Delivery of Certificate IV – Training and Assessment, Autonomous Region of Bougainville (ARoB)

Australia’s education assistance in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is designed to address education access, including for women and girls, improve the quality of education, and improve young people’s employability. The Australian Government provides support to the basic, secondary, technical and higher education sectors using a range of mechanisms, including through the Education Capacity Development Facility (ECDF). ECDF provides high-quality technical, operational and logistical assistance to the education sector as prioritised by Australia and the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG).

Australia’s support to the education sector in the Autonomous Region of Bouganville (ARoB) is delivered through the Australian High Commission (AHC) Education Program. The Constitution of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Education Objectives and Directives states that, “The ARoB Government shall strive to achieve universal primary, secondary and adult education of the highest possible standard and directed to enable all students to participate fully in the lives of the Bougainville communities to which they belong.’’

ECDF is managed by Palladium on behalf of Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

Palladium on behalf of DFAT is seeking tenders from qualified provider for the delivery of Certificate IV- Training and Assessment, in the Autonomous Region of Bouganville.

Having drawn from the Government of PNG the authority to manage its education sector (excluding higher education), the ARoB now needs help with implementation of its new education legislation.

In April 2016 over 50 technical and vocational teachers participated in the Competency Based Training and Assessment workshops delivered by the Papua New Guinea NationalDepartment of Education (NDoE) TVET Curriculum Branch and funded by the Australian High Commission. The next step in strengthening these teachers’ competencies to provide high quality delivery and assessment is to ensure that they participate in a workplace improvement focused Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
