Detailed description of project Back

The third phase of EU’s support to the TVET sector is “Supporting TVET sector in Pakistan (TVET III)”. It is based on the key achievements of TVET I and II and the lessons learnt from their implementation and the recommendations of their evaluations. The subject Terms of Reference relate to evaluation of TVET III.

TVET III is implemented by GIZ through a Delegation Agreement. The total cost of the project is EUR 56 million with EU contribution of EUR 43.5 million. Other donors include Government of Germany and Norway with contributions of EUR 8 million and EUR 4.5 million respectively.

The overall objective of the project is “to contribute towards socio-economic growth of Pakistan through development of human resources that enable people to engage in productive employment”.

The specific objective is to improve governance and private sector participation in the TVET sector to enhance access to quality skills development that meets demand of the labour market.

The project has two expected results:

  • Expected result 1: Equitable access to market led TVET system and enhanced employability of graduates through implementation of relevant provisions of National TVET policy and National Skills Strategy;
  • Expected result 2: Trainings designed and delivered with increased collaboration and private sector involvement, leading to greater employability.

Type of services provided

The evaluation will assess the Action using the five standard DAC evaluation criteria, namely: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and perspectives of impact. In addition, the evaluation will assess two EU specific evaluation criteria:

  • The EU added value (the extent to which the Programme adds benefits to what would have resulted from Member States’ interventions only);
  • The coherence of the Action itself, with the EU strategy in Pakistan and with other EU policies and Member State Actions, and other donors particularly the World Bank and DFID.

The services are provided by a team of two experts.
