The Department for International Development (DFID), represented by the Skills for Prosperity Programme Team in Brazil is requesting the support of a gender and social development expert to maximise the programme’s positive impact on low-income communities, girls and women and other disadvantaged groups in Brazil.
In line with the Prosperity Fund’s objectives on poverty reduction, social and economic development and gender equality, this tender aims to seek adequate expertise and experience to improve the programme’s activities in Brazil, following the recommendations provided by the Multi-Country Scoping and Recommendation Report on Gender and Social Inclusion in Higher Education and Technical and Vocational Education.
The selected person/institution will follow and build on the report’s recommendations and the programme delivery partners’ proposal by reviewing the recommendations and activities to ensure they take full account of the Brazilian context, providing further recommendations to maximise the programme’s impact, providing advice to the programme lead, and assuring that the delivery partners are complying with the recommendations and targets. The expert will also have the ability to further develop and advance the gender focus of the Programme based on their experience and on international evidence and best practice.
