EOI : Expert consultant in TVET (Deadline : 17 August 2021)
The Antenna in Sarajevo of the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe is seeking expressions of interest from qualified individuals to support the project "Re-imagining Education for Marginalized Girls and Boys during and post COVID-19 in Bosnia and Herzegovina", by conducting the activity on Providing Guidance on Standards for Quality E-Learning in TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed multiple structural challenges in the education systems of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Among these are a lack of adequate access to E-learning-platforms, quality E-learning resources, as well as a lack of teachers’ capacities and joint standards for quality e-learning and provisions for leaving no-one behind. The project Reimagining Education for Marginalized Girls and Boys during and post COVID-19 unites UNICEF, UNESCO, ILO and UNV in “Delivering as One”. It seeks to strengthen the capacities of education authorities, teachers and trainers in 3 pilot administrative units: Republika Srpska, Una-Sana Canton and West-Herzegovina Canton. The aim is to provide quality and inclusive E-learning and blended learning during and beyond the pandemic as well as to address disadvantaged girls and boys and promote gender-equality.
Within this context, UNESCO and ILO will focus in particular on assisting TVET institutions and authorities in improving E-learning and blended learning. One of the project activities focuses on Supporting education government authorities in development of standards and technical capacities for developing of e-learning platforms for TVET schools.
To accomplish this task, a national consultant will be hired, to:
- develop (in collaboration with an international consultant) a reference document that reviews international and national practices and includes recommendations and practical resources
- conduct a seminar/ workshop for the respective education government authorities.
