DICE Project and Irish Aid: Consultant
The DICE Project and Irish Aid are recruiting a consultant to undertake an independent review of the current management structures and roles within the DICE project, drawing on findings of a 2016/17 external evaluation of the project and taking into account contextual changes of recent years, including a reduced number of partner institutions and changes to the hosting arrangements for the project.
The DICE Project is a national strategic education initiative partnering four institutions involved in initial teacher education (ITE) at primary level, namely Dublin City University Institute of Education (DCU IOE); Marino Institute of Education (MIE); Mary Immaculate College, Limerick (MIC); and the Froebel Department of Primary and Early Childhood Education, Maynooth University (MU). DICE is hosted by DCU, and the project office is situated within the DCU Institute of Education (IOE). The project aims to integrate Development Education and Intercultural Education into ITE programmes and across the Primary School Curriculum.
Irish Aid has provided funding support of €280,000 for the period Sept 2016-Aug 2017. This support is governed by a multi-annual memorandum of understanding (MoU) and a financial contract with Irish Aid. The current MoU and DICE programme of work extends the objectives of the DICE Strategic Plan 2014-16 and covers the period Sept 2016 to August 2018.
Deadline for application is 15 September.
