CPMS E-course WxS Expansion

BACKGROUND: The global Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action supports the efforts of humanitarian actors to achieve high-quality and effective child protection interventions in both refugee and non-refugee humanitarian contexts. One of its work streams is to strengthen quality and accountability in humanitarian child protection programming through the promotion, implementation and institutionalization of minimum standards (CPMS).

Over the past 3 years, the CPMS Working Group has developed a free, introductory e-course with 4 mandatory modules and 14 optional ones. Its primary audience is child protection actors (in both humanitarian and non-humanitarian contexts), as well as other humanitarian colleagues (i.e. Education, WASH, Nutrition). Most users are in entry level positions (though 1⁄3 are at mid-level) and work at the country, regional or global level. It appears on Kaya, UNICEF’s internal Agora platform and we are working for it to be featured on Disaster Ready as well. It will be launched in Spanish & Arabic in Summer 2022; it has been translated into French and is awaiting funds for digitalisation.

OBJECTIVE: Save the Children Sweden (on behalf of the CPMS Working Group) is looking for a digital learning company to expand its e-course through the development of three 30 minute modules, which will ultimately be developed in 4 languages (English, French, Spanish & Arabic).

SCOPE OF WORK: The company will be provided with a folder of background materials, and will need to use them to design the modules, as well as to complement them with assessment tools to enhance the learning experience. The scope of work is to produce a SCORM file for each module based on the text of the CPMS and a range of existing materials from Alliance members and other subject matter experts.

The new modules should fit seamlessly into the existing e-course (using opening and closing sequences, existing images / animation / assessment formats /etc.), though be shorter/tighter at 30 mins. This will then need to be repeated in French, Spanish and Arabic. The development process will be led by a Focal Point within the CPMS Working Group/Save the Children and require working closely with the L&D WG co-leads and indirectly a team of experts in various
technical, humanitarian areas.


  • Agreement on initial outline
  • Access to existing training and technical resources (videos, images, activities, PPT)
  • Introductions to relevant actors for background information and potential interviews
  • Translation of scripts, with as many links to supplemental materials as possible
  • Management of feedback process in a timely manner

DELIVERABLES & TIMELINE: Kindly note that there is some flexibility in dates as the development (and
translation) of each module will be staggered so that the digital learning company is not overwhelmed.
