SEED Foundation in coordination with Salahuddin University’s social work department is implementing the ‘Protecting and Empowering Survivors of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI)’ program. This program is supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The aim of the program is to build the next generation of social workers in the KRI by equipping undergraduate students in social work with the knowledge and skills to support vulnerable people, including survivors of GBV and those at risk and to better prepare social work graduates for employment.
Following completion of an assessment for the social work department, SEED’s technical experts will now work closely with faculty at Salahaddin University to strengthen the curriculum through the development of additional content, including gender, gender equality, GBV, and psychosocial support, and adapting global resources to the local context and needs.
Objective of Consultancy
SEED seeks an expert in practical social work skills to design new, or strengthen current, skills-based practical modules within existing courses in years 2, 3, and 4 of the undergraduate social work program at Salahaddin University. The expert will develop a series of courses and train faculty on teaching the courses to ensure students are well equipped in a variety of topics including but not limited to: communication and listening skills, building rapport with clients, assessment, coordination, and case management skills.
