Background World University Service of Canada (WUSC) and Canadian Leaders in International Consulting (CLIC) have been jointly awarded a grant from Global Affairs Canada to implement the project “Bolstering Reconstruction in Iraq Through Development, Growth and Employment” (BRIDGE). The Project’s goal is to improve the employment status of male and female youth, and women in selected sectors and governorates of Iraq. The two key outcome results of the Project are: (i) improved delivery of gender responsive and market relevant Vocational Training; and (ii) improved employability of targeted male and female youth and women. BRIDGE is addressing the need for short-term stabilization of Iraq by helping beneficiaries integrate into the labour market. It will also support the ongoing reform of the Vocational Education and Training Sector. Nature and Scope BRIDGE wishes to retain a consultant who will review existing material and/or develop new material for the entrepreneurship modules and implement training to build the capacity of key government stakeholders (including the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Governorates, and vocational training centers) to integrate the entrepreneurial components into the CBT courses being delivered at BRIDGE’s VTC partner institutions. This training will be the final component of the cohort courses, meaning that delivery would need to take place in June/July 2020 for the first cohorts of students. Specific tasks will include: ● Review the content of the Competency-Based Curricula prepared by BRIDGE. ● Review, revise, and develop the material of the entrepreneurial program that had been developed by UNESCO (“I am a pioneer”). ● Re-adapt and develop the content/ components of the “I am a Pioneer” module to be consistent with the principles and approach of the BRIDGE Project, i.e. gender sensitive. ● Identify and include any additional components needed for the program. ● Propose and design a training program for the delivery of the entrepreneurial program for instructors. ● Design selection criteria for the life skill instructors. ● Prepare and conduct training workshops for the life skill instructors. ● Design capacity assessment tools for the targeted instructors. ● Develop guidelines for the life skill instructors on delivery of the program. ● Provide technical support during the implementation of the entrepreneurial program ● Follow up and monitoring as needed. Location Home based and in in-country (mainly Baghdad) The BRIDGE team will arrange for the Consultant’s in-country transportation and will also provide interpretation during meetings and training sessions as needed. The Consultant will be responsible for his/her own arrangements for insurance coverage while in Iraq.
