U.S. Embassy in Georgia: Promoting Gender Equality in TVET Exchange Program

Deadline: 23 July 2018

The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi has announced an open competition for an implementing partner for the Promoting Gender Equality in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Exchange Program:

  • to facilitate a clear understanding of key barriers to female participation in TVET and analyze their implications in women’s employment and economic empowerment;
  • to provide practical tools and guidance on how to mainstream gender effectively into the TVET institutional structures, systems, programs and activities;
  • to strengthen the capacity of TVET providers to overcome gender disparity in student recruitment and retention.

U.S. non-profit/non-governmental organizations, public and private educational institutions, including TVET providers, may submit proposals to manage a year-long project to support the professional development of the staff of select Georgian TVET institutions through a robust professional study tour at U.S. training centers, with site visits to the relevant TVET institutions, partners, and policymakers in the United States.

Program Objectives

  • Increase the participation of female students in formerly male-dominated TVET programs;
  • Mainstream the gender perspective in all policy planning, implementation, and evaluation activities to fully benefit from women’s competence, experience, and potential in TVET;
  • Strengthen the capacity of TVET providers to overcome gender disparity in student recruitment and retention;
  • Improve the image of TVET and increase its attractiveness by teaching skills to Georgian TVET admissions administrators to successfully execute a comprehensive social media and public awareness campaign to combat gender-based stereotypes in TVET; and
  • Build the capacity of TVET provider institutions to better communicate with the public and stakeholders about TVET opportunities and reforms.

Funding Information

  • Total available funding: $225,000
  • Anticipated program start date: October 1, 2018
  • Length of performance period: 1 year
