We are pleased to announce that we have engaged leading consultants PwC to work with us on the review of our educational programmes.
Why are we having a Programme Review?
We are reviewing our programmes to help us plan ahead. The review of our programmes - the primary way in which we deliver on our mission and vision for growth - is an objective in CISV International's current strategic plan, which was approved by our Members in 2015. Earlier this year, the Governing Board identified this review as our number one priority. We believe that the analysis and recommendations that will result from this process are essential to allow us all to make sound decisions for the future of CISV.
Why are we working with a consultant?
The Governing Board decided to work with an external consultant because this review is central to everything we do, and hope to do - so it deserves as many resources as possible to support it. The team that PwC has put together to work with us specialises in working with Non-Governmental Organizations and other not-for-profit organizations. Their areas of expertise include education, change management, and human resources. Their professional input will complement and build on our own expertise - we know our programmes best, after all!
When will we have the opportunity to have our say?
We will publish the timeline and details of when and how we will consult with you as soon as we have agreed the details with PwC. We will do this by the end of December. We can tell you that we will be consulting with you through surveys early next year, and also in person at the Regional Meetings. We will also organize some focus groups and interviews to help us get a deeper understanding of different experiences and viewpoints from all parts of CISV. We also plan to hold further consultations and discuss findings with you at the Global Conference.
We will be bring you news and regular updates on the review process on this page, so you may wish to 'bookmark' it. Meanwhile, if you have any questions - please send them to the Programme Review Team (Einav and Gustavo from the Governing Board, and Gaby our Secretary General) and they will get back to you. We will add the most frequently asked questions and answers to this page.
