VSO is the world’s leading international development charity that works through volunteers to create a fair world for everyone. At VSO we pride ourselves on doing development differently. We fight poverty not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions. We bring key stakeholders together to co-ordinate collective action, from local organisations to national governments. Our programmes in Africa and Asia focus on health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience, peace building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change that will improve the lives of generations to come.
VSO Cambodia now wants to hire a well-qualified Cambodian consultant to upgrade and consolidate the existing lesson plans into a comprehensive manual (in Khmer). The training manual should also have a section explaining what Competency Based Training (CBT) is and why it is relevant in our context, show an overview of the entire curriculum in diagram form (tasks broken down to the level of individual competencies), and show areas that are still to be completed if all necessary competencies are to be covered. This can be prepared in cooperation with VSO’s International Volunteer (IV) who has been working with the TVET trainers. Lesson plans that still need to be completed may be slotted in at a later date, either within the RECOVER project, or by future users of the training manual.
Competencies and Behaviour
At VSO we believe progress is only possible by working together. Whether you want to join us as an employee, or as a volunteer working in your own country, overseas or online, our selection process includes an assessment based on these core competencies:
• Ability to be open minded and respectful
• Ability to be resilient and adaptive to new situations

• Ability to seek and share knowledge
VSO promotes equal opportunities and values a diverse workforce.

The self-assessment module typically takes about 10 minutes to complete.
After completing the VSO Values self-assessment, you can opt out or proceed with the application process. You will need to upload your CV in Word or PDF format detailing your employment and educational history, and any volunteering experience.

You will be shown instructions and example questions prior to the assessments to help you increase your familiarity with them. You will also have access to a short profile report on completion of the assessment. Your application will be reviewed by our Resourcing Team when you have completed these assessments.
