Serbia: Terms of Reference for an Evaluation of “International Business College Mitrovica in Kosovo”

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: Spark
Country: Serbia
Closing date: 10 Oct 2017

Introduction

SPARK as implementing agency of the International Business College Mitrovica, has drawn-up a Terms of Reference for a consultant to undertake a process evaluation of project “International Business College Mitrovica”. As SPARK is handing over management of the IBCM to a new local independent non-profit IBCM organization it is launching an end-of project external evaluation to:

  • Evaluate the extent to which the Project has achieved its project objectives and outcomes according to its logical framework;
  • Evaluate the quality of the Project activities to date;
  • Identify any unplanned or unforeseen effects of the Project to date;
  • Draw lessons for possible similar future interventions.

Project Description

In March 2010 an international business college in Mitrovica opened its doors to help improve dire economic prospects and alleviate ethnic tensions, whilst helping Kosovo to prepare for its future EU Integration. The college offers EU certified 2-year higher vocational joint diplomas, which can be extended to dual Bachelor during a subsequent 1.5 year top-up phase. The college promotes equal opportunities for all communities and has an active gender policy. A preparatory language programme prepares students from socio-economic disadvantaged groups to meet entry-requirements and reduced tuition fees as well as enabling a limited group of students to enroll in the programme. As all students study in English, the network created will pay-off when they enter the labor market and start to act as liaisons between communities. Graduates not only acquire skills needed by businesses and a public institution, the strong international (EU) orientation of the college also prepares them for European accession.

Project Objectives and Expected Results

  • To create a sustainable truly inclusive higher vocational institution, producing young professional civil servants and business leaders in Mitrovica region, used to work in multi-ethnic teams;
  • To improve employability through study programs with a heavy focus on practice and skills as well as facilitate graduates to start their own enterprises;
  • To assist Kosovo on its path to EU integration by providing modern curricula in doing Business with the EU and training (future and existing) civil servants in EU Integration.

Evaluation Objectives

  • As the IBCM is moving on independently from SPARK it is important to take stock of accomplishments to date and identify lessons learned for similar future interventions. Although Project implementation has been monitored through regular progress reports submitted to donors, a more comprehensive and objective evaluation by an external consultant is deemed necessary to validate results reported and draw lessons.

Thus, the objectives of the evaluation are the following:

  • Assess the extent to which the project achieved its overall objectives and outputs as identified in the Project Documents;
  • Review effectiveness of the overall Project interventions, its main achievements, compliance with expanding country’s needs and overall impact in improving the situation of youth’s tertiary educational needs in business and public administration;
  • Review and evaluate the extent to which project outputs have reached the intended beneficiaries;
  • Assess the likelihood of continuation and sustainability of project outputs and benefits after completion of the project – analyze how far the exit policy in the project ensures the sustainability of the project benefits;
  • Identifying lessons learned for similar future interventions.

Expected Outputs

The Evaluator is expected to produce:

  • An Evaluation Report that highlights the findings, recommendations and lessons learnt, and gives a rating of performance. This report should follow an Evaluation Report Template provided .
  • A set of practical recommendations on similar future interventions.

Scope of the Evaluation

In order to accomplish the above mentioned objectives, the consultants will have to perform the following tasks:

  • Provide an assessment of the overall Project’s progress, relevance, efficiency and effectiveness;
  • Provide an assessment of the progress in achieving expected outputs as well as realized intended and unintended results and effects of the Project;
  • Provide an assessment if the original strategic aims focus of the project are still relevant for the priority and needs of the Mitrovica region specifically and Kosovo general;
  • Highlight key/major results, gaps, methodologies and good practices;
  • Highlight lessons learned;

Methodology for Evaluation Approach

The evaluator should coordinate closely with the IBCM and SPARK project team and Project stakeholders as well as donors. Consultations should be held with relevant Government partners, civil society, private sector and donors involved into the process. Based on a set of relevant quantifiable and qualitative indicators, a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods for collection and analysis of the data should be used, like: documentation review, interviews, visits to the partners and surveys; questionnaires; personal observations, as well as social, economic and political context within which the Project takes place.

During the project evaluation, the evaluator is expected to apply the following approaches for data collection and analysis:

  • Desk review of relevant documents (project documents, all project reports to date, etc.);
