Developing and implementing a training for Industrial Training Institute (ITI) management staff in the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu

India has the largest working-age population in the world. More that 15 million young people enter the Indian labour market every year, and by 2030, one in every 5 youth will be Indian. These facts combined with the country’s immense economic development over the past 10 years have nurtured India’s ambition to become a globally leading manufacturing hub. At the same time, India’s industries are facing an acute shortage of skilled workers. Recent analyses project that this shortage will amount to more than 130 million workers by the year 2022. Furthermore, the mismatch between the skill sets that are available in the labour market and those that are in demand is growing. To address these challenges, the Government of India has made it a priority to actively involve the private sector in the design and implementation of vocational education and training (VET) programmes and to rapidly scale-up cooperative skill development efforts across the country.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), GmbH, is working closely with the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) to strengthen the capacities of key actors involved in the implementation of cooperative VET. One group of actors that is given special consideration in this context comprises the principals and other responsible management staff of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs). While ITIs play a major role in India’s formal VET system, they oftentimes lack the required linkages with the private sector to align the contents of ITI-based VET with the needs of the industry. GIZ therefore invites bids from experienced Indian firms to design and implement a comprehensive training concept for strengthening the capacities of ITI managers in the field of cooperative VET. The geographical focus of the assignment lies on the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana, Rajasthan and West Bengal.

Please refer to the bidding conditions and follow the instructions carefully.
