategies as they relate to education, including working with partners such as the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and Education Above All (EAA). - Work with the Division of Human Resources to oversee the development of an internal system to upgrade the capacity of UNICEF staff to engage strategically in upstream policy and planning processes. - Oversees the review of regional components of annual, MTR and other reports, CPDs and PBR submissions. Responds to non-specific technical requests and inquiries from Regional and Country Offices. Provides technical support for regional and selected country initiatives and key strategic moments. Prepares briefs on regions, countries and issues for senior management.   Cultivates partnerships with key organisations. - Supports UNICEF's involvement in the GPE partnership at the global level, including the Global Partnership for Education and other partnerships, such as ECW and Education Above All. Contributes to UNICEF's thinking and lead on emerging global initiatives.   Influences the global debate on education. - Initiates new approaches and develop methodologies to best meet goals and objectives. Writes position papers for use in the development of UNICEF global program policy.
