Call for Applications: UIL CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme 2016

Deadline: 30 June 2016

The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is inviting applications for CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme 2016, offering six fellowships in the month of October, to government officials and representatives of civil society organizations working in key positions within the field of adult learning and education (ALE) in UNESCO Member States.

The Fellowship Programme aims at strengthening the capacities of Member States in implementing major elements of the Belém Framework for Action (BFA) and therefore Fellows are selected on the basis of their potential to develop national strategies in their respective countries. Producing such a draft national strategy is the key expected output of the programme.

  • 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.

How to Apply

Interested candidates should submit:

  • A written proposal
  • An updated curriculum vitae
  • A motivational letter

Applications must be submitted via email.
