EOI -Teachers for General Subjects of BT2 in e-Learning - QuA-VET 18.2208.9-001.00

I. General information

  1. Brief information on the project

The Multi-Donor Action “Improving the Quality and Attractiveness of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Lebanon for poor and vulnerable social groups” is jointly co-financed by the European Union and the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The joint action is implemented by GIZ as a specific Action within the wider BMZ project “Improving the Quality and Attractiveness of TVET in Lebanon (QuA-VET)”.

The aim of the action is to orient the vocational training towards the qualification needs of the labour market in sectors with sustainable employment potentials, therefore improving the employment capacities for poor and vulnerable social groups living in Lebanon. The implementing partner, the Directorate General for Vocational and Technical Education (DGVTE), requires further support in involving the private sector in vocational education and training. Thus, the project’s emphasis is placed on improving the partnership between vocational training institutions and the private sector. This includes developing modularized and practice-oriented training programmes in selected sectors, digitalizing e-learning lessons for the technical theoretical subjects of the promoted TVET programs and general subjects, and enhancing the quality of in-company training for employees and work-based learning for vulnerable individuals.

The target groups of the project are vulnerable youth and young adults (aged 15-35), including Syrian and Palestinian refugees, individuals from hosting communities, TVET Lebanese students, unemployed or underemployed individuals (aged 17 to 35), and employees in Micro, Small, and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) seeking to improve their employment prospects through relevant qualifications.

   2. Context

Background – e-Learning

Considering the stumbling economic situation that is affecting Lebanon at several levels, TVET students are not attending school on regular basis due to the transportation fees and unstable security situation in some regions of the country.

Based on the experience in e-learning which the GIZ projects’ ProVTE and VTE4all have collected and considering that the teaching and learning at distance will be a constant in the future in the form of blended learning, the QuA-VET project developed the technical theoretical courses of Baccalaureate Technique (BT) Industrial Mechanics and Technicien Superieur (TS) Health Inspection and Food Safety in e-Learning (EL) modality. Following the development and digitalization of the BT1 general subjects by the VTE4all project, the QuA-VET project intends to extend the development of e-learning lessons to include the BT2 general subjects for all BT2 programs, according to the newly developed curriculum. This will ensure that students have access to a larger number of courses and their learning is not interrupted due to the instability in the country. Moreover, the lessons in EL modality will be a support for teachers during the in-presence lessons.  

Up to now teachers of the BT general subjects are used to deliver the content of the courses in classroom settings. In order to address the need for competent teachers who are able to develop general subjects in e-Learning modality, a competent and motivated group of public TVET teachers will be selected and trained to develop the courses in EL modality.

Outline of the mission

To ensure a consistent level of quality of the content and the flow of the e-Learning Lessons (ELLs), a standard development process has been defined. The teachers will attend a mandatory 80-hour training course (over a period of 2 weeks), so called Digital Training of Trainers (ToT), to get familiarized with this process, with e-learning principles and with the e-learning development software.

The ToT course will be conducted in a blended modality. During the second week, the teachers will be assigned to develop one e-learning lesson (50 minutes long), in French, English or Arabic language, related to one of the BT2 general subjects listed below. His/her performance will be assessed, and the most qualified teachers will subsequently have the possibility to be contracted by QuA-VET to develop the courses of the BT general subjects following the newly developed curriculum, such as:

  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Information Technology
  • Law in Arabic language
  • English Language
  • Arabic Language
  • French Language

GIZ shall hire the contractors for the anticipated contract term, from 01.08.2024 to 01.08.2025
