Expression of Interest Trainer for (ASH) against sexual harassment workshop” PN#18.2208.9-001.00 QuA-VET

Brief information on the project

The project "Improving the Quality and Attractiveness of Vocational Education and Training in Lebanon" aims to increasingly align vocational education and training in sectors with sustainable employment potentials with the needs of the Lebanese economy.

Emphasis is placed on improving the partnership between vocational training institutions and the private sector, strengthening human resource capacity in vocational training institutions, and developing practice-oriented training programs. The target groups of the project are young people, unemployed and underemployed adults who want to improve their employment prospects through qualifications relevant to the labor market.

The implementing partner is the Directorate General for Vocational and Technical Education (DGVTE), which lacks capacity at various levels to involve the private sector in vocational education and training. This concerns curriculum development, teacher training and the expansion of practical elements in teaching. The project's advisory approach includes establishing and advising coordination bodies with representatives of the state vocational training sector and company representatives at the macro and steering levels, piloting cooperation models between vocational training institutions and the private sector, systematic human resources development in public vocational training institutions and testing competency-based, modularized training programs in the field of Maintenance of Manufacturing Machine (MMM) at BT level as well as the field of Health Inspection & Food Safety (HIFS) at TS Level.

Context

Highly competent, qualified, motivated, flexible, and creative VTE teachers are the backbone of any TVET system; capable of adjusting to changing technological environments and creating conducive learning environments for their students.

After the organisation of Training of Trainers (ToT), teachers and directors are led to implement Competency based trainings (CBT) in their respective sectors and to train participants from different backgrounds through practical training and to tutor them in the frame of Work Based Learning, where participants spend 2 weeks in companies from the private sector to apply the learned skills.

TVET teachers require anti-sexual harassment training, especially in male-dominated domains, to foster a safe and inclusive learning environment for female students, ensuring their dignity and promoting equal opportunities in technical and vocational education.

To support teachers and directors in their tasks, QuA-VET will organise training workshops on the topic of sexual harassment, starting from the basic concepts and also covering the topics of definition, complaint procedures, teacher’s roles and responsibility and focusing on the anti-sexual harassment supporter task from a psychological aspect.

The training should take place in Beirut in a location made available by the QuA-VET project and will gather teachers and directors from different TVET schools from all over Lebanon.
