TVET lecture development for Digital Skills for Jobs and Income tender

The GIZ’s Digital Skills for Jobs and Income (DS4JI) aims to increase the employment prospects of young people, especially women, in an increasingly digitalized South African economy. The project supports the improvement of employability of young people through a comprehensive approach that supports public training providers like TVET Colleges, private training providers and initiatives in training design and delivery as well as SME’s to improve hiring practices and stakeholder engagement. The project is supported by DS4JI’s political partner Department of Communications and Digital Technologies (DCDT).

The TVET support output of the project aims to ensure access to qualitatively improved and demand-oriented training. Although TVET Colleges will have different areas of focus, the digital proficiency development of lecturers will ensure that the institution has a skilled digital workforce with the ability to respond to the fast-paced changes and the proliferation of new technologies.

DS4JI seeks the services of a highly skilled and competent service provider with extensive knowledge and understanding of the TVET Sector and experience in the development and implementation of curricula and training lecturers in the public and/or private sector, especially at higher education institutions to develop and implement Lecturer Development Programmes at South African TVET colleges.
