💼 Job Specification

Gender and social inclusion specialist 

Rwanda Polytechnics has signed a financial agreement with the French Development Agency (AFD), for the implementation of a pilot project in the district of Rulindo: AFTER Project (Appui à la Formation Technique et l’Emploi à Rulindo). Expertise France, the French Agency for international technical expertise, has been asked to support the implementation of the project until 2024.

The project consists in 3 components:

  • Component 1: Reinforcement of the training offer in IPRC Tumba and TVET around the IPRC:
  • Component 2: Reinforcement and development of schemes to foster professional integration and entrepreneurship in the district
  • Component 3: Technical assistance to the project management and support to the various actors involved in the territorial scheme

At the same time, in relation with the first positive results with AFTER project, the Rwandan authorities, AFD and Expertise France are considering, as early 2023 extending the project to two new districts of Nyamagabe and Karongi – with one IPRC and four TVET schools in each district.

The new phase of the project also aims to scale up the pilot actions of component 2 to the national level, i.e : (i) strengthening the employability of students through better collaboration with employers and better monitoring students during and after their studies (ii) strengthening support for entrepreneurship in IPRCs and TVET schools (iii) strengthening the capacities of the Districts in the follow-up of job seekers and entrepreneurs.

To this end, AFD is mobilizing Expertise France within the framework of the Cap Compétences multi-country facility to conduct the feasibility study for this project.

A team of four consultants will be mobilised:

  • A team leader specialised in project design
  • A TVET specialist
  • A specialist in employment support / professional integration / entrepreneurship
