The overall objective of this assignment is to constantly improve the quality, relevance and sustainability of VET projects funded under EU bilateral cooperation, in order to provide more high quality and demand-driven VET in developing countries. The specific objective of the assignment is to track and assess the achievements and challenges encountered in the implementation of VET projects in EU bilateral cooperation in order to influence policy decisions regarding the development of VET interventions. To this purpose, a monitoring tool should be developed and implemented, aimed at constantly increase the quality, in terms of relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of VET projects. The monitoring tool should take into account: 1. Quantitative data (ex. resources invested by type of activity, target groups, beneficiaries, enterprises involved, etc.) 2. Qualitative analysis of the VET projects (ex. access and attractiveness, role of employees, work based learning, engagement of the private sector etc.) 3. Sustainability (ex. progress made in strengthening the capacity of partner countries to coordinate or directly provide support to demand-driven and learner-centred VET, public and private investment in VET, etc). The assumption on which the monitoring tool should be based is that a systematic and consistent approach to collecting, analysing and using data provides a more secure way of making decisions in relation to VET provision. Therefore, the focus would be on measuring achievements against the main building blocks of VET , assessing whether the envisaged outputs have been achieved and what has been the contribution of the project towards the overall objective of improving/modernizing VET systems and increasing the employability of workforce.
