Plan is one of the oldest and largest children's development organisations in the world. We work in 48 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas to promote child rights and lift millions of children out of poverty. Plan's vision is of a world in which all children realise their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity, our aim is to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries. Plan is independent, with no religious, political or governmental affiliations.
About the role
Plan's strategy to 2015 seeks to reach as many children as possible, particularly those who are excluded and marginalised, with high quality programmes that provide long lasting benefits. Important in the realisation of this goal is an approach to development and emergency work in which the views, rights and protection of children is central. Plan calls this the Child Centered Community Development Approach (CCCD). Plan believes that the quality of its work relies on the proper use of this approach. In order to ensure that there is consistency in the use of this approach across the work of the organisation, Plan has devised a related strategic project called The Plan Academy.
The Plan Academy will endeavour to improve core knowledge, skills, behaviour and practices around child rights based community development at all levels of the organisation be it in the field, within the National Organisations or at International Headquarters.
Reporting to the Project Lead (currently the Country Director of Plan Bangladesh), the PAPM will manage the Plan Academy project implemented by the Project Working Group, ensuring cost-effective delivery of the project goals.
