BACKGROUND



The overall goal of the JPO Programme is to enhance the development and aid coordination work of UNDP Country Offices and oth
er UN partner
organizations. JPOs serve primarily in one of the
UNDP
country offices
, regional centres or HQs locations
. Under the
supervision of a senior staff
member, JPOs work with international and national staff and are involved in the identification, design, implementation, monit
oring and
evaluation of the UN
DP

programmes. Purposes of assignments vary and may have a country
-
specific, regional, sector
-
based or thematic focus.


The objectives of the UNDP JPO Programme are three
-
fold:



to provide young professionals the opportunity to gain experience in the field o
f international development cooperation and
management, and as such to build capacities for the global development sector;



to provide UNDP with talented young professionals to contribute to the objectives of the
O
rganization;



to
support the fight against p
overty and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).


The JPO Programme

always

contribute
s

to the implementation of the UNDP
’s s
trategic
p
lan
s and activities.

The Programme allow
s
UNDP to tap
into knowledge, networks and young talent, wh
ich contribute
s

to the development of policy approaches and implementation of programmes.

The JPO Programme rep
resents a significant window of

additional contributions to UNDP from donors, and it has contributed to augmenting
professional staff capacity a
nd provided
the Organization with

access to human resources with recognised talent, up
-
to
-
date knowledge and
academic credentials.



OBJECTIVES OF THE JPO
ORIENTATION

PROGRAMME


One of the key objectives of the JPO Programme is to build the capacity among young professionals to work with multilateral d
evelopment
cooperation for future employment with the UN or the international development cooperation sector. Therefore, learning p
lays a key role
throughout the JPO assignment.
As JPOs are assigned to different practice areas and come with different learning needs, their learning
throughout the assignment is highly flexible and self
-
paced to cater to each JPO’s specific learning need
s and interests. JPOs each have a
dedicated learning budget which is allocated by the donor country to support individual learning needs
. Many

JPOs apply a blended learning
approach when determining their JPO learning plan.

July 2011

However, all JPOs share the sa
me learning needs in the beginning of their assignment. As the majority of JPOs have no previous experience from
working with the UN
,

they need support in their induction into UNDP.

Therefore, i
n order to support the JPOs in effectively taking up their ne
w assignments with a UNDP country office, regional office or
Headquarters office, the JPOs will be supported through a JPO
Orientation

Programme during the first six months of their assignments.

The objectives of the JPO
Orientation

Programme are to:

1.

i
ntr
oduce the JPOs to UNDP as an
organization (structure, policy, programmes and operations)

2.

support JPOs in completing
the
UNDP
mandatory online courses
,

as well as introduce them to UNDP Competency Framework related
online courses

3.

support the JPOs in taking
up their assignment

with a new organization and in a new country



The JPO
Orientation

Programme will be based on
a
blended learning approach

and its duration will be six months
.

July 2011

Added value of the Programme


This initiative is closely related to the UNSSC’s mandate to foster a common management culture in the UN System. By targetin
g the youngest
end of the professional demograp
hic, it seeks an impact on the leaders of tomorrow by ensuring a strong start to their careers. Some young
professionals may have immediate management tasks such as supervision, while others may only move into such roles at a later
point in their
careers.
In any case, those remaining within the UN System after their initial assignment will continue to fill in the numerous gaps l
eft by a
rapidly aging professional

population. A solid base to continue career
-
long learning will help these young professionals become the future
managers and leaders of the System.


The benefits deriving from this initiative are multifaceted: From the individual’s point of view, partici
pants benefit from developing a range of
skills and knowledge considered essential for an assignment within the UN. In addition, participants usually develop a curios
ity for further
learning and development of their work
-
related skills.


From an organizat
ional perspective, UN bodies benefit from receiving well
-
prepared individuals, which are capable of contributing to the
respective goals of the organization much sooner. In particular, workplace skills such as communication, meetings management
and
multicu
ltural awareness have a clear impact on the capacity of new staff members to integrate in their respective teams.


Finally, from a national perspective, this initiative offers sponsoring and seconding authorities a unique opportunity to ben
efit from a tru
ly
multicultural programme, which mirrors the environment in which their nationals will have to operate. A programme boasting a
proven
curriculum and supported by a number of well
-
tested resource persons, which can also assist new staff in establishing val
uable professional
relations for their future career.

Self

study learning guides
: Low

tech & low

cost learning avenue

it has

a lot of merit as part of a comprehensive learning blend. Self
-
study doesn’t have to
involve a solitary environment, a lot of reading and a distinct application of new information. Rather, provide a mix of enga
g
ing
reading material, simulations (via
Skil
lsoft

Courses), and online and on in the field activities
, support it with online collaboration tools and virtual workshops, and this becomes an interactive
element to support the curriculum.


Web

based training
: Rich experiences are essential to meeting the learning needs of JPOs. Digital Storytelling (you may find an example of Digi
tal Storytelling at
http://digitalstorytelling.coe.uh.edu/
) and
simulations
(via
Skillsoft

Courses)
in e

learning

help to create rich, layered, relevant experiences. This simu
lated
environment offers learners a safe place to discover appropriate actions by applying new knowledge and skills to specific sit
uations. By using both fo
rmats in
tandem, learners build founda
tional knowledge and comprehension, and begin to apply new skills and even analyze through reasoning. In the end, we’re helpi
ng
JPO to think with new knowledge in their real day
-
to
-
day situation. This approach is desi
gned to provide highly relevant training, in a manner directly
transferable to job performance.


Web
-
based discussion forums
:

Online discussion forums offer learners optimum scheduling flexibility. They can visit the forum when it’s convenient for the
m

virtually any time, from almost anywhere

reflect on concepts in threaded discussions, and then respond in their own time. That e
xtra time available for
reflection often results in deeper interaction with concepts and a broader examination of differing perspectives.


Online workshops
: The learners will participate in a short workshop where they can apply what they’ve studied in a c
ollaborative session with their peers. Make
the session relevant to its preced
ing self
-
study modules by giving learners the chance to apply some of their new knowledge in a skill
-
practice session.


Face

to
-
face workshops
: To have the deeper impact on lea
rning, blends incorporate a face
-
to
-
face social learning component. Bring participants into a
workshop for a 5 full day once mid
-
way through the program. Removing them from daily work and personal responsibilities means that they can designate a full,
uni
nterrupted time for learning and networking with their peers.
Group activities, role playing, skill appli
cation, immediate and relevant feedback

and the
camaraderie gained from bringing together individuals with common goals are what make this delivery fo
rmat added
-
value.

Through this comprehensive blended curriculum, we aim to address the needs of JPOs. The learning mix we’ve created provides a

formal program, delivering
consistent content with the creative and varied approach required to reach today’s e
merging workforce.
