EOI - Lesotho - Implementation of the Lesotho Apprenticeship Strategy


The Government of the Kingdom of Lesotho has received financing from the African Development Fund towards implementation of the Economic Diversification Support Project and intends to apply part of the agreed amount for this loan to payments under the contract for consultancy services for the Implementation of the Lesotho Apprenticeship Strategy.

The overall objective of the assignment is to engage a consultancy firm to support implementation of the recommendations of the apprenticeship strategy. In particular, the consultant will assist the tripartite organization to establish a dual-study program whereby the graduates of institutions of higher learning are sufficiently exposed to industry and business practices to match the needs of the market and/or can relatively easily go into self-employment and/or business. The consulting firm will work closely with the tripartite organization to facilitate creation of a governing entity of the dual-study program and develop clear guidelines, rules and procedures to enhance effectiveness of the tripartite organization to oversee implementation of the dual-study program. Furthermore, the firm will develop a dual-study program to create a bridge between academic education, skills development and workplace learning. Finally, as a way of promoting the employment benefits of dual study programme and its three elements (apprenticeship, internship and attachments) and support students, employers and sponsors, the firm will develop a communication and marketing strategy as well as the implementation plan for that strategy.
