Coaching for Refugee & Migrant Community Organisations

Deadline: 10th July 2019

In 2017 and 2018, UNHCR Malta provided capacity-building training for refugee and migrant community organisations (ReMCOs). To further support the strengthening of organisational capacities, UNHCR Malta will fund coaching sessions for ReMCOs in 2019. The aim of this coaching exercise is to provide tailored support to enhance leadership capacities, encourage further independent action and to share technical advice.

The adjustment from training to coaching is based on requests and feedback from representatives of ReMCOs for one-to-one support, to address their respective organisation’s specific challenges, which may not be fully addressed in a larger group setting. Participating organisations are expected to be committed to and sincerely engaged in this coaching exercise by ensuring regular attendance, active participation and timely follow-up actions.

The number, regularity and duration of coaching sessions which can be offered will be determined by the number of successful applications. Submitted applications will be assessed by a multi-functional team.

The scheduling of the coaching sessions for successful applicants will be done jointly by the coach and ReMCOs. In order to ensure organisational support and commitment of the individuals involved in this exercise, ReMCOs must put forward three to four representatives who are genuinely interested in coaching so as to ensure that at least two representatives are available for each session.  The sessions shall be delivered in the premises of the participating ReMCOs. Coaching plans will be devised between the trainer and respective ReMCOs based on the latter’s needs.
