BMB Mott MacDonald has been appointed by the Department for International Development (DFID) as the implementation agent for the Skills for Employment (S4E) and Training for Resilience (T4R) programme in Mozambique. The programme aims to aid the creation of sustainable jobs and improve income prospects for the country’s population by improving access to the Mozambique’s labour market.
As service provider for the programme, BMB Mott MacDonald is responsible for managing the £10 million employment fund aimed at brokering agreements between non-state TVET providers and the private sector. This fund will be used to support the development of a more robust labour market and better prepared work force that is ready to meet the demands of the modern Mozambican economy.
The consultancy will also carry out technical and financial assessments of potential grantees, effectively distribute grants and report on the use of the grants and the skills development funded by the grants. Additionally, BMB Mott MacDonald will design and implement a management information system, a monitoring and evaluation framework and a communications strategy for the wider JOBA programme, and will oversee the provision of resources.
The JOBA programme, funded with UK aid from the UK government is expected to run until March 2021.
