Work Detail Project Development Objective PDO Statement 43. Increase access to quality education and training at TVET and HE levels in priority areas. Priority areas initially selected for higher education support are: agriculture, engineering, oil and gas, construction, transport and logistics, services, energy, information communication technologies (ICTs), health and education. Priority areas initially selected for TVET are: agriculture, industrial maintenance, services, logistics tourism and hospitality, construction and ICTs. These areas are subject to change, based on future relevance and strategic needs. PDO Level Indicators • Students enrolled in accredited HE programs (number); • Student enrollment at flagship TVET institutes in selected programs (by type of program, by gender) (number); • TVET qualifications endorsed37 by private sector (number); • HE qualifications endorsed by private sector/associations or professional bodies (number); and • HE students in teacher training programs benefiting from trained lecturers with support of the project (number). B. Project Components 44. The MozSkills project will use Investment Project Financing (IPF) to support the Government to improve skills development, over five years. The total cost of the activities that will be undertaken under the project with support from this IDA Grant is estimated at US$104 million. The project will be implemented using a combination of financing mechanisms such as competitive funding, performance-based conditions (PBCs) and direct expenditures financing. There are two PBCs, one oriented to TVET and the other to higher education. Each of the PBCs aims to enable key elements of quality and governance within the TVET and HE sectors. Considering previous support to the regulatory framework for TVET financing and to quality assurance in HE, the use of PBCs will act as an incentive to the operationalization of the National Training Fund for Professional Education and quality assurance units in HEIs. These are foundational pillars to strengthen the ongoing TVET reform and the implementation of quality assurance mechanisms within TVET and HEIs. The reimbursement of funds of selected activities will be based on an Eligible Expenditure Program (EEP) conditioned on satisfactory achievement of the PBCs. Each PBC will reflect intermediate outcomes, outputs, or institutional changes that are critical to achievement of the PDO. The list of PBCs can be found in Table 3. The proposed project will focus on three important types of skills development: TVET, HE and teacher training.
