The narrative description of this project remains the same as in COP 2009, with the following changes for COP 2010. PROVINCIAL IMPLEMENTATION AND CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Provincial Capacity Development Plan During FY 2009 the delivery of provincial training was coordinated by an accredited National Training Provider which sub-contracted nine Provincial Training Service Providers (PTSPs). During FY 2010 these nine Provincial Training Service Providers will be capacitated to implement the training independently. Ongoing capacity development will be provided in the areas of local accreditation requirements, monitoring and evaluation, content expertise and adult education methodologies applicable to psychosocial support and child protection curricula. Provincial Roll Out Plan Training will be situated within a Provincial Implementation Plan jointly developed by provincial Departments of Social Development (including district and local officials), PTSPs, the Thogomelo Project and provincial NGOs. The focus will extend beyond delivery of training, to leveraging referrals and networking at local level to promote the sustainability of the training. Changes to Organizational Structure The project's organogram will be amended to meet the objectives and deliverables of the Provincial Implementation and Capacity Building Plan. A National Training Service Provider appointed by Health and Development for Africa (HDA) will oversee the strategic development of the plan, ensure liaison with provincial Department of Social Development (DSD) and oversee the management of PTSPs. This position will be supported by three Provincial Training Coordinators, each of whom will be responsible for the coordination of training in a cluster of three provinces. A Financial Administrative Assistant will be appointed in support of the Finance and Administration Officer to manage the sub-contracts with PTSPs who will be subs of the HDA sub. QUALITY ASSURANCE A process evaluation will take place in FY 2010 to assess the quality of materials and training provided by the project. This will include a base line survey and will be an integral step toward the mid-term evaluation, which will occur in FY 2011. CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT Thogomelo will promote the institutionalization and sustainability of the existing Thogomelo Psychosocial Support Skills Development Program for Community Caregivers. In response to identified needs, Thogomelo will develop a second curriculum for supervisors of the community caregivers. In consultation with Department of Social Development the project plans to develop this curriculum during FY 2010. The supervisor's curriculum will complement the existing community caregiver curriculum thereby providing a coherent package of training and a career path of participants.
