Improving Work Opportunities For Young People in The Commonwealth (I-Work)

This project addresses the ‘a fairer future’ theme of the Commonwealth Summit with emphasis on promoting the interests of the 60% of the Commonwealth’s population who are under 25. The objective of the project is to improve the employment prospects of young people, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, by piloting and introducing new approaches to employer led skills development. By promoting good practice, partnerships and mutual learning between Commonwealth member states at a policy and delivery level we will drive improved opportunities for youth whilst raising the knowledge and understanding of the Commonwealth and strengthening relationships with the UK. The project will work in four ODA countries, Ghana, India, Malaysia and South Africa, but will disseminate the lessons and practice innovation across the Commonwealth. It will focus on three result areas which integrate work at system, institution and individual levels.

The deadline for submission of the Request For Proposal (RFP) is by 17:00, 18 January 2019. - Please submit Annex 1, 2 and 3 to the contact person stated in the RFP.
