CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR DEVELOPING AND IMPLEMENTING A BUSINESS PLAN FOR SUSTAINABLE TRAINING, MENTORSHIP AND JOB PLACEMENT OF FULL STACK MOBILE AND WEB SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS UNDER THE INSTITUTIONAL GRANTS WINDOW.
The Growth and Employment (GEM) Project, a World Bank funded project implemented by the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI) is pleased to invite proposals from an institution or consortium (academic institutions, industrial centres, research institutions, business membership organisations, and non-governmental organisations) to develop a sustainable training programme delivering market driven full stack mobile and web developer training to Nigerian ICT graduates. Trainees will graduate with market demanded skills, and during training will have been exposed to potential employers or have gained experience navigating outsourcing platforms. The proposed model must demonstrate financial sustainability beyond GEM support, and show how it will continue to evolve such that as market skills requirements change, the training and training resources adapt to meet industry needs. GEM will support detailed design, establishment and piloting of the model, during which pilot phase 250 trainees will be taken through to graduation. Success criteria for the support will include placement of graduates with employers, or validated evidence of viable self-employment being undertaken.
At the end of the pilot, Nigerian ICT graduates will therefore have access to an affordable, accessible, evolving and ongoing market driven full stack / web developer training programme. The ICT industry will have access to an ongoing supply of trained employees that meet their skills needs. Proposals will in part be appraised on innovative ways of ensuring post-graduation employment or self-employment for trainees. The business model should indicate sustainable self-funding capacity upon conclusion of the GEM funded pilot.
