BACKGROUND

FHI 360 and partners, International Research and Exchange Board (IREX), Education for Employment (EFE) and Golden Resources (GR), are implementing the USAID CAREER CENTER in Morocco. The activity is being implemented in close coordination with Government of Morocco (GOM) counterparts, the Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research. USAID CAREER CENTER is playing a central role in advancing USAID/Morocco and the GOM’s broader goal of increasing the employability of young Moroccans. The project has been establishing in three regions (Casablanca, Marrakech, Tangier) six pilot Career Centers linked to universities and the vocational training system, and incorporating work readiness training into the Moroccan tertiary education system, vocational training system, and workplaces where these skills contribute to the employability and performance of youth in the workplace.

 

To ensure that international best practice continues to inform the ongoing support to the USAID career centers and new centers being opened in country, IREX currently recruits local and international experts in target training and capacity building areas. In order to ensure the success of the USAID Career Centers and fulfill IREX’s responsibilities under the work plan, IREX has identified a need for a consultant with appropriate expertise and background in human resources, management, and/or career services to develop three Training of Trainers-style workshops to deliver to USAID Career Center staff in Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangier.

The Workshop Development Consultant will be responsible for:

  1. The development and delivery of two ToT workshops to be delivered for new career counselors and directors in Rabat during an initial training session on December 14, 2018.

  1. The development and delivery of 3 ToT workshops to be delivered at the USAID Career Centers in three target regions (Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangier) from December 17-26, 2018 as part of the continuous professional development training plan. It is estimated that the consultant will need to develop 3 hours per ToT workshop content for the students sessions that will then be 2 hours each.
