Expression of Interest are invited for Market Assessment: Concept Development for PNG Technical Training Center for Women. The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector. Working with private enterprises in about 100 countries, we use our capital, expertise, and influence to help eliminate extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. Papua New Guineas technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system is not yet able to adequately meet the needs of industry and employers. Over 50,000 young people enter the labour market each year, while only a few thousand formal jobs are created, and there are five times the number of Grade 12 graduates than university places. Women remain significantly under-represented in the labour force and in technical training courses. Despite growth in post-secondary education enrolment in the last five years, no significant increase has occurred for women - indicating that much more can be done. Retention rates of women enrollees are lower than those of men, suggesting women face further impediments after they enroll. Objectives To address both the skills gap and the gender gap, IFC, in partnership with construction company Rhodes PNG, is exploring the possibility of establishing a technical training college for women in PNG. Rhodes PNG has identified a site located at their Napa Napa campus, outside of Port Moresby, and have indicated they are interested in donating that site for use as a womens technical training college. IFC is now at the stage of conducting a detailed market assessment which will feed into the development of a detailed business plan for the proposed training college (Womens TVET project). The objective of this assignment is to conduct a landscape analysis and market study to assess the feasibility of the proposed Womens TVET Project. It will include an assessment of the industry demand for skills and commitment toward supporting improved supply of skilled workers; , the current training supply in PNG; as well as the challenges and opportunities for women to access more and better training, and ultimately to access jobs. This assignment also aims to raise awareness of the project and obtain initial buy-in from industry. Outputs under this assignment will be use to canvass potential investors and inform a go/ no go decision prior to developing a full business plan FUNDING SOURCE The World Bank Group intends to finance the assignment / services described below under the following: - BANK BUDGET - MFAT PNG Partnership II ELIGIBILITY Eligibility restrictions apply: [Please type list of restrictions] INDIVIDUAL / FIRM PROFILE The consultant will be a firm.
