Term of Reference: Technical Vocation Education Training Specialist 
 
Background: Save the Children is rolling out a 3 year DFID funded project across four sites in Mandera County. 

The project seeks to build the resilience and adaptive capacities of vulnerable households, communities and government systems in Northern Kenya in the face of shocks or stresses. 

The project’s key outcome is that communities in northern Kenya will have increased incomes, assets, and skills to sustainably reduce their vulnerability to shocks and stresses by the end of the three year project. 

The project aims to achieve this outcome through three outputs:
  1. Households have improved livestock productivity through access to production system inputs and community assets;
  2. Women and youth from targeted households have received skill and asset building inputs enabling them to sustainably diversify their sources of income;
  3. County government systems for community development are strengthened and supporting community-led initiatives.
To improve the economic inclusion of youth (young men and women) the project conducted a labour market assessment. The assessment identified various skills development (e.g. technical and vocational training) to enable youth access available livelihood opportunities. 

Skills development shall be done through the existing Polytechnics (or Vocational Training Centre). This activity will also be informed by the gender mapping and analysis which was undertaken last year. 

The aim is to ensure social relations relative to changing livelihood patterns are understood and that a “Do No Harm” approach is adopted, particularly for young women taking up more independent roles in income earning. 

Part of the skills training shall seek to enhance uptake of the youth fund in Mandera County as this has been found extremely low. 

This output has been delayed in terms of implementation by period of 11 months and was dependant on the Labour market assessment findings. 

So as to ensure that this output in on course, the project urgently requires a TVET specialist to come on board in the shortest time possible for a period of 6 months to set up and fast track the project deliverables. 

Purpose: The main objective of the assignment of the TVET Specialist is to provide overall technical guidance for efficient and effective delivery of appropriate Technical and Vocational Training to identified male and female youth. 

S/he shall work closely with Arid Lands Support Progamme (ASP) team to deliver expected outputs. 

S/he will report directly to the ASP Project Coordinator. 

Duties and responsibilities of the TVET Specialist:
  • Based on findings from labour market assessment, identify and design most appropriate (consider male and female youth) TVET and skills development relevant and matched to available market opportunities in Mandera County. 
  • Provide overall technical guidance to identified Youth Polytechnics or Vocational Training Centres, Polytechnic Committees/boards and develop ASP TVET implementation process including consultations with training providers, employer organizations, apprenticeship providers, worker organizations, youth groups and relevant government ministries.
  • Specify and ensure implementation of quality standards in delivery of identified vocational training and skills development to targeted youth.

  • Compile and submit progress reports or contribute to the periodic project records, as required.
