The Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) and the Directorate General of Early Childhood and Community Education (DG EC&CE) are preparing to establish a SEAMEO Centre for Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) and Parenting Education in Indonesia (the Centre) and for that Centre to become, overtime, a regionally recognized center of excellence.
The Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has committed to support to the DG EC&CE in this effort by providing a technical assistance package to help the Directorate General EC&CE to articulate a comprehensive and robust strategy to develop an Indonesia based and supported international standard Centre for early childhood education and parenting that would serve both Indonesia and the SEAMEO community.
To support MoEC’s DG EC&CE in the establishment of a SEAMEO Centre for Early Childhood Education and Parenting Education in Indonesia, we are opening two National Technical Assistance positions:
1. A specialist in Parenting Education
2. A specialist in Early Childhood Education
The specialists should have experience in the adaptation of good international and local good practice and innovative approaches to the ASEAN context. They are also required to have at least of five years of highly relevant experience and an appropriate level of post-graduate education, and demonstrate that they have a thorough understanding of the Indonesian education system and of the current reform agenda of the MoEC and that they have previously worked in a consultancy role in the sector in the area of ECCE or parenting or at a SEAMEO Centre.
The consultancy will first work with the DG EC&CE to establish the vision, mission, and preferred option for the organizational structure of the Centre. Once agreement is reached with MoEC’s leadership on these three essentials elements of the Centre’s purpose, the consultancy will complete a feasibility study for the Centre and, drawing the results of the feasibility study, a proposal for the Centre that DG EC&CE will present to the SEAMEO Senior Officials Meeting in November.
1. A task plan
2. A feasibility study report on the establishment of SEAMEO Centre for Early Childhood Education and Parenting Education in Indonesia
