RECRUITMENT OF A CONSULTANT TO UNDERTAKE A TVET MAPPING STUDY TO ENHANCE SKILLS LINKAGE TO THE PRODUCTIVE SECTORS IN AFRICA

  1. Africa requires a skilled workforce to boost technological advancement, increase trade and promote competitive economic growth. Quality skills development is crucial to create innovations that meet the aspirations of the continent’s agenda. This is particularly important because Africa lacks enough quality human resources, technologies and innovations to run its increasingly expanding knowledge-based economy. Technical Vocation Education training (TVET) may play a critical role in response to developing the necessary skill sets, new knowledge, technologies and innovations required to transform the continent’s economy and improve service delivery. For the TVET sector to become a driving force in this endeavor, issues around perception and reputation, low quality, mismatch, and disconnect from the labor market, need to be addressed first. Government support and resources will be required to create and implement policies that will allow TVET institutions to re-engineer their learning platforms and modes of delivery in order to meet the changing skills requirements of the market place. With the advancement in science, technology and innovation (STI), the linkage between TVET and industry is crucial for African institutions with regards to: (1) high quality standards, and (2) relevant and responsive skills development in the light of changing trends of the future of work. Changing technologies and processes, which come with the fourth industrial revolution, require new skills set, which TVET institutions can develop and provide ;
  2. To understand the TVET ecosystem in Africa, there is a need for an in-depth mapping exercise to document and profile the current status with a specific focus on TVET investments, projects, stakeholders, role of the private sector, good practices, and lessons learnt to enhance its contribution to economic transformation of Africa. The findings of the mapping exercise will inform African Development Bank’s investment/intervention in Regional Member Countries and Regional Economic Communities for enhanced integration of TVET as a critical sector of human capital development in Africa.
  3. The African Development Bank therefore invites consulting firms to indicate their interest in the following Assignment: TVET Mapping Study to Enhance Skills Linkage to the Productive Sectors in Africa

  7. Assess projects financed by the Bank in the selected countries, profile the functionality status including relevancy, value proposition, linkages with industries and other sectors and lessoned learned ;
  8. Analyze and assess the linkages and interactions between TVET institutions and the productive sectors, especially on how to make curriculum and pedagogy demand driven by linking up with private sector ;
  9. Make policy and strategic recommendations to the Bank, RMCs, RECs and other stakeholders on how to boost TVET investments/intervention. The mapping will be undertaken in 15 selected African countries with regional representation ;
