The Skills Initiative for Africa (SIFA) is a programme of the African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) supported by the German Government.  The programme promotes occupational prospects of young Africans through the support of innovative skills development programmes and close cooperation with the private sector. In order to make advances in providing technical services to the Member States, the AUC and AUDA-NEPAD require technical expertise to further design and implement continental vocational education and training structures, solutions, toolkits and models which will assist them in fully exercising their mandates in the field of vocational education and training. One of the structures identified is for the creation of a WSAfrica desk which will support AU Member States to strengthen the alignment between skills development and industry through capacity building of trainers and experts of countries that are Members of WSI and/or WSAfrica, exchange of best practises, benchmarking and peer learning between Member States. This initiative will contribute to supporting Member States to build the competencies needed to effectively engage and benefit from the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and industralisation drive.

The SIFA team requires the services of a consultancy to support the elaboration of the WSAfrica operational arrangements which include defining the regional membership arrangements, the preparation of a business operating model that allows the AUDA-NEPAD to incubate WSAfrica and be able to collect membership fees whilst also developing a business plan for the Desk to have legal status as do all other regional chapters of WSI. Relatedly this assignment requires elaboration of a branding and communication plan that aligns to both brands of WSI and the AUDA-NEPAD.

GIZ invites eligible and professional companies with a local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender.
