Call for Applications for Committee Mentors

September 11th, 2020

WFD is launching a Committee Mentorship Programme seeking to pair mentors from the UK and ASEAN region with Bangsamoro parliamentary committees. The aim of this mentorship programme is to establish peer-to-peer relationships between international mentors and chairs and members of Bangsamoro parliamentary committees and provide support to perform their core oversight and legislative functions. We invite applications from individuals interested in becoming a part of this programme as mentors.

The mentors will be expected to advise committees on good parliamentary practice as well as provide thematic expertise to help guide their committee business. As this mentorship programme will be conducted remotely given the COVID related travel restrictions, the mentors may be expected to work with local mentors and/or subject-matter experts providing support to the committees in order to ensure that our mentoring support is consistent and benefits from regular follow up. Mentoring committees on performing fundamental oversight activities will be the focus of the programme, and with time mentors will be expected to support committees in conducting legislative scrutiny of bills and post-legislative scrutiny of existing legislation.
