Description de la mission

The Agence Française de Development (AFD) is working with the Rwandan government to support human capital development, finance economic development that promotes innovation and green growth as well as foster inclusive local development. In 2019, AFD awarded a grant to the Rwandan government to support its employment objective to improve the integration of students into the workplace and skills of the workforce in the district of Rulindo (AFTER I Project). In 2023, AFD continues to support vocational training by financing a higher vocational training institution and Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET) with a focus on the labor market integration of professionals through the project AFTER II: Appui à la formation technique et à l’emploi au Rwanda.

One of the activities envisaged by the AFTER II Project is the development of a TVET strategy in Rwanda, which will provide a national TVET framework with clear directions on established linkages between TVET and pre-vocational delivery, general education, tertiary and higher education, labor market needs and quality service delivery. As the previous strategy expired, there is an urgent need for a new strategy covering the period from 2024-2029.

This consultancy is designed to support the overall sustainability of the TVET system through development of a national TVET strategy. To have an inclusive approach that incorporates the lessons learned, it is paramount that the existing TVET sub sector working groups should be involved in the elaboration of this strategy. The critical aspects of this assignment will include desk review and engagement with education stakeholders, the private sector, and the TVET sub-sector working group to identify gaps, needs, and opportunities, and develop a TVET strategy that aligns with technical improvements in sciences and technology, markets, and modernized training competences.

Description du projet ou contexte

In 2020, Government of Rwanda and AFD signed a Grant Financing Agreement (GFA) to implement AFTER I. The Project supports the training and professional integration of young people in Rulindo district targeting IPRC Tumba and 4 TVET Schools (APEKI, Bushoki, Kinihira and Buyoga TVET Schools). The project started in August 2020 and will run until December 2024.

Carrying on from the success of this first phase, on 8th March 2023, MINECOFIN and AFD signed a 5-year grant/ loan agreements to implement Appui à la Formation Technique et l’Emploi au Rwanda (AFTER II Project). The project aims to contribute to the improvement of teaching and learning conditions in TVET in order to provide youth with quality training adapted to the current demands of the labor market, building on lessons learned and previous experiences. The RP beneficiary sites are IPRC Karongi and IPRC Kitabi. AFTER II will enable the beneficiary IPRCs increase their intake capacity and provide better living and study conditions at the campus through the construction and equipping of classrooms, laboratories and workshops, dormitories, canteens, infirmary, recreational areas, early-childhood development centre, and sports facilities.
