Job Title: ACT Consultant (Coach & Mentor)
Locations: FCT, Lagos, Kano, Sokoto, Edo, Adamawa, Borno and Rivers
Assignment Title: Coaching and Mentoring for selected ACT supported Civil Society Organizations
Pay Band: Part Time
Department: Education & Society
Job Category: Education (non Teaching)
Introduction
  • This Terms of Reference is a call for registered consultants who are skilled in coaching and mentoring for organizational development, to support the capacity of civil society organizations to enhance their current skills or acquiring new skills.
  • Consultants are expected to carry out a work place, face-to-face facilitation process with the Civil Society Organizations, regular, personal meetings. The coaching and mentoring sessions will be short-term and task-based and duration will be determined based on the need of the civil society organizations.
  • This assignment is to support the ACT Programme to strengthen Civil Society Organisational Capacity through coaching and mentoring of ACT Civil Society Partners and also, to contribute to the deliverables listed in this ToR.
  • ACT seeks to engage the services of the coaches and mentors coaches, across 7 states in Nigeria, including FCT, Lagos, Kano, Sokoto, Edo, Adamawa, Borno and Rivers state. to strengthen CSO systems in the following areas:
    • The three-circle model of organisational development (Internal, programme and external capacity areas)
    • CSO Network/coalition development – network specialist skills required  
  • In response to this call for expert coaches and mentors for Organisational Development, consultants are expected to be registered to operate as business entities.
  • Organizations/Consultants interested should send in CVs and expression of interest indicating one of the CSO system strengthening areas highlighted above and submit evidence of relevant work previously done.
  • State-based coaches and mentors are highly preferred, therefore organizations/consultants should indicate location in their application.
Background
The Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) programme was designed by the EU as its response strategy on the need to invest and engage more with the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in 7 states and FCT, Lagos, Kano, Sokoto, Edo, Adamawa, Borno and Rivers States).

Recognizing that strengthened Civil Society actors have great potential to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development in Nigeria if their capabilities as drivers of change are enhanced, the ACT programme will implement innovative actions that will support the strengthening of institutional mechanisms, structures and processes aimed at improving the internal, external and programmatic environments of selected CSOs, networks, and coalitions.

The ACT programme is funded by the European Union under the 11th European Development Fund and is managed by the British Council.  The programme will be implemented over a period of five years from July 2018, with the first 6 months serving as the programme’s Inception Phase for the development of strategies for full programme implementation and will support the EU to strengthen the voice of civil society across all its current programmes.
 
ACT is working with different categories of CSOs including Networks/coalitions who are different level of formation, therefore ACT would support “Emerging” CSOs- These are CBOs that provide services or support to local communities. They do not have organisational systems and processes in place, with very limited financial sources. In some cases, they are only funded by members of the organisation and they may not have a business operational space, thus making it very difficult to comply with registration or other legal requirements for its operations. There is limited evidence of gender and social inclusion mainstreaming.  There is no consideration given to risk, ownership or the sustainability of activities. This category will be supported through Coaching.   

ACT would also facilitate access to Mentoring support to “Developing” CSOs- These are CSOs that provide services or support to their constituents at local, state or national level; they have a system of governance in place, but may struggle to source required resources to be fully functional. There is evidence of Gender and Social Inclusion mainstreaming.

They have acceptable processes in place for management, financial records, plans and may have basic or adequate infrastructure to operate and make efforts to ensure ownership at constituent level.  There is limited focus on sustainability as these CSOs may struggle to attract enough financial and human resources to remain fully functional and may lack some skills to manage and operate the CSO, or to fully mitigate against areas of potential risk. They are compliant with registration requirements but could be at risk of being non-compliant if not supported, are not always able to consider the sustainability of their CSO and are at risk of not accessing the required resources.    
 
Another level of coaching and mentorship support is required for CSO networks/ coalitions in the states- believed to have considerable reach based on the number of NGO memberships they have. Networks are complex, difficult to manage because it involves the governing of members who are autonomous with diverse objectives and goals. Through this support, the networks should learn to build trust of their members and other stakeholders by being open and accountable. Networks must create open lines of communication among members. Networks should have strategy to build technical capacity of members. The networks should be able to coordinate policies/programs.
 
The Objectives of this Assignment
  • The objective of this assignment is to improve selected ACT CSO partners output and enhance the organizational systems and sustainability mechanisms of participating organizations through coaching and mentoring.
Approach and Activities
  • Consultants will be required to provide coaching and mentoring support for:

There is limited evidence of gender and social inclusion mainstreaming.  There is no consideration given to risk, ownership or the sustainability of activities.
    • Organizations that provide services or support to their constituents at local, state or national level; they have a system of governance in place, but may struggle to source required resources to be fully functional.

They are compliant with registration requirements, but could be at risk of being non-compliant if not supported, are not always able to consider the sustainability of their CSO and are at risk of not accessing the required resources.    
  • The Consultant will work with teams and individuals on a one-to-one basis in an organization using a task-oriented methodology to enable the organizations develop specific skills and behaviours necessary to strengthen their operating systems
  • The consultant will be guided by the report of the capacity assessment, already conducted by ACT, to come up with an extensive plan required for the organizational coaching and mentoring.
