JOB POST: Consultant, Vocational Education and Training for Vulnerable Groups in Eastern Europe, Bulgarian Roma
Subject: [Bulgarian Roma] Job: Consultant, Vocational Education and Training for Vulnerable Groups in Eastern Europe
A Washington D.C based government contractor is looking for a consultant to compose a report for USAID regarding vocational education and training in Eastern Europe for vulnerable groups, specifically people with disabilities.
The report, work on which would start in immediately, will include two major sections, one addressing training for people with disabilities and the second, training for institutionalized adolescents who will graduate from institutions. Both of these sections of the report should contain a review of best practices and lessons learned from vocational and job skills training programs for persons in the group. As much as possible, this review should rely on information from programs that have been evaluated and on information from programs that have been implemented in the E&E region (although these do not need to have been implemented by USAID). The report should also include a very concrete guide and set of recommendations for Missions who wish to program in this area. These recommendations should include practical, “how-to” advice including a discussion of the conditions that are necessary for these types of programs to be successful, descriptions of types of programs that seem to work best, links and other references to strong model programs so that readers can easily access more information, etc.
Previous experience with writing reports for USAID while certainly and advantage, is not necessarily a must, as long as the candidate has a proven record of producing reports for other governmental agencies, international organizations, and NGOs. The key qualities would be expertise in vocational education and training for people with disabilities in Eastern Europe, the ability to gather and analyze cross-county data from the region, and good writing skills.
