Project Background

“EU Libya Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Delivery and Development” is an EU funded, British Council implemented project, which aims to improve capacity and provide quality technical and vocational education and training in Libya, and to improve the quality of content and relevance of education and training to meet the demands in the labour market. Originally started in January 2013 and suspended due to “force majeure” in October 2014, the project has now been re-launched, with a team in Libya and Tunisia.

The reactivated implementation will continue to develop capacity and methodologies for the TVET offer in Libya in line with real demand for skills in the Libyan economy. It will also focus on supporting the establishment of Centres of Excellence in a limited number of TVET institutions. Activities in these Centres of Excellence will include:

  • Capacity building in leadership and management
  • Raising the skill levels of teachers
  • Providing relevant advice and guidance to graduates and the unemployed
  • Improving collaboration and understanding between education and business.

As a result, the Centre of Excellence institutes will be better equipped to provide higher quality training that is more relevant and matched to the needs of local employment.

Overall Result Areas of the programme are as follows:

  • Result Area A: Enhance the quality and relevance of training provision in a selected number of TVE schools to meet the social and economic needs of the community (Centres of Excellence)
  • Result Area B: Reinforce capacity of the main stakeholders representing the demand side such as employers’ organisations, syndicates and others to play an active role in the modernisation of the TVE system
  • Result Area C: Dissemination of project success and lessons learned informs wider initiatives at a national level and provide resources for further development of Centres of Excellence in additional municipalities.

Purpose of the consultancy

Education is a fundamental right in societies. Training serves a variety of purposes. Ultimately, education and training are geared to facilitate the transition from the area of learning to the area of employment.

This Project is supporting this transition process in the area of career information, counselling and guidance, as solid knowledge about jobs and markets is imperative to make the transition successful. This embraces knowledge about the typical profile of occupations, their competency requirements, but also underlying trends of changes in those profiles, often driven by technology changes.

Well-designed career information, advisories and guidance (CIAG) is instrumental to reduce the risks associated with the career decision, namely the selection of a job for practical and theoretical study, or (in the case of a job- holder) for a new job. Relevant CIAG services not only assist the individual but also have benefits for the community and even the society at large. If there are jobs waiting to be filled with qualified workers, but the information is not available to job seekers, productivity will suffer. Similarly, individuals looking for employment will be negatively affected by the lack of relevant information. It is therefore mandatory that existing initiatives and systems providing labour market information and job profiles are analysed, structured and synthesized. This will form a major building block in a concise and effective TVET system.

The overall purpose of the works under these TOR is to strengthen the development of career information, advisory and guidance services (CIAG) across Libya. The team of consultants will strengthen existing initiatives in the area of CIAG and build a concise network of job market information, initially at local/ regional level.

  • Support the mapping process of existing career guiding (CIAG) services, in terms of approach (methodology), relevance, gaps, potential partners, covering the targeted localities, jointly with Centres of Excellence TVET Institutes supported under this Project;

  • contribute to the sustainability of the CIAG services by supporting the development of the CIAG toolkit and other measures;
