The E4D/SOGA – Employment and Skills for Eastern Africa project in Uganda is looking for a national TVET Advisor to support the implementation of a partnership project with the private sector on work readiness skills development and industry internship placements GIZ’s E4D/SOGA – Employment and Skills for Eastern Africa project is looking for a dynamic, motivated and self-driven team member to support the management of a public private partnership project to improve youth’s employment outcomes with work readiness skills and work exposure.
GIZ is partnering with a financial partner institution and a business association to provide online and face-to-face work readiness trainings as well as to mobilize employers for internship placements for students who have completed the trainings.
The partnership aims to prepare young people for the critical transition from education into the world of work.
The partnership is expected to start in August 2017 and will run for more than 2 years. A work readiness training curriculum has already been developed that helps youth to develop skills across four core areas: work, people, money and entrepreneurial skills.
So far, these trainings are available online and attract mostly university students. The project will establish partnerships with vocational institutions to develop and implement a face-to-face training solution for their students.
It will then facilitate access to internship opportunities at member companies of the business association and beyond.
This public private partnership project forms part of E4D/SOGA’s wider employment promotion programme which works towards bringing youth into employment, increasing incomes and improving working conditions in the country. The E4D/SOGA project runs until the end of 2019.
