UNESCO Institute of Lifelong Learning: Applications Open for CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme 2017

Deadline: 15 June 2017

The UNESCO Institute of Lifelong Learning (UIL) is currently accepting applications from government officials and representatives of civil society organizations for its CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme to support the implementation of the commitments made at CONFINTEA VI.

The Fellowship Programme aims to strengthen the capacities of Member States in implementing major elements of the Belém Framework for Action (BFA). Fellows are, therefore, selected on the basis of their potential to develop national strategies in support of ALE in their respective countries. A draft proposal for a national strategy is the key expected output of the programme.

Eligibility Criteria

  • CONFINTEA Fellowships are offered to government officials or representatives of civil society organizations working in key positions in the field of adult learning and education (ALE) in UNESCO Member States, particularly those in the Global South. UIL seeks geographical (regional and national) and gender balance when awarding CONFINTEA Fellowships.
  • Candidates for CONFINTEA Fellowships should:
    • Have extensive experience – whether in government or civil society or as a researcher – in adult learning and education
    • Be involved in policy formulation or in planning and implementing programmes at national level; in addition, involvement in national activities related to the preparations for, implementation of, or follow-up to CONFINTEA VI would be an asset
    • Have fluent spoken and written English and, ideally, a working knowledge of another United Nations or UNESCO language
  • UIL strongly encourages applications from francophone countries.

How to Apply

Applicants must submit the following documents:

  • A written proposal for a national ALE strategy in line with the Belém Framework for Action (max. 3 pages).
  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae.
  • A covering letter.

All required documents must be submitted online via given website.
