Urban Youth Employment Program (UYEP) Literacy and Livelihood Training Program Background

The Government of Papua New Guinea has received a credit from the International Development Association toward the cost of the Urban Youth Employment Project (UYEP) and it intends to engage consultant training providers for the provision of Literacy and Livelihoods Training to support the implementation of the UYEP’s Skills Development and Employment Scheme under Component 2.

The project’s development objectives are to provide urban youth with income from temporary employment opportunities and to increase their employability. The project focuses on youth in the NCD area between the ages of 16 and 35, including those that have lived in NCD in the last 12 months, and have not attended formal schooling or had a wage job in the last six months.

The Literacy and Livelihoods Training Project seeks to increase the employability of disadvantaged urban youth. The project will establish and implement a classroom-based training program designed to train approximately 500 youth in the areas of adult literacy and numeracy, financial literacy, and skills for livelihoods and entry-level employment. This training will be conducted over a 16-month period, from March 2017 to June 2018.

A curriculum will be designed and delivered by a team of experienced trainers. The project management team will be responsible for ensuring high quality and timely delivery of the training program, monitoring and review of progress, and updating of curriculum as appropriate throughout the project. The project management team will submit a series of deliverables including training materials and progress reports. A final evaluation of the project will also be undertaken. A local partner (Anglicare) will be engaged to provide the training venue and to provide administrative and logical support.
