The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is the largest global membership organisation dedicated to the fight against cancer. Founded in Geneva in 1933, UICC has over 1200 member organisations in 172 countries. UICC’s mission is to both unite and support the cancer community in its efforts to reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and ensure that cancer control remains a priority on the global health and development agenda. UICC has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and has official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO) and partnerships with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). UICC is committed to working in partnership, and engages over 58 partners, including associations, companies and foundations, to amplify and extend its collective impact. UICC is a founding member of the NCD Alliance, the McCabe Centre for Law & Cancer, the International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP) and established the City Cancer Challenge Foundation in January 2019.
Capacity Building is one of the three core pillars of UICC’s work, alongside Advocacy and Convening. Through the development of specific capacity building initiatives and programmes, UICC aims to foster an influential cancer community with the skills, knowledge, networks and resources to deliver effective cancer prevention and control. The Capacity Building programmes and opportunities offer a wide variety of support to UICC members and the cancer community, including online learning, project grants, individual fellowships, mentoring, technical support and facilitation of connections and networks. These opportunities focus on multidisciplinary themes such as national advocacy, cancer control planning, health systems, organisational leadership and patient engagement.
UICC has been supporting the continuing education of cancer control professionals through online learning since 2014. Starting from a limited number of blended learning opportunities combining an online component with in-person workshops at the World Cancer Congress, UICC’s online learning offer has evolved over the years and now includes a dedicated eLearning platform hosting a range of both self-paced and cohort-based online courses available throughout the year.
As UICC expands its online offer to support its members, it is envisaged that online learning and the development and management of learning communities will play an increasing role in supporting UICC’s strategic priorities, and in enabling an engaged and knowledgeable UICC membership community.
The Learning Community Manager leads the development and facilitation of ongoing, participatory online learning experiences for professionals from across UICC members and communities. S/he is responsible for driving overall engagement on UICC’s eLearning platform, including informing the online learning’s content strategy, encouraging the creation of relevant content by UICC and other key stakeholders, and advising on participatory learning techniques and formats.
Responsibilities will include, but are not necessarily limited to:
Online learning content planning and management
Learning communities’ management and engagement
Impact, communication and partnerships
