Urban Youth Literacy and Livelihoods Training
Project Title: UYEP Literacy and Livelihoods Training Location: Papua New Guinea Client: PNG National Capital District Commission (NCDC) / World Bank Date: January 2017 – June 2018
Montrose has been contracted to design a curriculum and implement classroom based training for young adults with low levels of functional literacy and education in Port Moresby, PNG.
The PNG National Capital District Commission (NCDC) through the Urban Youth Employment Project (UYEP) requires the services of a qualified company to train approximately 500 youth in three areas of 1) adult literacy and numeracy; 2) financial literacy; 3) skills for livelihoods and entry-level employment. The intention is to improve the basic literacy, numeracy, financial literacy and employability skills of participants and contribute to their improved post-project employment.
Montrose, in partnership with Anglicare PNG Inc., will design a curriculum which will incorporate relevant training tools and methods that are appropriate for young adults (15 – 35 years old) with low levels of functional literacy and education as well as implement a classroom based training programme for around 500 participants. The objective will be to provide participants with the information and basic skills necessary to make changes in their lifestyle, values, and behaviours that will in turn lead to a more productive life. The training will also prepare participants for employment and improve employability. Implementation activities will include the development, review and revisions of the course content, UYEP Literacy and Livelihoods Training curriculum and instructional materials as necessary, as well as the monitoring and evaluation of the quality of the training provided, and revisions as required to increase the quality and impact of the training on the youth participants.
